USDA documents from inspections performed at the University of Wisconsin (Madison) on 8/20/02 discuss an incident of inadequate veterinary care for a pig which was being used in a surgical study. The inspectors observed the pig after surgery as being unresponsive, recumbent, and having a 1.5" diameter burn on the dorsal thoracic area. The inspectors viewed the pig again the following day, with no change. Treatment records for the pig did not show that it had even been examined on the day after surgery.
