Mice are usually housed in either open-topped or individually ventilated (IVC) “shoebox” cages. These cages are usually constructed from plastic and have a metal lid which houses the food pellets and a water bottle. Some caging systems have automatic watering devices. Both food and water are generally provided ad-lib. Animals are usually transferred to a similar, cleaned and disinfected or sterilised cage on a regular basis.
