By Lars Friis Mikkelsen, Heidi Bentsen, Birgitte Gerlach and Novo Nordisk A/s

Abstract

All experimental procedures should be evaluated and, if possible, altered to reduce discomfort, pain and/or distress and to enhance the involved animal’s well-being. This short communication describes a new method for the long term restraining of dogs for experimental procedures like multiple blood sampling. The newly developed platform offers the dog a choice either to lie down, sit upright, or stand up, and facilitates an easy blood sampling procedure while ensuring a good and safe restraining of the dog. Sammendrag Alle brugte eksperimentelle procedurer bør evalueres og om muligt forandres for at reducere ubehag, smerte og/eller lidelse samt for om muligt at forøge involverede dyrs velbefindende. I denne korte artikel beskrives en ny metode til langtidsfiksering af hunde i forbindelse med eksperimentelle procedurer såsom gentagne blodprøvetagninger. Den nyudviklede fikseringsplatform gør det muligt for hunden selv at vælge, om den vil ligge ned, sidde eller stå op og muliggør samtidig en nem blodprøvetagning samt en god fiksering af hunden
