Emergency and critical care of reptiles and amphibians is challenging, not only due to the diversity of species that can present, but also due to a lack of evidenced based analgesia protocols, and also fluid resuscitation is these animals is critically important, but the choice of fluids and methods of delivery are very different to that of mammals. In this lecture we will focus on these two key areas and look at the limited evidence we have to use to guide our nursing care plans for these rewarding cases.
