    I have been a practicing veterinarian for over 30 years and I have never used carbon dioxide as an anesthetic agent. Nor have I even heard of it being done.

    I would never presume to question a practicing vet but isn't carbon dioxide used as an anesthetic for venomous spiders for milking?

    Uh, ick, uh but then what? Is the spider dead or out back in the sand to recover from its wounds?

    I will yield to the spider people. I'm a small animal orthopedic surgeon and really don't do a lot of spider medicine.:wink:

    In my lab days, I used CO2 to euthanize my rats.
