Abstract
The study aimed to explore the effect of electroacupuncture during laparotomy in goats. Fifteen healthy adult bucks were used to receive electroacupuncture in 10 newly selected acupoints. The obtained data (M±SD) were assessed at intervals (0 min.) before induction, (5 min.), (10 min.), (15 min.) and (20 min.) during induction, (30 min.), (45 min.) and (60 min.) throughout surgery and (24 hrs.) after surgery, cortisol levels in serum at (0), (24 hrs.), and (72 hrs.) throughout laparotomy. They showed improvement in the rates of eyelid closure, head, and neck relaxation, rumen motility, and tympany which were graded into mild (+), moderate (++), and severe (+++) degrees. The respiratory rates, body temperatures, and capillary fill times were not significantly different. The total mean of hematocrit was (19.9±2.68), the total mean of haemoglobin was (9.9±0.94), the total mean of RBCs was (7.9±0.8), the total mean of platelets was (244861.3±138444.8) and the total mean of SPO2 was (70.5±4.6). ALT and AST showed no significance. The significant mean cortisol level was (2.6±2.01) and the significant mean of pain threshold level was (0.02±0.03). The obtained results proved that electroacupuncture had a lot of significant parameters, and had been considered a powerful anaesthetic for abdominal surgery in goats.

Key words: acupuncture, electroacupuncture, laparotomy, wound healing, goat anaesthesia.
