Animal Anaesthesia

Here is the procedure I used to anaesthetize the Rats before operation.
A mixture of 50 mg/kg body-weight of Ketamine HCl (Ketaset; Fort Dodge Animal Health, Fort Dodge, Iowa) and 10 mg/kg of Xylazine (Rompun, Bayer Germany) was prepared freshly under sterile conditions.
The mixture was injected interperitonealy.
