Here's what our website says: "MICRO-TATTOOING RODENTS Permanent identification is essential for proper record keeping and the maintenance of rodent colonies. Micro-tattooing is an alternative to toe-clipping as a method of permanent identification of rodents. This method is safe and easy to administer. Please review the following website for more information regarding the technique: If you are interested in learning more about this technique, please contact Sherri Goss at XXX-XXX-XXXX to set up a training session." The link in the above paragraph is incorrect. Try here: for the machine that's recommended. Sherri's e-mail is slgoss**At_Symbol_Here** and I'm sure she'll be happy to chat with you.
