Anaesthesia and Analgesia of Exotic Species
The anaesthesia and analgesia of exotic species can be a daunting prospect for any veterinary surgeon, especially as the ownership and expectations of the owners of these, often complex species, increases.
As the field of exotic anaesthesia and analgesia evolves it is down to clinicians to ensure we not only understand the sometimes very different modes of action of medications in exotic species but that we are using the most up-to-date protocols and offering our patients and clients the best possible care both pre and post operatively.
These lectures will aim to take you through the most recent ideas on anaesthetising and managing the pain in a range of exotic species including small mammals, reptiles, birds and aquatic species. Ensuring you are able to offer the best possible service to these patients, whilst giving you more confidence tackling these often more challenging anaesthetics.
Topics to be covered:
- Pre-operative veterinary considerations in exotic species
- Anaesthesia and analgesia of rabbits, rodents, reptiles, birds and aquatic species
- An update on protocols for pre and post op periods
