but also causes prolonged motor blockade, which can lead to recumbency for up to 6 hours. This prolonged recumbency can lead to ruminal tympany, gastrointestinal stasis, nerve or muscle injury, and loss of production. 1 , 5 Subarachnoid injection of

). Motor blockade was assessed by evaluation of a dog's ability to stand on its forelimbs. A 3-point rating scale was used: 1, normal motor response (stands on the forelimbs and hind limbs); 2, moderate motor blockade (presence of weakness of the forelimbs

These local anesthetics have a brief onset of action (within 5 minutes), but the blockade provided is also brief. 6 , 10 For instance, pelvic limb motor blockade lasted a mean ± SD of 48 ± 25 minutes for lidocaine (2 mg/kg, 10 mg/mL) and a median of 68

can have a prolonged duration of sensory and motor blockade, resulting in goats being unable to stand for up to 3 hours for lidocaine 8 and 11 hours for bupivacaine. 9 In small ruminants, the subarachnoid space is easily accessed at the lumbosacral

In anesthetized pigs, perineural administration of liposomal bupivacaine adjacent to the sciatic nerve decreased motor function for a mean of 10 hours and blocked sensation for a mean of 9.2 hours. 14 In anesthetized rabbits, motor blockade of the
