The effect of chlorpromazine HCL associated to ketamine HCL in dogs
Keywords:Chlorpromazine, Ketamine, Anaesthesia of dogs
The aim of this work was to evaluate the effect of chlorpromazine HCL associated to ketamine HCL on body temperature, heart rate, respiratory frequency, blood gases, glucose levels and eletrocardiography. To ten mongrel dogs, 17 kg average weight was administered 1 mg/kg, chlorpromazine HCL and 15 mg/kg ketamine HCL mixed in a same syringe and administered into the thigh muscles. The results did not show significant differences among the different parameters but the eletrocardiography did show frequently depression and elevation of the ST segment. Based on behavior and statistical results, the association of both drugs showed to be effective and, therefore, can be used safely in dogs, except those with cardiac diseases.
