The clinical efficacy and safety of an emulsion containing 10 mg/ml of the intravenous anaesthetic propofol were evaluated in cats and dogs by veterinary surgeons in eight practices in the United Kingdom. A total of 290 dogs and 207 cats were anaesthetised with propofol either as a single injection for procedures of short duration, or as an induction agent(More)
1. The temperature near the carotid artery has been measured in the unrestrained pig by means of radiotelemetry. When the animals were housed singly under constant conditions of temperature and lighting the temperature rhythm appeared to be related only to the time of feeding. A similar record was obtained from temperature measurements made in the(More)
1. The temperature on the surface of the pig's scrotum was increased by circulating water through a pad held over the scrotal surface while the animal was lightly restrained.2. At an ambient temperature of 25 degrees C there was no change in respiratory frequency even when the scrotum was heated to 42 degrees C, but peripheral blood flow did increase and(More)
1. The rate of blood flow through the tail of the pig has been measured by means of venous occlusion plethysmography using a mercury in rubber strain gauge. Conscious animals were used in all experiments because previous work had demonstrated that anaesthetics interfere with the animal's ability to vasoconstrict.2. Graded changes in the temperature of the(More)
The influence of length of light:dark cycle on motor activity, food intake and growth has been investigated in young pigs subject to either 12 hr light:12 hr dark, or 9 hr light:9 hr dark. Motor activity was positively correlated with the light phase in both groups. No differences were found in growth rate or in the average amount of food eaten in a 72 hr(More)
1. The influences on respiratory frequency of ambient temperature, the temperature of the skin, the temperature and humidity of the inspired air, hypothalamic temperature, the temperature of the spinal cord, rectal temperature and some temperatures in the abdomen have been studied in the pig.2. At a constant ambient temperature the effect on respiratory(More)
l. The food intake of forty-seven young growing pigs has been measured during exposure to cold, thermoneutral and warm ambient temperatures. In some experiments the pigs were allowed to feed from an open bowl and in others they performed an operant response to obtain food. 2. When the pigs were housed at a thermoneutral temperature and transferred once a(More)
