I just wanted to share a surgery that I helped with a couple of months ago. Gimpy the Tree Frog is doing great and is getting around his enclosure very well on only 3 legs!
Here we are administering MS222 to Gimpy the tree frog in his personal induction chamber to perform a leg amputation. We submerged him in distilled water mixed with the anesthetic in a Ziploc bag until he was anesthetized.
(This is me!!) Saranna Doheny getting ready to recover Gimpy from surgery. During the surgery Saranna monitored his heart beat and administered more MS222 mixed with water to keep him successfully under anesthesia.
To wake him up from surgery, we flushed warm water over his body to rinse away the anesthetic. Once he started to blink, he was placed back into his enclosure to finish waking up on his own. He was moving around the enclosure 2 hours after surgery.
