The present paper describes general anesthesia technique and surgical parainguinal approach to remove an abdominal testis in a 2 year old Bactrian camel. The testis was located by transbdominal ultrasonography in an area adjacent to the inguinal ring. General anesthesia was induced by Guaifenesin 5% (200 milliliters IV) followed by a bolus of ketamine (1050mg, IV) and maintained with Isoflorane in oxygen. The parainguinal approach to cryptorchidectomy as described was performed without complications, with a smooth uneventful recovery.
Key words : Anaesthesia, bactrian camel, cryptorchidectomy, parainguinal
