A typical day would be going in get suited up in uniform,hat,mask and gloves enter into area and manually water and feed about 1000 cages of mice I will do that twice a week.A day of weaning about 700+ cages of mice, a day of littercounting the same sections weaned ,I have 3 different strains of mice that i do this with.We have two 15-30 min breaks each day you must do your paperwork on half your break I have to Retire out amounts of cages each week set back up new cages. Clean all 700+ cages each week with little to no over time in doing it all.I have also work in the surgery department where I filled surgery orders for customers for rats and mice.I've worked in a rat department weighing stock getting up orders, timed pregs,tail bleeding,littercounting,weaning,breed and care for the animals.But through all of what I do the best part is leaving to go home each day sad but true. The people you work with make a huge difference in the work place.
