Dear Nancy,
We have been using VEGF from Santa Cruz (A-20, sc-152) rabbit antibody successfully on human FFPE tissues (HIER with EDTA9.0, 1:200 overnight 4C, EnVision+ detection). A mamma tumor serves as a good positive control. The data sheet said there is a cross-reaction with other species including rat. 
Hope this helps.

Subject  [Histonet] VEGF in rat xenografts 
Does anyone do VEGF IHC on FFPE sections of rats that have been implanted with human tumor cell lines?  If anyone does and would be willing to share their experiences, I would really appreciate it.
Thanks in advance (and with great hope!),
