In this study the influence of orbital sinus blood sampling on clinical signs was studied within the framework of various nutritional experiments. In order to assess the clinical signs in a random design, the rats were punctured in either the left or the right orbit. Thus, the effect of puncture within rats could be determined by comparing the left and right eye. Four animal technicians punctured a total of 303 rats, using different techniques. Orbital sinus blood sampling caused clinically… CONTINUE READING
