I've been hearing exactly that from several people. Until now I had no idea that CO2 asphyxiation could or would cause any type of bleeding. I'm happy to know now that the blood I noticed is attributable to that and not some other methods I had suspected.

Thanks again,

:Sometimes CO2 can cause nasal membrane rupture as well as cell rupture in the ear canal. Bleeding through the nose or ears is not uncommon. I use CO2 and have observed this on several ocassions. Animals that have been frozen and appear clean when packaged may also show evidence of bleeding when thawed. :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.

::If anyone has any information I'd very much appreciate knowing. I want to be sure that I'm only buying from a company that humanely puts down thier feeder animals.

::Thanks,
