Exotic animal anaesthesia in first opinion practice should not be as high risk/feared as owners, or the profession, perceives. This course will identify what areas need to be considered, what occult underlying pathology may be present, what anatomical and physiological aspects need to be understood and what can be done to help identify, and address these aspects in order to reduce the risks of anaesthesia. Species covered will include rabbits, small mammals, reptiles, birds and fish.

Whilst the day is lecture based, the approach will be very much based on practical aspects that can be applied, whilst also illustrating the significant advantages/what can be achieved with minimal investment in equipment, for both surgeon and nursing team alike.

The day will enable you to return to your practice and utilise the skills learnt to anaesthetise less familiar species with confidence.

The five key things you will learn from this course are:

  • Practical tips and skills to improve anaesthesia in rabbits
  • Practical tips and skills to improve anaesthesia in small mammals
  • Practical tips and skills to improve anaesthesia in birds
  • Practical tips and skills to improve anaesthesia in reptiles
  • How not to be scared by exotic anaesthesia
