The present study was conducted on 12 dogs presented to TVCC, PGIVAS, Akola for ovariohysterectomy. These dogs were divided in two groups of six animals each. Dogs in both the groups were pre-medicated with Dexmedetomidine @ 20 mcg/kg BW, Butorphanol @ 0.2 mg/kg BW and induction was carried out with Ketamine @ 4 mg/kg BW. Dogs in group A and group B were maintained on isoflurane and sevoflurane respectively. Ovariohysterectomy was done with routine method. Quality of induction was good in both the groups with the exception of excellent in one case of group B. Quality of maintenance was good in all animals of group A. In group B, quality of maintenance was excellent in three cases and good in three cases. Time to recovery was lower in sevoflurane group. The quality of recovery from anaesthesia was graded to be good in all the cases of group A. In group B quality of recovery was graded to be good in two cases whereas it was excellent in four cases. It was concluded that the recovery characteristics of sevoflurane anaesthesia were superior to that of isoflurane anaesthesia.
