Communicating Research Animal Health Issues

UGA researchers are reminded  to communicate any research animal health problems or concerns to your Attending Veterinarian or the IACUC in a timely manner.

This is even more important in satellite facilities where the Attending Veterinarian may have little interaction on a day-to-day basis. Timely communication of any research animal health issues helps ensure appropriate animal health oversight that includes and promotes effective medical treatment of animals, complete veterinary medical records, and an enhanced program of disease prevention and control.

You can provide information through the “IACUC Reporting” form found on UGA’s IACUC webpage at  Or you can email the IACUC at .  Your Attending Veterinarian also has a 24 hour emergency phone at 706-542-7204.
