When/Who/How to Contact the ARC Veterinary Staff
The UT Institutional Animal Care and Use Committee has issued a guidance document (#15 – Guidelines for Veterinary Care, Health Checks, and Illness Reporting) which can be found on the IACUC Policies, Procedures and Guidelines page.
All personnel involved in vertebrate animal research should be familiar with the contents of that document, which explains under what circumstances research staff must notify the ARC or the IACUC regarding animal health, procedural complications, unexpected deaths, etc. As a quick reference, here is some abbreviated information for those looking to contact the veterinary group:
For urgent animal health concerns, 24-hour veterinary assistance is available using the emergency contact number: 512-471-4145
To communicate less urgent animal health issues, send a note to the ARC veterinary staff group email address: firstname.lastname@example.org
This shared email inbox is monitored by the veterinarians and veterinary technologists and can be used to relay individual animal injury/illness reports, to report unexpected animal deaths or unanticipated research complications, etc.
To contact an ARC veterinarian directly to discuss non-emergency situations, obtain a veterinary treatment consult, etc.
You can find the updated contact information for any of the veterinarians in the Staff Directory, found at the top of this page.
