  • OBJECTIVE To compare the quality of anesthesia and analgesia from femoral and sciatic nerve blocks (FS) with bupivacaine and dexmedetomidine with that from an epidural injection (EPI) with bupivacaine and buprenorphine in dogs undergoing unilateral stifle arthroplasty. STUDY DESIGN Prospective, blinded, randomized, clinical comparison. ANIMALS Twenty-six dogs weighing 36 ± 10 kg and aged 5 (1-11) years. METHODS Dogs were randomly assigned to either FS [n = 13; bupivacaine 0.5% (0.5 mg kg… CONTINUE READING
