Resumo

An adult female armadillo (Priodontes maximus) weighing 32.4 kg was admitted to the Veterinary Hospital of the Federal University of Mato Grosso (HOVET-UFMT) - Campus Cuiabá. Results of clinical and complementary examinations revealed a complete oblique fracture of the middle third of the femur. As a pre-anesthetic regimen, a combination of ketamine (10 mg/kg) and midazolam (0.2 mg/kg) was administered, and analgesic support with morphine (0.5 mg/kg) and dipyrone (25 mg/kg) was provided. This was followed by induction of anesthesia through a facial mask and its maintenance with sevoflurane diluted in 100% oxygen by means of a calibrated vaporizer. The anesthetic system used was suitable for the weight of the animal; the animal breathed spontaneously. During the procedure, the animal had stable cardiovascular and respiratory parameters, and had a fast and satisfactory recovery.
