What time is this in my time zone?

Amphibians’ popularity as pets has increased significantly over the past decade. They also are frequently managed in zoological and research collections, and wild amphibians can present to wildlife rehabilitation facilities. Similar to other vertebrate species, sedation or anesthesia may be required for various diagnostic, clinical, and surgical interventions. An understanding of clinically relevant anatomy and physiology, a pre-anesthetic protocol, the selection of appropriate anesthetic drugs to safely conduct a desired procedure, appropriate anesthetic monitoring, and post-anesthetic planning all are key to successfully managing the amphibian patient through an anesthetic event.
