In Reply to: Why are you asking us?.... posted by Rob Carmichael on May 01, 2003 at 07:15:54:

I am admittely a suspicious, untrusting person by nature. It is my specific intention to research this question with people OUTSIDE of the company who have experience with them and the issue of euthanizing rodents BEFORE I contact the company itself. I completely expect that the company is going to tell me exactly what I want to hear. If I take the time to educate myself before I contact them I'll be better prepared to interpret whatever answer they give me. I am not one to allow myself to be excused on the grounds of ignorance.

Aside from that, I also have to admit that I truly don't suspect they are using inhumane methods. I just want to be able to understand, if thier methods are humane, why I notice blood on the animals I receive from them. To this point I have already received several very informative replies that have helped me to understand this phenomenon (associated with the bursting of capillaries during asphyxiation).

I will be asking them, and anyone else who has anything informative to contribute.


:ASK THEM!! It amazes me as to how many questions I see that request information about manufacturers/vendors/etc. when they could just as easily CALL these people to get that information directly. Rodentpro is a legit company and perhaps some of the finest people in the business to deal with. Their quality, customer service and prices are second to none. We have never experienced a single problem with them and knowing the types of people they are, I am sure that their feeder animals do not suffer.

::Is what I want to know. Does anyone know for sure how they put down thier feeder rats? I just got a shipment, which included some guinea pigs. Many of them, rats and pigs alike, looked as if they suffered some degree of trauma, as evidenced by the small amounts of blood I noticed around the noses.
