Evaluation of a novel rodenticide: acute sub-lethal effects of a methaemoglobin-inducing agent
Contributor(s):: Quy, R. J., Gibson, T. J., Lambert, M. S., Eason, C. T., Gregory, N. G.
In a series of experiments the welfare of para-aminovalerophenone (PAVP) sub-lethally poisoned rats ( Rattus norvegicus) was assessed. The experiments: (i) examined the acute methaemoglobin (MetHb) profile over time; (ii) refined the LD50 estimate for PAVP in adult female rats; (iii) developed...

Contributor(s):: Knubel, B. F. R., Panter, K. E., Provenza, F. D.
