Abstract:

The physiological and hemato-biochemical changes were recorded at 15, 30, and 60 minutes after immobilization with XZT (group A) and DexMZT (group B) in six sloth bears of each group. Significant physiological difference in heart rate between the groups at 30 minutes was observed which could be due to α 2 agonist mediated biphasic cardiovascular response causing bradycardia. Significant decrease in hemoglobin concentration at 30 minutes in group B could be attributed to α 2 agonist influencing shifting of fluids from extracellular to intracellular compartments. Significant difference in neutrophil count can be attributed to DexM showing very less stress response. No significant changes were observed in biochemical values.
