Keywords:Midazolam, Anaesthesia of dogs, Cardiovascular system, Levomepromazine
AbstractExperiments were performed on ten mongrel dogs with 10-18 kg body weight. They received levomepromazine 1.0 mg/kg body weight, I.V. as premedication, and 15 minutes later, midazolam was given in dosage of 2.0 mg/kg body weight intravenously. The result showed moderat increase on respiratory rate and decrease heart rate after 15 minutes and increase heart rate after 30 minutes. Mean and sistolic arterial pressure decreased significantly (p<0.05) but without clinical importance, remained in the physiologic range. Hipnosis duration was less than 20 minutes and at 30 minutes the dogs awaked and they tried to walk.
