Abstract:
The study was conducted in 12 clinical cases presented to TVCC, Bidar. Twelve animals were randomly divided into two groups viz., Group-I and Group-II consisting of six animals in each group. Group-I animals received xylazine (0.08 mg/kg) intravenously, animals were then restrained in lateral recumbency and anaesthesia was induced by administering propofol (3mg/kg) intravenously. In the Group-II animals midazolam (0.4mg/kg) was administered intravenously, animals were then restrained in lateral recumbency and anaesthesia was induced by administering propofol (3mg/kg) intravenously. Maintenance of anaesthesia was done under isoflurane in both groups. Anaesthetic combinations were compared by clinical and physiological parameters. The induction and recovery were smooth and uneventful in both groups. Induction was quicker in Group- I animals. Recovery, sternal recumbancy time was quicker in Group- II. Excellent analgesia and moderate to extensive salivation was observed in both the groups. Physiological parameters like heart rate, respiratory rate, rectal temperature, fluctuated within the normal limits. Non-significant bradycardia in group- I.Intermittent apnoea was observed in all animals, frequency was higher in Group-I. Both the anaesthetic protocols in the present study provided satisfactory surgical plane of anaesthesia in cattle.
