Orotracheal intubation has been the method of choice for endotracheal intubation in anesthetized rabbits for a number of years. This intubation method in rabbits sometimes present a formidable challenge even to the most experienced veterinary staff member. Rabbits have a unique anatomy which consists of a long, narrow and small oropharynx, large incisors and tongue and the restricted movement of the temperomandibular joint.

During orotracheal intubation with the usage of laryngoscope, it is difficult to visualize the epiglottis due to the coverage of the epiglottis by the rabbit’s tongue during nasal breathing and anatomically small laryngeal opening.

Nasotracheal intubation is currently underutilized in both biomedical research and clinical veterinary medicine. In this poster, we describe and recommend an easier, safe and effective rabbit nasotracheal intubation.
