USDA documentation for routine inspections of Yale University dated 9/3/02 cites inadequate veterinary care for the use of outdated drugs (oxytetracycline and penicillin). Three nonhuman primates (94-37, 00-38 and 00-39) are exhibiting signs of distress as a result of insufficient environmental enhancement. Violations also exist in the areas of IACUCs in the area of records regarding experiments with kittens and personnel qualifications relating to inadequate dosing of post-operative analgesics. However, the most significant violation on this date is the fact that several primates were without water at the time of inspection. The inspection of 9/6/01 also showed a primate who indicated signs of psychological distress.
