Pain assessment rodents
Body conditions scoring rodents
Severity Asssessment (general)
Monitoring protocols (score sheets) should be adapted to the individual experiments in terms of monitoring intervals and symptoms.
It is recommended to list and assess general symptoms (e.g. activity, behaviour, posture) and specific symptoms (related to the experiment). Individual symptoms should be evaluated, but also the sum of these.
The animal welfare officers can provide support in the preparation of score sheets; in addition, LTK offers a learning and further training opportunity with M11 "Score Sheet".
