Abstract:
Twelve healthy mongrel dogs were included in the study and divided into two equal groups. All the patients were sedated with xylazine at 2 mg/kg b.wt. Group A was induced with propofol @4 mg/kg and Group B with Ketofol (1:1) @ 4 mg/kg by intravenous bolus administration. Maintenance was carried out by constant infusion of anaesthetic drugs at 6 mg/kg/hr at 5 ml/kg/hr flow rate in both the groups. Anaesthesia was maintained with fluid bag technique. Depth of anaesthesia was satisfactory in both the groups however dogs from Group A showed longer recovery time. Heart rate, rectal temperature and respiratory rate showed statistical difference (p< 0.05) between the groups but the values were within normal limits. On the basis of clinical and physiological observations, combination of ketamine-propofol-butorphanol was found to be satisfactory for maintenance of anaesthesia in canines.
