This chapter is organized around a construct of hydromineral homeostasis and focuses on water and mineral consumption in rats. It provides a brief overview of the main body fluid compartments, of how fluids are gained and lost by those compartments, and of relevant neural and hormonal signals. The test environment and sodium preference and appetite are also discussed.

Keywords:   laboratory rats, hydromineral homeostasis, water consumption, mineral consumption, sodium preference
