The use of animals in research adheres to scientific and ethical principles that promote humane care and practice. Scientific advances in our understanding of animal physiology and behavior often require theories to be revised and standards of practice to be updated to improve laboratory animal welfare. Recognition and Alleviation of Pain in Laboratory Animals, the second of two reports revising the 1992 publication Recognition and Alleviation of Pain and Distress in Laboratory Animals from the Institute for Laboratory Animal Research (ILAR), focuses on pain experienced by animals used in research. This book aims to educate laboratory animal veterinarians; students, researchers and investigators; Institutional Animal Care and Use Committee members; and animal care staff and animal welfare officers on the current scientific and ethical issues associated with pain in laboratory animals. It evaluates pertinent scientific literature to generate practical and pragmatic guidelines for recognizing and alleviating pain in laboratory animals, focusing specifically on the following areas: physiology of pain in commonly used laboratory species; pharmacologic and non-pharmacologic principles to control pain; identification of humane endpoints; and principles for minimizing pain associated with experimental procedures. Finally, the report identifies areas in which further scientific investigation is needed to improve laboratory animal welfare.

All animals are vulnerable to bushfires, particularly wildlife. Sadly, many animals that manage to survive the initial fire front later succumb to their injuries. Some of this suffering can be reduced by improving the rescuer response. By being better prepared before a bushfire strikes and by responding more effectively once it does, the animals that survive the first impact are more likely to be rescued and have a greater chance of recovery.This guide aims to help in both respects.Part 1 looks at the role of fire in Australia's ecology, the emergency management framework, how to prepare your rescue group and individuals, how to work with incident management teams, risk assessments, and animal rescue roles and procedures.Part 2 discusses burns and their management, examining the causes, the assessment and the different management techniques for burns patients. First Aid, pain relief, fluid management, analgesia, diagnostic tests, dressings, nutrition, skin care and physiotherapy are some of the topics covered.The author, Tania Duratovic, is a qualified veterinary nurse who works on wildlife as well as a fauna ecologist. All contents have been medically checked by Dr Howard Ralph, renowned wildlife veterinary surgeon.
