INTRODUCTION The term “injectable anesthetic,” as applied to this chapter covers a broad range of substances with varied effects. The use of injectable anesthetics in laboratory animals is preferred by many for a variety of reasons: ease of administration, a widely available database supporting the use in laboratory animals, fewer specialized equipment needs, avoidance of endotracheal intubation, and fewer potential occupational health concerns for laboratory workers (Fish, 1997).

Thiobarbiturates replace this oxygen atom with a sulfur atom, which confers greater lipid solubility. Generally speaking, a substitution such as sulfuration that increases lipid solubility is associated with greater hypnotic potency and more rapid onset, but shorter duration of action. Addition of a methyl group to the nitrogen atom of the barbituric acid ring, as with oxybarbiturate methohexital, also results in a compound with a short duration of action. Classification of barbiturates as long, short, and ultrashort acting is no longer recommended, as it suggests that drug action ends abruptly after specified time periods; residual plasma concentrations and drug effects persist for several hours, even following anesthetic induction with “ultra-short acting” barbiturates (Stoelting and Hillier, 2006).
