Abstract:

The study was carried out in full term pregnant dogs with history of dystocia presented to the Veterinary Clinical Complex, Namakkal. The dogs with primary and secondary dystocia were treated with medical management. Clinical, Ultrasound, radiographic, vaginal examinations were carried out and emergency caesarean section was planned in the dogs which did not deliver after medical management. Dogs were divided into group I and II with 6 animals in each group. Group I dogs were premedicated with dexmedetomidine, induced with propofol and maintained under isoflurane inhalation anaesthesia. Group II dogs were directly induced with propofol without premedication. The neonates born from caesarean section were evaluated with Apgar score.
