Abstract:
The present study was carried out on twelve dogs to study the clinical efficacy of two anesthetic protocols in which Butorphanol, Acepromazine and Glycopyrrolate (BAG) is used as preanesthetic agent. In the dogs of group I, anaesthesia was induced by Diazepam and Ketamine hydrochloride and in group II with Midazolam and Ketamine. Following induction, anaesthesia was maintained with Propofol. The anaesthetic effects like induction, duration and recovery time were recorded. In conclusion BAG proved to be an effective premedicant combination. BAG provided excellent analgesic, sedative and antisialogauge effects during surgical procedures. Midazolam and Ketamine combination acted as a superior induction agent to the combination of Diazepam-Ketamine. Recovery was rapid, smooth and uneventful in Diazepam-Ketamine induction and Propofol maintenance in comparison to Midazolam-Ketamine induction and Propofol maintenance.
