Report on Site Visits to the Veterans Affairs Medical Centers with Focus on Canine Care and Use in Research
An OLAW report on site visits to the Veterans Affairs Medical Centers (VAMC) is now available and can be downloaded at VAMC Site Visits Report (PDF). The report summarizes the results of site visits to four VAMCs. At each site visit, OLAW assessed institutional compliance with the standards of the PHS Policy on Humane Care and Use of Laboratory Animals (PHS Policy) and the Guide for the Care and Use of Laboratory Animals (Guide). While the site visits focused on dogs used in the VAMCs’ research, an overall animal care and use program review was conducted. See also NIH Guide Notice NOT-OD-19-069.
