Abstract

If a rabbit is ill or will be undergoing certain types of surgery, it may need to be fed using a nasogastric tube. Nasogastric intubation is easy and is an effective means of delivering nutrition and fluids when other feeding methods are not feasible. This column describes how to place a nasogastric tube in a rabbit.
