What Type of Water Should Our Research Animals Drink, and Why?

There are no engineering standards for the drinking water provided to research animals; thus, it is left to each institution's professional judgment to determine the drinking water's overall quality.

This decision is based on a wide variety of factors including species differences and their general health status (e.g., SPF, immunocompromised, genetically modified), quality and conditioning of source water, and multiple means to modify drinking water at an institution before final delivery.

In this session, Robert C. Dysko, DVM, DACLAM, will provide background information on possible water sources as well as present options and recommendations regarding available methods to treat and condition drinking water at an institution.
