Anesthetic recovery

6guinea pig

Introduction

  • Recovery from anesthesia is a critical period for small exotic mammals, particularly guinea pigs.
  • In a small animal survey, more than half of all anesthetic-related mortalities occurred in the post-operative period.
  • Therefore, close monitoring, particularly in the first 3 h after ending anesthesia, is recommended.
