Laboratory Animal Medical Services

Reporting Animal Concerns

Many instances of noncompliance may be corrected within the laboratory. Noncompliance may also be discussed with LAMS veterinary or management staff if internal routes through the laboratory are unsuccessful.

  LAMS Office: Phone - (513) 558-5171

If internal routes through the laboratory and LAMS are unsuccessful, please contact the IACUC Office.

If all internal routes of reporting noncompliance are unsuccessful, the University has contracted with a compliance agency for a toll-free reporting hotline. The greatest benefit of the toll-free hotline, other than being free to the user, is the anonymity. Callers may report noncompliance and request a copy of the final report. Although the caller's name and mailing address may be given to the compliance agency, no one at the University may access this information. The caller remains 100% anonymous to all individuals at the University. The hotline is not restricted to animal concerns.

  Toll-Free Anonymous Compliance Hotline - (800) 889-1547
