Abstract: A technique for the surgical removal of a kidney from small rodents is presented. It involves making two incisions, tying off the ureter and the renal blood vessels, removing the kidney, and stitching the incisions. Under laboratory conditions virtually all animals recuperated. A field test resulted in a 78% recovery rate for treated animals compared with their controls. The technique is simple, inexpensive, and quick making it a potentially useful tool in many areas including paternity studies and gene flow studies.
