Calcium-oxalate (CaOx) stone disease is the most-common human urinarystone disease. Spontaneous CaOx urolithiasis is very rare in rats. However, because the rat is one of the most-easily-available and commonly-used laboratory animals, a number of experimental models have been developed for the study of CaOx urolithiasis.
