A health assessment procurement program should be well matched with an ongoing in-house health monitoring and evaluation program. Programs for health assessment include ordering, receiving and quarantining of animals, or the placement of vendor animals directly into colony rooms. Health assessment methods for procured laboratory rodents consist of statistical sampling, clinical evaluation, laboratory evaluation, reporting results to veterinarians, interpretation of data, communication to investigators and vendors and action.
