The experiment was conducted on six healthy non-descript goats of either sex weighing between 20-25 kg by administrating atropine sulphate @ 0.04 mg/kg I/M followed by buprenorphine @ 10 mg/kg I/M and 10 min. later followed by induction of anaesthesia with propofol @ 5mg/kg I/V. After buprenorphine administration, lowering of head was observed in all the animals within 8.20±0.58 min. After propofol injection, there was rapid and smooth onset of anaesthesia (0.500.55 min). Swallowing reflex, corneal and palpebral reflexes abolished within 3 min after onset of anaesthesia which remained throughout the period of duration of anaesthesia. The anal pinch and pedal reflexes were fully abolished along with complete muscle relaxation of jaw, tail, anus sphincter and limbs which was good but for short duration. The mean duration of anaesthesia was 31.33±1.20 min. and lasted by raising of head. The mean returned to sternal recumbency was 43.45± 2.50 minutes. All the animals tried to stand with ataxia at 51.20 ±1.50 and complete recovery i.e. animals stand without ataxia took 60.00 ± 2.58 minutes after propofol administration. Rectal temperature did not show any significant variation whereas heart and respiration rate showed significant (P<0.05) decrease after buprenorphine-propofol administration and returned to near base value by 180 min. It can be concluded that buprenorphine-propofol combination may be safely used for short duration anaesthesia in atropinized goats.
