This case report presents the perianaesthetic management of a geriatric dog that underwent a hemilaminectomy surgery for T11-T12 medullar compression. A 10-year-old crossbreed male was presented at the Faculty of Veterinary Medicine in Bucharest for neurological investigation of acute onset of right posterior unilateral paresis. The magnetic resonance investigation revealed T11-T12 medullar compression, with surgery indication (hemilaminectomy). The patient was premedicated with Fentanyl 3 mcg/kg and Midazolam 0.2 mg/kg administered intravenously (IV). Induction was made with Propofol 4 mg/kg intravenously. Afterwards, the patient was intubated and maintained with Isoflurane along with the administration of a constant rate infusion (CRI) with Fentanyl (3 mcg/kg/h) and Ketamine (1 mg/kg/h) and an epidural anaesthesia with Lidocaine (2 mg/kg). Postoperatively, the patient received a multimodal analgesia management to help her not to exhibit any pain levels.
