Cardiac glycosides are frequently administered to laboratory animals for research purposes. The effects achieved depend not only upon the particular glycoside and dose administered, but also upon an entire array of variables from the species of animal to the temperature of the animal housing facility. We review a number of these factors and their influence upon the effects achieved by the administration of cardiac glycosides to laboratory animals.
