Summary

This book demonstrates that good science, animal care, and humane ethics are consonant and complimentary. Many environmental and treatment-related variables that can adversely affect both the animal and the validity of research are detailed. Fox provides a critical review of present standards of laboratory animal husbandry and routine experimental procedures.

Michael Fox is Director of the Institute for the study of Animal Problems and Scientific Director of The Humane Society of the United States.
