Abstract:

Twelve dogs of either sex age group of 7-14 years, presented to the college clinic with surgical problems were utilized to study the effect of etomidate and propofol after premedication with atropine sulphate, diazepam and fentanyl. The animals were divided into two groups of six animals each. Etomidate was given intravenously in group I dogs @ 0.3mg/kg b.wt. Propofol @ 6 mg/kg b.wt. intravenously was given in group II dogs. Induction quality was excellent, smooth and attained sternal recumbency rapidly without struggling in all animals in both groups. Recovery from anaesthesia was smooth and excitement free in both groups. Etomidate with atropine, diazepam and fentanyl premedication provided better surgical anaesthesia with smooth induction and rapid, safe and smooth recovery in geriatric dogs.
