Anesthetic preparation

Prior to any other preparations for anesthesia the owner should be questioned about the rabbit's husbandry and medical history, followed by a thorough physical examination.

In a practical situation, rabbits with unremarkable medical history and physical exam, ie rabbits that are apparently healthy, may not need radiographs or bloodwork unless the veterinarian thinks otherwise. However, information on weight, gut sounds, rectal temperature, respiratory rate and heart rate should be collected from all rabbits.
