    Abstract

    Laboratory rats and mice are the most used animal species in scientific research, but still having a lot of information available about them, there are many places in Latin America where there is a clear need to reinforce concepts and to update work methodologies used to work with these animals, always prioritizing the animal welfare, good and valid results in research and personnel safety.This presentation will review the biological characteristics and current recommendations regarding the treatment and proper management of these animal species in the animal facilities.
