This report describes National Institute of Health policies on animal welfare, the 1976 amendment to the Animal Welfare Act, and relevant portions of the Endangered Species Act of 1973. It is divided into four sections on the following topics: (1) laboratory animal management; (2) laboratory animal quality and health; (3) institutional policies; and (4) physical plant. A committee on the care and use of animals is recommended as an effective device in overseeing treatment at the institutional level. Details of proper care have been set out for most common laboratory animals. (BB)
