The Australian mammal fauna is unique when you consider their taxonomy, anatomy, physiology and ecology; from monotremes to marsupials to placental mammals. As a consequence, the methods used to chemically restrain these animals are equally varied.

The talk will cover a brief overview of the taxonomy to contextualise the breadth of species found in Australia and consider some of the unique and significant anatomy and physiological traits which can have an important baring on anaesthesia. We will also discuss the physical restraint required to facilitate anaesthesia, the pre anaesthetic considerations and we will provide information on drug combinations and dose rates and discuss some of the relevant limitations and complications associated with their anaesthesia.
