Veterinary medical records serve as documentation of animal health and well-being assessments. The ideal medical record should tell the story of an animal from the time it arrives at WFU until the time it leaves.  While not a requirement, the USDA inspectors expect to see complete medical records in order to ensure there is effective daily observation of animals and adequate veterinary care.  Documentation of the communication between the research and veterinary staffs, as well as clear indicators of responsibility for care, are key components of what they consider to be a complete record. Registration is not required for this course.
