Adventitious infections are among the most pervasive problems encountered in the use of laboratory mice and rats. Small laboratory rodents are susceptible to more than 50 viral, bacterial, parasitic, and fungal agents, which include well-known organisms such as mouse hepatitis virus and Mycoplasma pulmonis (Bhatt and others 1986; Compton and others 1993; NRC 1991; Percy and Barthold 1993) as well as emerging agents such as the recently discovered mouse and rat parvoviruses and Helicobacter… CONTINUE READING
