Conclusions  Administration of buprenorphine at either 20 or 40 μg kg−1 IM with acepromazine provided good preâ€�operative sedation. Cardiovascular and respiratory values remained within clinically acceptable limits during anaesthesia. There was no evidence that increasing dose increased adverse events that may be associated with opioid administration (e.g. bradycardia and respiratory depression).Clinical relevance  Increasing the dose of buprenorphine from 20 to 40 μg kg−1 did not provide any benefits with respect to analgesia after ovariohysterectomy as assessed using the VAS scoring system.
