Abstract:

The study was conducted on six healthy non-descript goats of either sex weighing 20-25 kg by giving atropine sulphate (0.04 mg/kg I/M) followed by detomidine (15 µg/kg I/M) and 10 min. later followed by induction of anaesthesia with propofol (5mg/kg I/V). There was decrease in spontaneous activity with marked sedation as well as lowering of head after detomidine administration in all the animals. After administration of propofol, there was rapid and smooth induction of anaesthesia (0.46±0.51 min). Transient apnoea was observed immediately after induction with propofol which lasted for 40-50 seconds. This was followed by loss of swallowing reflex, corneal, palpebral and conjunctival reflexes were abolished within 3 min and remained so throughout the anaesthetic period. The anal pinch and pedal reflexes were also fully abolished. Muscle relaxation was excellent. Complete analgesia at fetlock, base of tail, abdomen, ribs and base of horn was observed. The duration of anaesthesia was 52.50 ± 8.44 min and complete recovery which was smooth with no excitement occured within 91.66±14.24min. There was non-significant decrease in the rectal temperature. Heart and respiration rate significantly decreased upto 60 min. after detomidine-propofol administration. It can be concluded that detomidine-propofol anaesthesia may be safely used for inducing longer duration of anaesthesia in goats.
