In this talk I aim to discuss the importance of hospitalisation of prey and predictor species such as rabbits and other small mammals, that are commonly and sometimes less commonly seen in practice. Taking into consideration waiting areas, consultation rooms, pre and post surgical hospitalisation areas.
Including the importance of environmental and social enrichment for different species plus ward management and ward routine.
