Administration of Research Materials on Animals

Oct 24th 2015 at 5:40 AM

Animals have been the object of laboratory researches for pretty long and for carrying out the researches various substances are administered on them. this is often the part of experimental protocols in the laboratories. While application of liquids and medications are often meant for research purposes sometimes they are also administered as part of treatment processes applied on the animals.

Taking Care of Animal Welfare

A major consideration in a world that is growing more and more conscious about ecological balances and the part played by animals in them is animal welfare. Administration of substances like research liquids can adversely affect the well being of the animal on which it is administered. Very often the effects of liquids and other substances administered on the animals are similar to their effects on human anatomy and it is therefore necessary that the researchers move with due care and caution.

Understanding the Dosing Principles

However an important factor to be taken into consideration by researchers and veterinary doctors is the appropriate dose of the liquid or the substances like bremelanotide on the animal. Administering single doses may not be the challenging factor for veterinarian or research scholars. But there is necessity for determining the appropriate doses and their way of administration so that the animal does not suffer unduly in the process. Delivering right amount of material in the right manner on the animal is important and that is the challenge faced by the researcher or veterinarian.

Special Challenges for Researchers

Researchers however face special challenges when the requirements are repeated administration of the research liquid or other substances on the animal. The same analogy applies for the veterinarian using components repeatedly for the purpose of treatment of ailing animals. Inadequate knowledge about the specific properties of the testing substance or materials can pose major challenge for the researchers as the consequences of administering them is not known in advance. It is important gathering knowledge about the preparation of the liquid and its administration on the animal for research purposes is therefore of primary importance.

Effects of Specific Drugs on Animals

While using specific drugs on animals like the Bremelanotide, it is important learning about their possible effects on them. studies have revealed that its use can induce lordosis in the animal on which it is administered. It was found that like some other materials like the Viagra this does not affect adversely the vascular system of the animal. This prompted the scientists to introduce its use for treatment of sexual dysfunction in male and disorder in female. Subsequently however such uses were discontinued. After the product was modified reducing its effects on blood pressure its use continued again.

When drugs, liquids and other materials are administered on the animals they need to be selected carefully so that they do not introduce some confounding impacts on the anatomy of the animal. In addition; the techniques and equipments used should be also be selected with due care and caution while applying the safest and best techniques for such administration. Last but not the least the component should be safe and free of contaminations.
