The cattle having different surgical ailments of hoof/digit were divided in to two groups including 6 cattle in each group. Lignocaine hydrochloride (@ 4 mg/kg b.wt) and combination of lignocaine HCl + pentazocine lactate (4 mg/kg b.wt. + 1.0 mg/kg b.wt.) was injected in the radial vein in group I and II animals, respectively for inducing IVRA. In group I the HR and PR increased significantly (P < 0.05) at 20 minutes. The RR increased at 10 minutes in group I and between 30 and 60 minutes in group II. Oxygen saturation significantly (P < 0.05) decreased between 5, 10, 15, 20 and 30 minutes interval. Systolic pressure significantly increased between 15 and 30 minutes in group I animals. SBOT was less and SBRT was significantly (P < 0.05) more in group II as compared to group I. MBOT was similar in both group I and II animals. Efficacy of lignocaine in combination with pentazocine for producing IVRA was more as compared to lignocaine alone.
