    Coturnix (Coturnix coturnix japonica): standards and guidelines for the breeding, care, and management of laboratory animals. Washington, National Academy of Sciences, (OCoLC) Document Type: Book: All Authors / Contributors: National Research Council (U.S.). Institute of Laboratory Animal Resources. Subcommittee on Avian. Consistently delivered quality programs of husbandry and veterinary care provide the foundation that enables valid scientific research. For proper management of research animals, the animal care and research staff must be responsible, sensitive to the animals’ health and well-being, well trained in the humane care and use of laboratory animals, highly motivated, experienced, . In this chapter, brief practical information is given, based on the extensive experience of The Wistar Institute in the breeding and care of albino and other rats for research purposes. For more detailed information, the reader is referred to a comprehensive monograph .

REX – With curly hair and curly whiskers. TAILLESS – Complete absence of a tail, similiar to the Manx cats.

HAIRLESS – Complete absence of hair. Wild rats act as a reservoir for several zoonotic agents. Whilst there are reported cases of laboratory and animal technicians contracting disease from laboratory rats these are relatively rare and most of them occurred several years ago before the intro- duction of the high-quality disease-free animals which are widely available for use today.

Breeding and reproduction in rats can decrease because of factors such as age, malnutrition, abnormal light cycles, cold environment, cysts on the ovaries, tumors, and inadequate nesting material. Pregnant females may abort, abandon, or eat their babies because of inadequate food, lack of water, overcrowding in group housing, inadequate nesting.

The seminal reference on the care of laboratory and captive animals, The UFAW Handbook on the Care and Management of Laboratory and Other Research Animals is a must-have for anyone working in this field.

The UFAW Handbook has been the definitive text since Written for an international audience, it contains contributions from experts from around the world. The laboratory rat has long been used in experimental physiology and has made significant contributions to several complex areas of mammalian biology.

This chapter presents the taxonomy of laboratory rat and discusses its stocks and strains. Rats are rodents, and thus members of the largest family of mammals. Gnotobiotes: Standards and Guidelines for the Breeding, Care, and Management of Laboratory Animals.

Laboratory rats and mice are very social animals, and as such, disruption to groups should be minimised. Young rats, in particular are very exploratory and active, and interact socially to an enormous degree.

Guinea pigs. Guinea pigs may appear nervous but are tame and can be handled easily. Breeding characteristics are strain- and environment-dependent. Establish normative breeding data for each strain at your facility to detect colony changes, identify deviations and maximize breeding efficiency.

Genetic drift can alter strain phenotype over time. Cryopreserve your unique strains with The Jackson Laboratory and refresh inbred.

Laboratory animal care is the application of veterinary medicine and animal science to the acquisition of laboratory animals and to their management, nutrition, breeding, and diseases.

The term also relates to the care that is provided to animals as an aid in. The proper care and use of laboratory animals in research, testing, teaching, and production (animal use) require scientific and professional judgment based on the animals’ needs and their intended use. An animal care and use program (hereafter referred to as the Program) comprises all activities conducted by and at an institution that have a direct impact on the well-being of.
