Atlantic Veterinary College - 208N

Next meeting: Friday, Jan. 18, 12:30-1:15, room AVC 280N. Dr. Paul Bernard (AVC Biomedical Sciences) will lead discussion of the article: 
Makowska IJ, Weary DM. 2016. The importance of burrowing, climbing and standing upright for laboratory rats. Royal Society Open Science 3:160136. Available at http://dx.doi.org/10.1098/rsos.160136

This article looks at optimizing rodent housing from an ethological perspective, which will be of benefit to both the animals and the science.

The Animal Welfare Journal Club meets once a month (third Friday, generally) to discuss scientific articles related to animal welfare; for eg in areas of animal welfare science, animal ethics, animal behaviour, anesthesia and analgesia, ethical veterinary practice. Everyone is welcome to attend and to propose articles for future discussion. The club is co hosted by AVC’s Sir James Dunn Animal Welfare Centre and Animal Welfare Club. Email acrook@upei.ca or jdamico@upei.ca to be on the e-mail list for future information.
