Bottom Line: The multimodal therapy decreased significantly (P < 0.05) the heart rate in groups A, B, and D.However, temperature significantly (P < 0.05) decreased in groups A, B, and C.In conclusion, the multimodal therapy could be used successfully.

ABSTRACT
The assessment of anaesthetic and clinical indices of multimodal therapy of propofol, xylazine, and ketamine was done in West African Dwarf (WAD) goat. Sixteen healthy male WAD goats were assigned into four treatment groups, namely, control (group A) (ketamine 5 mg/kg + xylazine 0.05 mg/kg), group B (propofol 5 mg/kg + xylazine 0.05 mg/kg), group C (propofol 5 mg/kg + ketamine 5 mg/kg), and group D (propofol 2.5 mg/kg + ketamine 2.5 mg/kg + xylazine 0.05 mg/kg). All drugs were administered intravenously. The multimodal therapy decreased significantly (P < 0.05) the heart rate in groups A, B, and D. Also respiratory rate significantly (P < 0.05) decreased in groups A, B, and D but significantly (P < 0.05) increased at 20 min after induction in group C. However, temperature significantly (P < 0.05) decreased in groups A, B, and C. The induction was good and smooth in groups B and D. Surgical anaesthetic time was longer in groups B and D and shorter in group C. The quality of recovery was good in groups B and D. Side effects such as salivation and apnoea were observed in all groups. In conclusion, the multimodal therapy could be used successfully. However, group D could be the best combination considering the parameters measured.

Mentions: There was significant (P < 0.05) decrease in rectal temperature in group B from 10 min to 40 min after induction when compared to other groups. The temperature also significantly (P < 0.05) decreased in groups B, C, and D at 40 min when compared to group A. However, rectal temperature increased significantly in group D at 20 min after induction when compared to group A (Figure 3).
