    Default Cancers in rodents

    Incidents of cancers have been found to commonly occur in rats.

    To a lesser degree they have been found to occur in tree squirrels cared for in captivity, this mostly associated with obesity, but also with infections.

    This procedure to remove a large cancerous growth from the intestines of a rat, and resection the bowel, was successfully accomplished.

    Rather amazing to see this done on such a small animal, yet with todays technology it is now possible. Warning this file contains photos of graphic content!

    I noticed they were very specific about the amount of Isoflurane v O2 used for induction and maintenance during diagnostics. This info would be valuable for anyone working with a vet who is doing this for the first time with a rodent.

    Thanks for sharing!

    Liver cancer in notably has the highest incidence in rats and mice of all other organs of the body.

    In prairie dogs, a virus has been found to promote liver cancer.

    'Long term' regular consumption of Soy stresses the pancreas which can lead to the development of pancreatic cancer.
