Abstract
This study describes the successful use of modified
dorsolumbar epidural anesthesia with a fixed volume of
anesthetic in a bovine referral center. Among the 130
Holstein cattle scheduled for flank surgery, 90 cattle
received a mixed anesthetic consisting of 1 ml of xylazine
hydrochloride and 3 ml of lidocaine hydrochloride by
modified dorsolumbar epidural anesthesia. Eighteen
cattle with dehydration and/or lameness received a mixed
anesthetic containing 0.5 ml of xylazine and 3 ml of
lidocaine. Infiltration anesthesia was performed in 22
cattle whose epidural space could not be reached in order
to perform the flank surgery. The surgeries began about
12 min after the administration of the anesthetic and
lasted for about 36 min. The modified method using a
fixed volume of anesthetic was successfully introduced
and effectively used in a bovine referral center. This
modified method will allow veterinarians to save time and
effort, thus lowering the cost of each surgery.
