Regions Now: Rabbit Anaesthesia - best practice for GP vets
Brought to you by West Midlands
In this instalment of the Regions Now lectures, Molly Varga BVetMed DZoomed MRCVS, Exotics Specialist at Rutland House Referrals will discuss Rabbit Anaesthesia - best practice for GP vets.
This course will cover the key concepts of rabbit anaesthesia from admit to discharge and all points in between. Every aspect is accessible to GP vets, and the emphasis will be placed on drugs and equipment found in most practices. Attendees can expect two short, recorded webinars covering anaesthetic drug options and anaesthetic monitoring as well as an interactive Zoom session where trouble-shooting during the anaesthetic period will be the focus. The aim of this short course is to support GP vets to use their transferrable knowledge and skills in a less familiar species, to encourage more GP vets to safely anaesthetise rabbits routinely so that when the challenging cases arrive, they have built on this knowledge and gained experience to tackle them successfully.
Useful fact about this course- this course will emphasise the teamwork involved in anaesthetising rabbits. Successful outcomes rely on the knowledge and confidence of both the vet and the nursing team- neither can succeed without support from the other.
Intended Learning Outcomes
- To gain an understanding of the physiological differences of rabbits as patients
- To understand how these differences might result in negative anaesthetic outcomes
- To understand how simple and easy interventions can start to improve outcomes
- To understand which drugs, at which doses might be employed to anaesthetise rabbits
- To understand the value of both inter and post operative monitoring and how this will significantly improve overall anaesthetic outcomes
