Haemato-biochemical response to detomidine-propofol combination in atropinized goats
MS Maravi, Rukmani Dewangan, SK Tiwari and R Sharda
The study was conducted to evaluate the effect on various haemato-biochemical parameters in response to detomidine-propofol anaesthesia in six healthy non-descript goats of either sex weighing between 20-25 kg. Detomidine (15 µg/kg I/M) was given 10 min. later followed by propofol (5mg/kg I/V) anaesthesia. Prior to this atropine sulphate (0.04 mg/kg I/M) was injected. There was non-significant decrease in Hb and PCV. There was significant increase in neutrophils with significant decrease in lymphocyte. There was significant increase in serum glucose level with slight alternation in serum urea, creatinine, AST and ALT. It is concluded that detomidine-propofol combination produced no deleterious effect on vital organs and changes remained within physiological limits, thus can be safely used in atropinized goats.
