Abstract

Although guinea pigs (Cavia porcellus) have been used in research for more than a century and remain the most prevalent USDA-covered species, little has been elucidated regarding the recognition of clinical pain or analgesic efficacy in this species. We sought to assess pain in guinea pigs by using ...

Abstract

Current use of analgesics to control procedure-related pain in laboratory rodents is unacceptably low. Almost all currently available analgesics were developed in small rodents, prior to use in man, so that safety and efficacy data in laboratory assays are available. Greater use of analgesics would ...
