Fine Tune Your Clinical Technique

Explore LafeberVet's NEW phototutorial article Nasotracheal Intubation in the Rabbit designed for the clinical veterinarian and veterinary nurse.

Intubation is the gold standard for all anesthetized patients. Rabbits can be intubated using either orotracheal or nasotracheal techniques. These methods can be challenging in rabbit patients and both techniques require patience and practice. Nasotracheal intubation may be the preferred approach in situations where maximum access and maneuverability is required in the oral cavity. Nasotracheal intubation is also preferred where an extended recovery is expected.
