The request was successful.

Dear University of Cambridge,

Under the FOI Act 2005, please could you supply the following information:

How many dogs were used for experiments at any of the departments of the university between January 2010 and August 2014?

How many dogs were used for dissection at any of the departments of the university in that time?

I would like a break-down of the different types and breeds of dogs used and what departments they were used by.

I would like a break-down of where the dogs were sourced from.

I request to know the Home Office licence classification for these
experiments in terms of pain, lasting harm, etc. if classified.

I request to know if the animals used were for medical or non
medical research.

What percentage of research is carried out on dogs in comparison to other animal experiments?

Yours faithfully,

Nora Dixon
