Avian & Exotics
WVC 91st Annual Conference
Ferrets and Rabbits are extremely different regarding their natural history. They are predator and prey, carnivore and herbivore and without a doubt this has affected their anatomy and physiology. I suggest in this presentation that this difference also affects how these animals handle stress during the presentation to the emergency room and how the work up has to be adjusted to the physiology to the animal in order to be successful.
