Procedure: Animal Subjects in Research

Cervical Dislocation of Rodents SOP #PRO-013

This Animal Subjects in Research procedure is in place to ensure the humane and ethical treatment of animal subjects in research. Please review the material carefully before proceeding.

Cervical dislocation is a technique used in physical euthanasia by applying pressure to the neck and dislocating the spinal column from the skull or brain. It requires skill and training. The AVMA report recommends that cervical dislocation be used only for poultry and mice or rats weighing less than 200 grams. When consistent with the experimental protocol, animals should be sedated or lightly anesthetized prior to cervical dislocation. The Attending Veterinarian must certify that any individual performing this procedure on conscious animals is trained appropriately.
