Pain reflex and anesthetic state in swine with xylazine epidural anesthesia were observed. In xylazine epidural anesthesia, dosages of 0.50mg/kg BW for analgesia of perineal region and 0.7550mg/kg for analgesia of low abdominal wall were required. Regional anesthesia was induced 5~20 min after epidural injection of xylazine and recovered 90~120 min after administration. The results indicated that xylazine as an epidural local anesthetic was useful in swine.
