With this species, more than any other, supportive care will reduce anaesthetic morbidity and mortality (Flecknell, 2006). ANATOMY AND PHYSIOLOGY Stress Rabbits are a prey species and many different factors cause them stress. The effects are varied but ultimately all detrimental to the veterinary patient that in many cases already has underlying pathology. Disease processes, for example dental pathology or pain, will cause stress (Harcourt-Brown and Baker, 2001). Various aspects of husbandry will affect rabbits.

1997). For these reasons, identification and avoidance of possible stressors (including the provision of analgesia where deemed necessary) will reduce systemic effects. 1). Rabbits’ body weights will vary throughout the day as the gastrointestinal tract contents vary. Rabbits cannot vomit, so do not generally require fasting before anaesthesia. However, some anaesthetists prefer to fast rabbits for 1–2 h. This will reduce the presence of food in the oral cavity that may be inhaled after induction of anaesthesia, and also reduce gastrointestinal contents that may put pressure on the diaphragm or make abdominal surgery more difficult (Harcourt-Brown, 2002a).

All anaesthetised rabbits should receive oxygen supplementation. Where none of the above options are possible or appropriate, a closely fitting facemask can be used if oral access is not required. If a procedure is being performed on the oral cavity, the end of the anaesthetic circuit or a very small facemask can be held over the nares. Masks are unlikely to provide as good a seal as the other techniques, and so should be used with caution when inhalational anaesthetics are being used, as environmental contamination is likely.
