Veterinary anaesthesia for African wildlife
Wildlife research has historically focussed on capture and immobilisation of wild animals for short periods. However, with the increasing value of individual wild animals, the ability to anaesthetise animals for longer periods of time is becoming more relevant. A more clear understanding of the species-specific physiological and pharmacological responses of to the drugs used for chemical capture and anaesthesia are crucial.
