Eavaluation of haemato-biochemical effects of dorsolumbar epidural xylazine-lignocaine anaesthesia in Cattle

Author(s): Lokhande DS and VD Aher
Abstract: The study was conducted on 14 cattle to evaluate effects of xylazine-lignocaine dorsolumbar epidural anaesthesia on haemato-biochemical parameters. Animals divided in two groups A and B. Cattle in group A, received mixed anesthetic consisting of xylazine hydrochloride @ 0.025 mg/kg and lignocaine hydrochloride @ 0.1 mg/kg whereas, in group B, received mixed anesthetic consisting of xylazine hydrochloride @ 0.025 mg/kg and lignocaine hydrochloride @ 0.2 mg/kg by dorsolumbar epidural anaesthesia. The haematological parameters like Hb, PCV, TEC, TLC and lymphocyte count decreased significantly except neutrophil in both the groups during anaesthesia. Eosinophil count and monocyte count altered non-significantly during anaesthesia in both group A and group B. Biochemical parameters like ALT, AST, BUN and serum creatinine increased significantly during anaesthesia in both the groups. The study illustrated that alterations in the haemato-biochemical parameters were transient during anaesthesia and values were returned to base level 24 h after anaesthesia.
