In this interactive virtual workshop we will present practical guidelines on anesthesia & analgesia in rodents  that you can use in your day-to-day work:

  • Common anesthetic protocols with their advantages & disadvantages, and how to choose the appropriate protocol for your research
  • How to recognize pain with practical examples
  • Stepwise approach to analgesia and how to determine the most appropriate treatment
  • Peri-operative care of rodents



The workshop will be interactive with polls and room for discussion and exchange of information. The presentation will be in English. The presentation slides will be made available beforehand.
