Abstract

The present paper is aimed to verify the use of glyceryl guaiacolate alone (G1) and associated with levomepromazine and benzodiazepines, of which the flunitrazepam (G2) and midazolam (G3) are used in (10) ten horses for each group, submitted for gelding. The quality of induction and recumbency as well as analgesia was better in the groups that realized the
association of glyceryl guaiacolate with levomepromazine and benzodiazepines (G2 and G3), but the recuperation (standing position) of the latter was double of the first one (G1) and for about 60 minutes. There was no significative alteration of the temperature only with the  glyceryl guaiacolate group, but there was a tendency of reduction of the temperature in the groups that received the association of the glyceryl guaiacolate with levomepromazine and benzodiazepines. The drugs adninistration in the three groups was followed by tachycardia in the first
moments, with normalization in the end. On the other hand was observed bradypnoea and the glyceryl guaiacolate group were distinguished by bigger values of respiratory rate than the other groups. The three anaesthetic procedures showed to be satisfactory, due to the stability of the physiologic parameters and smooth induction and recuperation, while the association of levomepromazine and benzodiazepine with glyceryl  guiacolate made recumbency more effective, as well as a bigger muscle relaxation, sedation and analgesia.
