Publication Date : 11/11/2016
Six dogs of each group following premedication Ketamine and Thiopental sodium were used as induction agents. Immediately after induction, the dogs.were intubated and anaesthesia was maintained with inhalation of Isoflurane for castration and ovariohysterectomy procedures.Clinical and haemato-biochemical effects of ketamine and thiopental as induction agents for isoflurane anaesthesia in dogs were studied. Statistical analysis of the data revealed that the difference in the rectal temperature of the dogs was significant (P < 0.05) among the various time intervals and groups. It also revealed that the Heart and respiratory rates differed significantly when compared among the three time intervals and the two groups. Haematological examination revealed that significant differences in the various parameters like TEC, TLC, Hb, PCV, DLC etc between the two groups and the three intervals, the values were still within the normal physiological limits, thereby rendering them clinically insignificant. AST, ALT, BUN and Serum Creatinine remained within normal limits.
