Mouse training, caring, etc. in lab?

Post by kanzure » Sun Dec 09, 2007 9:57 pm

Hey all,

I am in search for some good mouse literature to read up on, such as taking care of lab mice as well as training methodologies or previous successes and so on. Where should I look or does anybody have a zip file of papers I can take a look at?

I did a search over the indexes to see if this might be a dupe, but I couldn't find anything. It's very likely I might have missed something, so does anybody know if this has been discussed here before?

Thanks,
- Bryan

Where are you? Many countries have very specific requirements for housing and treatment of lab animals, including mice - you should at least find out if yours is one of them.

Hi Darby,

I am in the United States. There are some other threads on the other forums that have already answered this question. Such as here.

I've kept mice for years as feeder animals, so haven't had to worry about the research regulations, and a population can get really out of control. On the other hand, we have bred for appearance and have quite the assortment of colors and marking patterns.
