The effect of xylazine epidural anaesthesia on blood gas and acid-base parameters in rams

British Veterinary Journal 151(5): 579-585

The effect of xylazine epidural anaesthesia on blood gas and acid-base parameters in rams

The blood gas and acid-base effects of epidural xylazine were studied in rams. Xylazine at a dose of 0.4 mg kg-1 led to a metabolic alkalosis with a significant increase of pH, plasma bicarbonate and base excess and respiratory depression. Epidural administration of xylazine provided prolonged and very effective analgesia during abdominal and hindlimb surgery in rams.
