A total of 5 female dogs of varying age group were admitted at Ranchi Veterinary College in Dept. of Veterinary Surgery and Radiology for elective ovariohysterectomy. All the dogs were premedicated with Atropine sulphate, s/c @ 0.04 mg/kg b.wt. 5 min prior to each treatment. Xylazine @1 mg/kg b.wt –tramadol @ 3 mg/kg b.wt IM thereafter propofol to effect” IV 15 min later and maintained by C.R.I method of propofol @0.3 mg/kg b.wt/min. Rectal temperature and respiration rate exhibited significant alterations whereas heart rate did not show a significant variation. Haemoglobin, packed cell volume, total leucocytic counts and differential leucocytic counts except lymphocytes exhibited non- significant alterations (P>0.05) at different intervals. The values of lymphocytes exhibited a significant fall up to 2 hrs of observation as compared to base line value. A variable and consistent increase (P>0.05) in blood urea nitrogen, creatinine, ALT, total protein could be noticed at different intervals after administration of drugs. However, these changes were non-significant (p>0.05) and within normal physiological limits. Whereas, glucose and AST showed the significant elevation (P<0.05) at different intervals of observation. It is concluded that tramadol as preanaesthetic as analgesia in xylazine and propofol induced and CRI methods for maintenance in canine ovariohysterectomy produced little variation in physiology and haematobiochemical profiles.
