Intrathecal (subdural) administration of anesthetic and analgesic drugs in turtles and tortoises is a novel
technique for the induction of spinal anesthesia and analgesia. Possible indications for spinal anesthesia
include surgical procedures of the tail, phallus, cloaca, and hind limbs. Intrathecal injections are
performed at the level of the coccygeal vertebrae. In red-eared sliders the intrathecal administration of
lidocaine (2% preservative free, 4 mg/kg) and bupivacaine (0.5% preservative free, 1 mg/kg) provides
regional anesthesia of the tail, cloaca, and hind limbs for about 1 and 2 hours, respectively. The
intrathecal administration of morphine provides regional analgesia for up to 48 hours. Strict aseptic
techniques should be used to avoid iatrogenic complications, and only preservative-free drugs should be
injected into the intrathecal space so that spinal toxicity and secondary neurologic complications are
avoided.
