Well done to Vivian and Emily for all their work on this paper, which nicely shows that the Rat Grimace Scale is not limited to being a research tool, but can be successfully applied to real-time pain assessment. This will allow rapid assessment and decision making, improving the care and welfare of laboratory and pet rats.
