It was shown that the effects of halothane anaesthesia in the dromedary are similar to those of large domestic ruminants. As a general rule the equipment and techniques used for adult cattle may also be used in the dromedary. Endotracheal intubation may be more difficult in camels because of their narrow oral cavities. Involuntary regurgitation is a particular hazard in dromedaries and every effort should be made to avoid this potentially life threatening complication.
