Anesthetized mongrel (weight range: 16-27 Kg) dogs were prepared for monitoring hemodynamics, blood flow distribution, plasma colloid osmotic pressure and renal functional parameters at various intervals.

Twenty-six of 39 Syrian hamsters obtained by this laboratory from a pet supplier had enteritis and showed signs of "wet tail." An enteritis was reproduced in healthy hamsters by oral inoculation of homogenized ilea and jejuna from the diseased hamsters. The most characteristic pathologicfeatures were a variably enlarged distal jejunum and ileum and(More)
Questionnaires on research activities, mortality rates observed in various age groups, extent of examination of dead hamsters, and natural disease conditions and their relative importance were returned by 24 of 43 organisations surveyed in the United States. The average preweaning mortality rate due to all causes was 11-9%. Comparative data from 6(More)
