5 Matching questions

  1. hydromorphone
  2. doxepin
  3. glycopyrrolate
  4. ephedrine
  5. phenoxybenzamine
  1. a Dilaudid like oxymorphone but less expensive and less potential to excite cats for pre-med and analgesia, can cause hyperthermia in cats
  2. b Dibenzyline an alpha blocker AKA adrenergic antagonist AKA sympatholytic decreases urethral sphincter tone in cats after removing obstruction and for laminitis in horses
  3. c an adrenergic agonist AKA sympathomimetic bronchodilator
  4. d an anticholinergic AKA parasympatholytic preanesthetic like atropine but lasts longer and only marginally crosses placenta so good for C-sections
  5. e behavior drug acts on serotonin TCA (tricyclic anti-depressant) for separation anxiety compulsive disorder fear aggression and urine marking may cause sedation at first, high HR dry mouth, urine retention, and constipation liver and kidney values monitored by blood tests

5 Multiple choice questions

  1. Versed a benzodiazepine tranquilizer light sensitive controlled drug can absorb into IV bag cats can experience rare liver DX
  2. Reconcile (vet label for separation anxiety in dogs) and Prozac SSRI (selective serotonin reuptake inhibitor) more serotonin specific than TCA's so fewer side effects for separation anxiety, aggression, compulsive disorder, phobias, and urine marking may cause anorexia or decreased appetite(common in Reconcile) lethargy at first, urine and stool retention, liver and kidney value blood testing needed
  3. Telazol when combined with tiletamine to induce anesthesia
  4. adrenergic catecholamine neurotransmitter for shock heart and heart failure increases renal perfusion
  5. Halothane and Flouthane RED liquid inhalant anesthetic no longer available high vapor pressure(volatility) low solubility content some lipid solubility moderate MAC and rubber solubility preservative cause buildup in machine sensitizes heart to catecholamines and can cause arrhythmias like xylazine increases vagal tone = low RR possible hepatotoxicity risk since 25% goes to liver malignant hyperthermia risk in pigs mostly

5 True/False questions

  1. buspironean adrenergic agonist AKA sympathomimetic bronchodilator


  2. diazepamTelazol when combined with tiletamine to induce anesthesia


  3. pentobarbitalSleepaway, Fatal Plus, Socumb, Beuthanasia-D Special short acting oxybarbiturate controlled for euthanasia can cause muscle twitching, delayed death if injected perivascular


  4. atipamezolean alpha blocker AKA adrenergic antagonist AKA sympatholytic a phenothiazine tranquilizer/sedative blocks dopamine for situational anxiety can cause low BP, hypothermia, and vasodilation d/t alpha antagonism no analgesia effects reduced on fearful/excited animal


  5. ketamine HCldissociative agent blocks NMDA receptors in brain for anesthesia (not surgical plane) may produce catalepsy(rigid muscles), twithching, dry eye, salivation, convulsions, and hallucinations anesthesia, analgesia, and amnesia often combined w/ sedative like diazepam to decrease catalepsy and deepen anesthesia eyes stay open eye lube! good outer (somatic) analgesia but not visceral (organs) for sedation, restraint, controlled
