This webinar will review veterinary procedures, drug dosages and routes of administration that can be used to sedate, anesthetize and euthanize tropical or pet fish. Sedating or tranquilizing fish prior to handling for physical examinations and diagnostic tests, or surgery makes the process easier. Anesthetizing the fish prior to surgical procedures is essential, and euthanasia with an overdose of anesthetic (oral, injected or in the water) is sometimes necessary and can be quick and painless. This webinar is suitable for veterinarians, vet techs/nurses, vet students, research scientists and aquarists/aquarium husbandry staff.

Dr Nick Saint-Erne DVM, CertAqV (Quality Assurance Veterinarian, PetSmart, Inc.)

Learning Objectives – participants will learn:
1. How to use available anesthetic drugs, anesthetic depth monitoring & post-anesthetic recovery
2. How to construct and use anesthetic equipment and surgical tables, suitable for tropical fish
3. How to euthanize tropical fish using available anesthetic agents, when necessary
