    With their representation in research on the rise because of refinement in animal experimentation, swine, and miniature swine in particular, are viewed as an alternative non-rodent species to commonly used non-rodent species, such as dogs and primates. Written to provide a complete source of information on the species, this handy guide addresses the biology, husbandry, management, veterinary care and research application of the laboratory swine. "The Laboratory Swine", a volume in the "Laboratory Animal Pocket Reference Series", is divided into six parts: Part I, Important Biological Features, examines everything from different breeds and behavior, to anatomical and physiological features, as well as digestive, cardiovascular and pulmonary systems. Husbandry, Part II, addresses housing, nutrition, sanitation, transportation, and more. Management and Quality Assurance looks at the impact of infections on animal research using swine; zoonotic diseases; legal regulations; genetic monitoring and more. Part IV, Veterinary Care, covers a variety of topics, such as clinical examination of swine, diseases of swine, pain recognition in swine, and post-operative management. Restraint, sampling techniques, basic surgical procedures, and other issues are addressed in Experimental Techniques. And Resources, Part VI, provides extensive references, including as handbooks, journals and Internet sites, for further study. Ideal for animal caretakers, technicians, investigators, and laboratory animal veterinarians, "The Laboratory Swine" is a single source reference that contributes to the humane care and use of swine in research.
