The Curvet rat training model is a purposely designed training aid to provide the skills required for humane and ethical handling and procedural competencies, without the need to use a live animal.

The Curvet rat model is British made using a material that does not include latex, but gives a unique sensitivity of a living specimen. This model is ideal for both veterinary and biomedical establishments and has several unique features such as:

  • Realistic dermatological skin, suitable for:
  • Injections by most conventional routes
  • Micro-chipping identification
  • Handling and restraint (including the ability to scruff if required)
  • The deliberate absence of fur enables this model to be cleaned and sanitised with an appropriate chemical sterilant
  • Head and spinal movement, including rear limbs
  • Suitable for oral administration
  • Lateral and ventral head movement
  • Hard palate with incisors
  • Realistic removable tail with two lateral tail veins ideal for:
  • Blood sampling
  • Intravenous administration
  • Insertion of a flexible catheter (Angiocath)
  • Tail has a self sealing material hence long life span
  • Additional tails can be purchased separately

Artificial realistic non-toxic blood available

Realistic features such as:

  • Eyes
  • Hard Palate with incisors
  • Pink extremities
  • Fore and rear limbs
  • Anus and rectum with limited aperture for thermoregulation monitoring i.e. clinical or digital thermometer
  • Adult rat size and weight approximately 300g

This model is NOT a toy, but a well thought out training aid to replace the use of a live animal to gain manual skill and competence, thus avoiding stress to both animal and handler.
