Because of public and political opinion, rising costs, and regulations, the use of some types of laboratory animals has been limited. As a result, small mammals - in particular, white rats - have become an acceptable alternative to canines for use in toxicological testing. In this report, a method is described by which unanesthetized and comfortably restrained rats are exposed by inhalation to yield fairly complete pulmonary information.
