Abstract

Visual evoked potentials (VEPs) are useful to evaluate the visual pathway integrity from ganglion cells of the retina to the visual cortex. VEP could be applied to evaluate the effects on optic nerve function following ophthalmologic treatments and in toxicity studies. The aims of this research were to design a clinical protocol for testing flash-VEPs during sedation and dissociative anaesthesia in laboratory dogs, and to propose updated normal data for beagles.
