Prepping a Rabbit for Surgery
Dr. Laurie Hess and the staff of the Veterinary Center for Birds & Exotics, an AAHA-accredited referral practice in Bedford Hills, NY, prepare Pebbles, the rabbit, for a dental surgery. They place a tube in his airway so that they can breathe for Pebbles and monitor his anesthesia. Viewers are able to see the cardiac monitor that the staff uses for exotic pets, as Dr. Hess explains how to read what is on the screen.
