Ruminants must be held off feed (not water) for at least 24 h before anesthesia, and oro-tracheal intubation during general anesthesia is mandatory. Occasionally an animal may have a subclinical respiratory infection with compromise to the lungs that is exacerbated by the stress of anesthesia and surgery, and these losses are understandable. Animals in poor health should be screened and not be used if they appear to be under anesthetic risk. With the veterinary anesthetic drugs, delivery systems, and monitoring equipment currently available, loss of an animals while under general anesthesia is generally due to inexperience and is largely inexcusable.

A dedicated small animal x-ray instrument like the XPert 80 (Kubtek, Milford CT) with a 50 kV, 1 mA source and digital capability is best suited to this task. Imaging for longitudinal studies is performed on mice lightly anesthetized for immobilization and at a magnification of up to 5× depending on the region of interest (ROI). This provides an electronic record of the gross skeletal phenotype for the measurement of skeletal elements, most commonly the femur, tibia, vertebra, and skull. To avoid difficulties associated with the transfer of animals in and out of a barrier facility any instrument to be used on live animals is best placed inside the barrier.
