IACUC updated guidelines

IACUC updated guidelines for ferret housing in T2000 containment caging and ferret inhalant anesthesia for brief, non-painful procedures.

IACUC has instituted the Guidelines for Ferret Housing in T2000 Containment Caging, outlining the standards for housing ferrets in that type of caging system.

IACUC has also revised the guidelines for ferret inhalant anesthesia, renamed Guidelines for Ferret Inhalant Anesthesia for Brief, Non-Painful Procedures. The guidelines were revised to apply more specifically to only brief anesthetic events for which food restriction is not necessary, and which represent the typical anesthesia experience for ferrets under study at UGA.
