The purpose of this chapter is to provide practical advice for administering anesthetics, analgesics, and euthanasia agents to the most commonly used laboratory animal species. It is not meant to be an exhaustive review of all anesthetic and analgesic protocols used in these species. More detailed information is available in both specialist laboratory animal anesthesia texts, (e.g., Fish et al., 2008; Kohn et al., 1997; Flecknell, 2009), and general veterinary anesthesia texts (e.g., Lumb and Jones, 2007).
