Anaesthesia & Analgesia Göttingen Minipigs

Adrian Zeltner

Ellegaard Göttingen Minipigs can easily be anaesthetised for several hours without a higher risk of complications. As they are microbiologically defined, with the absence of certain pathogens, the risk of respiratory arrest and cardiovascular failure is decreased. Furthermore, the absence of the halothane gene prevents the development of malignant hyperthermia.
