Abstract

Correctly identifying the puncture site and needle position in obese dogs can be challenging to achieve epidural anaesthesia. The current study aimed to evaluate a real-time ultrasound-guided technique, to perform epidural anaesthesia in obese or appropriate body condition score dogs, based on...

Abstract

The objective of this study was to compare the dosages for anesthesia induction in obese dogs using propofol based on lean body weight or total body weight. For this purpose, seven dogs with ideal body condition score (BCS) (BCS 4-5; 17.3 ± 2.5% fat mass) were included in the control group (CG),...

Abstract

Canine obesity is a disorder that affects 30% of the canine world population, which increases the chances of an obese patient needing to undergo general anesthesia. As in obese humans, weight excess affects most vital organs of the obese dog and that poses significant challenges to...

Abstract

Obesity is a major issue in veterinary medicine. It is not only an accumulation of fat, but obesity also has important cardiovascular and respiratory implications. Therefore, it can strongly influence the anesthesia in obese patients. In addition, obesity can have an underlying cause or may lead to ...

Abstract

The anesthesia induction of the obese dog poses a great challenge to the veterinary anesthesiologist since these patients present respiratory and cardiovascular alterations. Besides that, there is little information on anesthetic protocols in the literature. Therefore, the objective was to compare...

AbstractFull Text

To measure the skin to lumbosacral epidural space distance (SED) and investigate its correlation with age, body weight (BW) and body condition score (BCS) in dogs. Client-owned dogs (n=123) that received epidural anesthesia, SED was measured. Correlations were determined between SED and age, BW,...

Abstract

We describe the respiratory mechanics and lung aeration in anesthetized obese dogs ventilated with tidal volumes (VT) based on ideal (VTi) vs. current (VTc) body weight. Six dogs with body condition scores ≥ 8/9 were included. End-expiratory respiratory mechanics and end-expiratory CT-scan were...

Abstract

Obesity is an emerging problem in pet animals. Laparoscopic gastric greater curvature serosa to serosa plication was done in eight obese dogs under butorphanol sedation with propofol-isoflurane anaesthesia. The food intake decreased significantly with significant decrease in the body fat percentage ...
