The selective appetite of wild rabbits (Oryctolagus cuniculus (L)) for 500 mEq/1 solutions of NaCl, KC1, MgCl2 and CaCl2 was studied during pseudopregnancy or during daily treatment with 17β-estradiol dipropionate (E2) and/or progesterone. The animals were individually caged and external sodium balances were performed. An increase in NaCl appetite occurred from the 11th to the 25th day after the initiation of pseudopregnancy and during treatment with 12.5, 25 or 250 μg E2/day. The response to… 
The control of salt appetite in wild rabbits during lactation.
Treatment with a combination of physiological amounts of ACTH, PRL, and oxytocin produced increases in NaCl, KC1, CaCl2, and water intakes comparable to those present during lactation, and results were obtained when this hormone riplet was given to male or female rabbits which had been pretrea...
Water and salt intake of wild rabbits (Oryctolagus cuniculus (L)) following dipsogenic stimuli.
The increased intake of 0.5 M‐NaCl solution observed during and after the long‐term intraventricular administration of angiotensin II in the wild rabbit appears predominantly a response to sodium deficit caused by natriuresis.
Influence of estrous and circadian cycles on calcium intake of the rat
Effect of self-determined intravenous infusion of hypertonic NaCl on Na appetite of sheep.
It is concluded that systemic injections of hypertonic NaCl are effective within 10 to 20 min in reducing the sodium appetite of Na-depleted animals.
Calcium: taste, intake, and appetite.
The broad range of observations documenting the existence of a behavioral limb of calcium homeostasis provides a strong foundation for future genetic and physiological analyses of this behavior.
SGK1‐dependent salt appetite in pregnant mice
Aim:  Pregnancy is typically paralleled by substantial increase in maternal extracellular fluid volume, requiring net accumulation of water and NaCl. The positive water and salt balance is
