Critically ill rabbits can be challenging patients, especially because they can easily become stressed. Although the principles behind emergency and critical care medicine are the same for all mammals, the presenting signs and diagnostic differentials differ. This article describes the common presenting signs for rabbits in critical condition and discusses some diagnostic procedures and therapeutic measures. Part II will address specific therapeutic techniques, pain abatement, and nutritional support.
