Recent work has shown that Cys-loop receptors are present on immune cells, but their physiological roles and the effects of drugs that modify their(More)

OBJECTIVES Intra-operative, gastro-oesophageal reflux may be associated with post-anaesthestic complications such as oesophagitis and oesophageal stricture in dogs. The aim of this study was to investigate the effect of preoperative administration of omeprazole, a proton pump inhibitor, on oesophageal pH in anaesthetised dogs. METHODS Forty-seven dogs(More)
OBJECTIVE To evaluate spinal (intrathecal) anaesthesia (SA) in addition to general anaesthesia in dogs, and report the incidence of side effects and cardiovascular response (CR) to surgery. STUDY DESIGN Retrospective clinical study. ANIMALS One hundred and fifteen dogs undergoing general anaesthesia for surgery caudal to the diaphragm between 2005 and(More)
OBJECTIVE To describe a new approach to block the femoral nerve and to evaluate the distribution of a dye injected into the psoas compartment using a new femoral nerve block approach; to assess its clinical application, when combined with a sciatic nerve block, for surgical anaesthesia/analgesia of the pelvic limb in dogs. STUDY DESIGN Prospective(More)
OBJECTIVE The aim of this study was to compare two different alpha2 agonist-opioid combinations in ponies undergoing field castration. STUDY DESIGN Prospective double-blind randomized clinical trial. ANIMAL POPULATION Fifty-four ponies undergoing field castration. MATERIALS AND METHODS The ponies were randomly allocated to receive one of three(More)
OBJECTIVE To evaluate the success rate and complications of lumbar plexus (LP) and femoral nerve (FN) blocks, each combined with a sciatic nerve (SN) block, in dogs undergoing pelvic limb orthopaedic surgery. DESIGN Retrospective clinical study. PROCEDURE The intra-operative and postoperative clinical records of dogs that underwent orthopaedic surgery(More)
