A double helping - we always feel that we'd like more time to cover a wide variety of rabbit anaesthetic subjects - and now we can!
Rabbits have one of the highest published anaesthetic death rates of any companion animal species. Rabbit anaesthesia is one of our most requested topics. We've now booked a new 2 day course to cover a huge range of anaesthetic subjects. Of course we're concentrating on rabbits (what else?) - but everything we talk about is applicable to all companion animal anaesthesia.
Course dates - 19th and 20th October 2019
Venue - Hilton Garden Inn, Luton North, accessible from Luton airport and major motorways. Cost includes your CPD, breakfast and lunch and your accomodation! Car parking is available at an additional £5 per day at the hotel, evening meals are extra.
We're going to give you a mix of lectures from internationally recognised anaesthetists and exotics experts, opinions from GP rabbit vets, practical training on skills such as blood pressure monitoring, airway management and monitoring, small group teaching & problem solving. You'll be working in small and large groups and will have the opportunity to mix and mingle with fellow delegates and specialists, to pick up and share good ideas.
Amongst other things we will be covering:
- Understanding rabbits to get them in the best possible health for anaesthesia; some new thoughts on nutrition and husbandry.
- Hospital care before and after anaesthesia.
- Manual and electronic anaesthesia monitoring
- Blood pressure monitoring in rabbits
- How to apply high quality companion animal anaesthesia and analgesia to rabbits.
- Drug combinations for different situations including a section on Alfaxan - the licenced drug for rabbit anaesthesia.
- Practical anaesthetic techniques: v-gel placement, safe endotracheal intubation, intravenous cannulation, blood pressure measurement
- Top tips from recognised experts
