Pre congress day – Laboratory Animal Anaesthesia

This day will focus on the practicalities of laboratory animal anaesthesia. We are very fortunate to have assembled a team of internationally recognized experts in the field who will give us the benefit of their years of providing anaesthesia and analgesia for the wide variety of species utilized for research. The legal and ethical aspects of this challenging field will also be covered.
