Abstract

Performing diagnostic procedures and stabilizing critically ill rabbits require knowledge of their general temperament as well as proper restraint, diagnostic, and supportive care techniques. Part I of this two-part presentation reviewed recommendations for clinical assessment, diagnostic differentials, and initial treatment plans. Many techniques used to manage critically ill dogs and cats can be adapted to minimize stress in critically ill rabbits. Part II provides general guidelines for handling hospitalized rabbits and describes such diagnostic and therapeutic techniques as venipuncture, radiography, fluid therapy, nutritional support, analgesia, and intubation.
