Regulations of post-operative procedures for laboratory canines are evaluated through the products of experiments, research articles. Information is acquired from Anesthesia and Analgesia, a medical journal, and the American Journal for Veterinary Research, a veterinary journal. Recent articles including procedures involving the thorax, abdomen, hips, or stifles are part of this study. Authors of research articles as well as local IACUC members are surveyed. The effectiveness of the system of regulation is examined and measures to strengthen it are suggested.
