The effects of halothane and pentobarbital sodium anaesthesia in implantation and maintenance of pregnancy were compared in the rabbit ovariectomized the day after insemination and given steroid replacement therapy. The result has shown that halothane anaesthesia did not favour the overall process of implantation or foetal development, compared with pentobarbital sodium.
