Abstract
To improve the quality of education and research with laboratory animals, Experimental Animal Center (EAC) was established as an animal facility in the Joint Faculty of Veterinary Medicine, Kagoshima University, on September 1st, 2015. We can house and use large-sized (bovine and horse), medium-sized (dog, cat, pig and bird), and small-sized (rodent and rabbit) animals in this facility. Our care and use program of laboratory animals in EAC was fully accredited by AAALAC International on June 9th, 2016. We are using this facility to demonstrate to our students that performance of veterinary care and animal welfare is important for appropriate education and scientific research with laboratory animals in Veterinary Medicine.
