Blood Collection and Bleeding Amount–Common Laboratory Animals
|Item / Animals||Total Collection/ Adult (ml)a||Per Collection (ml)b||Bleeding Amount(ml)|
- Total Blood Collection equals roughly 6% of its weight.
- Per Collection = 1% of its weight.
Blood production of an animal is around 0.75-1.0ml/Kg/day, hence, 5Kg rabbit can produce 5ml blood per day; if a collection of 50ml for once, such rabbit takes 10 days to renew another 50ml blood.
