The monitoring of body weight during a chronic study is required to adjust the daily dosing of any compound administration. Moreover, body weight evolution could give useful information about health status following a surgical intervention or about the evolution of a specific pathology like obesity / metabolic syndrome / diabetes.
Body weight monitoring can be performed at different frequencies according to the client’s needs: from once during an entire study to several times-a-day, and is performed on the same dedicated weighing device for all the animals from the same study.
