The primary objectives of this report are to present information concerning the nutritional requirements of several commonly used laboratory animal species (i.e. mouse, rat, hamster, guinea pig, rabbit, and dog) and to discuss various aspects of the problem of contamination of laboratory animal feeds. In addition, this document discusses the different types of laboratory animal diets (e.g. open versus closed formula), the ingredients used in these diets, the interaction of dietary components, and the public comments received respective to the EPA proposed guidelines for the nutrient composition of laboratory animal diets. Much of the data are presented in tabular form.
