Age-related anesthetic effect of ketamine in the chickens
Iraqi Journal of Veterinary Sciences
Little works of literature studied the anesthetic effect of ketamine in different ages of broiler chickens, hence this study intended to examine these alterations in chickens at different ages. The doses of ketamine that causes hypnosis in 50% of the chickens (hypnotic ED50) were 7.90, 7.90 and 6.80 mg/kg, intramuscular (IM) at 10, 20 and 40-day-old chickens, respectively, whereas the doses that resulted in analgesia in 50% of the chickens (analgesic ED50) were 12.92, 12.92 and 6.50 mg/kg, IM.doi:10.33899/ijvs.2020.127100.1458 fatcat:qjnbpkm635agnh5skcvwhzxjie
