The choice of anesthesia protocols for swine must take into account, besides specific characteristics, the type of surgery and the experience of the anesthetist. The anesthesia protocol used for 64 cases ensured the premises of a good surgical performance in swine procedures, while adopting correct surgical and anesthetic techniques and a continuing monitorig of the patient. Main anesthetic complications related to anesthesia for swines, according to our research were: high sensibility regarding stress factors during contention, difficult vascular access and intubation, rapid installation of hypothermia, occurrence of malignant hyperthermia while using gaseous anesthetics, anaphylaxis, regurgitation and aspiration pneumonia. Complications occurred in 20.31% of cases, ranking this species in the category of patients with high anesthetic risk for invasive surgical procedure.
