Anaesthesia of Ruminants

Veterinary anesthesia is anesthesia performed on animals (excluding humans) by a veterinarian. Anesthesia is used for a wider range of circumstances in animals than in people, due to animals’ inability to cooperate with certain diagnostic or therapeutic procedures. Veterinary anesthesia includes anesthesia of the major species: dogs, cats, horses, cattle, sheep, goats, and pigs, as well as all other animals requiring veterinary care such as birds, pocket pets, and wildlife.
