Blood Volume Calculator for Rodents:

Blood volume can be related to body weight using the experimentally determined equation of Lee and Blaufox; BV = 0.06 X BW+ 0.77. In which blood volume = BV in mL and BW = body weight in grams. The equation was developed for the rat, but is reasonably accurate for mice, rabbits, guinea pigs etc. Original reference Lee, H. B. and Blaufox, M. D. Blood volume in the rat. J Nucl Med. 26:72-76 (1985).
