Clinical & Surgical Services

University Animal Care's Clinical and Surgical Services provide clinical and surgical support to the University's research community. Support includes assistance with projects and the performance of surgery or procedures to achieve research goals. Clinical and Surgical Support serve as a “Core Facility” for investigators, so they don’t have to duplicate resources, thus reducing research costs. Services are provided on a recharge basis.

Clinical Services is responsible for the surveillance of animal health and well-being and performing, or overseeing, the medical treatment and post-operative progress of research subjects.

Surgical Services provides aseptic and clean surgery facilities for survival and non-survival surgical procedures, as well as an assortment of equipment and supplies.
