Shipping pregnant females and litters carries an inherent risk of loss, for which the Animal Resources Centre will not compensate. The following is recommended:
- Pregnant females will be despatched up to E18.
- Animals will not be shipped the same day they are weaned.
- Orders for litters must be placed before they are born to avoid pups being despatched from harem cages with the wrong mother.
- Local deliveries of pups can be sent at 1-3 days of age.
- We recommend despatching pregnant females for interstate delivery of pups, but we will send litters at ≥3 days of age on despatch.
- For despatch with two flights, litters at ≥4 days will be sent.
- The Animal Resources Centre can provide superovulated females for donor eggs only.
