About this course
Do you dread performing rabbit anaesthetics? They
have a reputation for being difficult, stressful and fraught with
complications, with poor recoveries often observed; however this doesn’t
have to be the case.
This course will summarise some top tips for a
smoother rabbit anaesthetic and will offer an overview of techniques
including induction, airway management, maintenance and monitoring
(including the pro’s and con’s of human vs machine) and recovery.
It will also offer a brief re-cap on basic anatomy, physiology and
behaviour and discuss the importance of the holistic approach to
anaesthesia, involving the essential step of looking deeper into the
patient’s health and husbandry directly before and after their
Delegates will have the opportunity to discuss their own current
protocols and case studies as well as exploring the most up to date
recommendations for the different aspects of rabbit anaesthesia.
After successful completion of the course you should feel more confident
about undertaking rabbit anaesthesia and will go on to produce a set of
anaesthesia guidelines for a range of different scenarios that you can
discuss with the rest of your team as well as a pre anaesthetic
checklist that is specifically tailored for rabbits in your practice.
