Abstract

Compared to other laboratory animals, little is known about the use of anesthetics in birds, potentially resulting in the use of improper dosing regimens. The authors compared two commonly used ketamine combinations with isoflurane and concluded that the injectable doses were ineffective for induction of surgical anesthesia in chickens.
