Animal Care


TNPRC veterinarians, veterinary technicians and animal care and behavioral management personnel provide round-the-clock care for our research colony and includes daily health checks, annual examinations, fresh fruits and vegetables, environmental enrichment, behavioral management and more. Our programs are designed to meet their species-specific needs and support their psychological well-being and include socialization similar to what is seen in wild populations, foraging opportunities, climbing structures and positive reinforcement training to help facilitate animal care, veterinary procedures and research.
