Roughly normal saline - 0.9% or approx 150 mM.

are you sure?
I have read that mice eat more salt than that of human.
and about Rabbit, they are Coprophagia, that is they eat their own feces to gain enough vitamin 12 and etc.
So I think that thay have more NaCl concentration in their blood.

0.9% or approx 150 mM is for human blood.

From the Merck veterinary manual:

Therapy for common viral infections is generally supportive as there are no specific treatments. Dehydration may require isotonic fluid therapy (0.9% saline or 5% dextrose). Animals not drinking water orally require 40-80 mL fluids/kg/day, administered SC or IP in divided doses 3-4 times per day (eg, 1-2 mL/day for a 25 g mouse or 16-32 mL/day for a 400 g rat).


You also culture cell lines such as NIH3T3 in DMEM and similar mediums, which all have the same base of normal saline
