      Anesthesia and Analgesia in Reptiles

      Presenter: Javier Nevarez, DVM, PhD, DACZM, DECZM (Herpetology)
      September 25, 2016 - 4 pm EDT (UTC-4)

      The study of anesthesia and analgesia in reptiles has significantly expanded and there is readily available information in the literature to help make sound clinical decisions for these patients. While reptiles are often thought of as stoic animals that do not show many behavioral changes, this is a misconception and anyone working with them should become familiar with the signs of pain and discomfort. It is also important to remember that the analgesic effect provided by general anesthesia is short lived, up to the point of recovery, and analgesic protocols must be instituted in all case when painful stimuli is unavoidable. We must think of anesthesia and analgesia as being two different components of one modality, both being essential for its success.
