The study was conducted in twelve numbers of female Murrah buffalo dividing in to two groups,
each of six numbers. One as control and other group as experimental animals. Physiological and
haemodynamic parameters were studied in both groups. In experimental group, 2000 ml of normal
saline solution was introduced to each animal through two intravenous routes within 20 minutes.
There was non-significant variation of rectal temperature at 15 and 25 minutes after induced
hypertension. The mean respiratory rate at 15 minutes of induced hypertension increased nonsignificantly
and at 25 minutes after induced hypertension the mean value of respiration was
significantly (p 0.01) increase compared to control group. Post exposure the heart rate was nonsignificantly
increased at 15 minute from control group. At 25 minute of induced hypertension the
mean heart rate also increased non-significantly from the mean of 15 minutes. The pulse rate
significantly (p 0.05) increase from control at 15 and 25 minutes after induced hypertension
respectively. The pulse deficit was non-significantly increased at 15 and 25 minutes after induced
hypertension. The mean value of blood volume increased significantly (p< 0.05) at 25 minutes of
induced hypertension. The present study helps the clinician to diagnose the hypertension in buffalo
and it can be elaborated in diagnosis of hypertension in other animal also.
