Rabbit anatomy refresher


This 2.5 hour practical class is ideal for veterinarians who wish to brush up on their lagomorph clinical anatomy and review relevant anatomical structures for clinical practice. Aimed at qualified veterinary surgeons and veterinary students who feel they would like a refresher course in rabbit anatomy, this wetlab will take you through rabbit specific anatomical features, with a focus on clinically relevant anatomy. This session will offer you the chance to review rabbit dentition, practice incisor removal and dental nerve blocks and cannulation of the nasolacrimal duct. Thoracic and abdominal anatomical features specific to the rabbit will also be identified and their clinical relevance discussed during the class, including identification of the sacculus rotundus and appendix and revision of neutering techniques and abdominal wall closure.

By the end of this practical you should be able to:

1. Describe normal rabbit dentition, perform dental nerve blocks and carry out extraction of the incisor teeth of rabbits.

2. Carry out and describe nasolacrimal duct cannulation.

3. Be confident with the normal thoracic and abdominal anatomy of the rabbit and describe and perform neutering techniques and abdominal wall closure in the rabbit
