It is essential, ethically and legally, to reduce the perception of pain and minimize the discomfort felt by the animal subjected to experimental surgery. A range of anesthetic agents is available to obtain adequate analgesia, and the appropriate choice depends on the duration of the surgical procedure to be performed. In some cases, sedation, muscle relaxation, and inhibition of sympathetic or parasympathetic reflexes would be needed.
