Due to Health Regulations We Cannot Accept Any Returns or Exchanges on Rodent Cages
It is NOT surprising that the high quality components of our rodent racks exceed the stringent guidelines of commercial rodent breeding facilities.
What IS surprising is that our rodent racks are HALF the price of the competition!
