Veterinarians
The UW-Madison chancellor affirms the authority of RARC laboratory animal veterinarians through the Veterinary Authority Letter. Members of the veterinary staff are specialty-board certified and have extensive experience.

Animal care
RARC veterinarians work closely with campus husbandry programs to ensure a high standard of care. They advise researchers on species-specific enrichment and housing and how these factors can affect research. They also help researchers manage deviations from normal animal health and train investigators and personnel on working with animals.

Institutional oversight
RARC veterinarians facilitate compliance with animal care and use regulations. They serve on Institutional Animal Care and Use Committees educate committee members and the public. They advise and assist investigators with protocol design, anesthesia and analgesia, technique development, feasibility of a new model, and the determination of animal numbers.

Veterinary technicians
RARC veterinary technicians provide specialized support to the campus veterinary care program, assisting veterinarians and research staff by providing a range of services, including medical care, diagnostic testing, sample-collecting, facilities maintenance, colony management, education and training, environmental enrichment, and animal transfer.
