Rabbit anaesthesia has a bad reputation for being difficult, stressful and often going wrong however with the right knowledge this no longer has to be the case! The aim of this course is to give delegates the up to date knowledge & confidence to make safer and more appropriate choices when planning and undertaking rabbit anaesthesia.

This highly interactive one-day course will cover top tips for a smoother GA and will look closer at airway management techniques including positioning, intubation and monitoring options. It will also discuss the holistic approach to anaesthesia, which involves looking deeper into the patient’s health and husbandry directly before and after anaesthesia. A recap of anatomy, physiology and behaviour will allow delegates to understand how rabbits are different to cats and dogs and why anaesthesia needs to be specifically tailored for this species to ensure success.

Practical workshops using bespoke teaching models will allow a rare hands on learning experience at endotracheal tube placement and intravenous cannula placement.

Topics to be covered include:

  • Implications of anatomy, physiology, husbandry and behaviour
  • Top tips for smoother GA
  • Intubation and airway management (including practical workshop on endotracheal tube placement)
  • Options for monitoring
  • Emergency care
  • Benefits of stress reduction – at home and in clinic
  • Practical hospitalisation considerations
