|Comment||Hi Tamara, Thanks for your response! You are correct exercise should be healthier for the vessels in general, however the primary stimulus for adaptation is shear stress, so I have to find out if these vessels receive increased blood flow during exercise. So far I have not been able to locate a source dealing specifically with adipose tissue blood flow during exercise. Usually researchers are more interested in skeletal muscle blood flow during the exercise but those references are not able to really answer the question I am interested. As far as anesthesia, I think the loss in body temperature is due to lowered whole body metabolism as the muscles are not moving, heart rate is lowered, etc. I appreciate the reference and I will update you if I find another good source|
I can answer questions regarding mice as pets, mouse behavior, color and coat genetics, breeding techniques, and general health questions. I can help with caging and setup, nutrition, social issues, and what to do in most mouse emergencies (such as unplanned litters, injuries, fighting, etc.). I can also assist with questions pertaining to orphaned mouse pups, weaning litters, and questions of mating and birthing. I cannot answer questions about exotic or wild varieties of mice such as spiny or pygmy mice. *****FOR EMERGENCIES, anything requiring immediate medical intervention, PLEASE take your mouse to a professional veterinarian or wildlife rehabilitator who works with mice as soon as possible!

I have enjoyed the companionship of mice nonstop since 2004, and spent a year caring for them in a lab where I learned a great deal about their breeding, social needs, and health. I spent a few years breeding them, specifically working with albinos, marked mice, angora mice, and satins. My education never stopped - I am learning something new every day from current and well-established research thanks to the wonderful folks at the Jackson Laboratory, as well as from my wonderful mousey friends online. I also love learning from my terrific questioners here on AllExperts - you folks keep my passion for these amazing animals alive and well!
