Effects of Colored Enrichment Devices on Circadian Metabolism and Physiology in Male Sprague�Dawl...
Environmental enrichment (EE) gives laboratory animals opportunities to engage in species-specific behaviors. However, the effects of EE devices on normal physiology and scientific outcomes must be evaluated. We hypothesized that the spectral transmitt...

Eosinophils have been postulated to play a protective role against infection with respiratory syncytial virus (RSV), increase the severity of allergic asthma during respiratory viral infection, and drive vaccine-enhanced disease.
A Device that Allows Rodents to Behaviorally Thermoregulate when Housed in Vivariums
A Device that Allows Rodents to Behaviorally Thermoregulate when Housed in Vivariums
Laboratories and vivariums typically are maintained at ambient temperatures of 20 to 24 �C, leading to cold stress in mice. When mice are inactive and sleeping during the light phase, their zone of thermoneutrality associated with a basal metabolic rat...
Behavioral Characteristics of Adult Zebrafish (Danio rerio) after MS222 Anesthesia for Fin Excision
Behavioral Characteristics of Adult Zebrafish (Danio rerio) after MS222 Anesthesia for Fin Excision
The health of laboratory animals is an ethical responsibility of researchers and a critical determinant of experimental outcome. Therefore, all husbandry procedures should be evaluated for their effects on mortality, behavior, and physiology to maximiz...
Diaphragmatic Hernia of the Stomach with Gastric Rupture in a Domestic Pig
Diaphragmatic Hernia of the Stomach with Gastric Rupture in a Domestic Pig
A 5.5-mo-old castrated, male Red Duroc pig presented acutely with depression and abdominal pain 9 d after an altercation with another pig. A CT examination indicated right pneumothorax and herniation of the stomach into the thoracic cavity. Due to a po...
