ABSTRACT
We studied using ultrasound investigation the changes of heart function parameters as a result of acepromazine and xylazine administration in 9 adult horses, mixed breed. Comparing with control group (unsedated horses) acepromazine induced RVFWs statistically increase (p<0,05). Acepromazine also determined statistically decrease of LVIDd (p<0,05) resulting a decrease of Vd (p<0.01). Xylazine induced decrease of LVFWd (p<0.01) and increase of Vd (p<0.5). Acepromazine did not induce statistically significant changes on other parameters: RVFWd, RVIDs, RVIDd, IVSs, IVSd, LVIDs, LVFWs and LVFWd. Comparing with control group, xylazine determined same results, and did not influence RVFWs, LVIDd, Vs and Vd, so, acepromazine and xylazine did not induce any statistically changes of SF% and EF %.
