Euthanasia

In the case of a guinea pig becoming so sick, diseased or injured that recovery is unlikely or undesirable on humane grounds, euthanasia must be arranged with a veterinarian or a person competent in the technique for guinea pigs.

A record of deaths is required for the annual report, Form D, to SAEC and all deaths resulting from unexpected or adverse events must be reported immediately to the SAEC using Form C1 and Form C2.
