Define Tranquilization

In what stage of anesthesia would you likely see pupil dilation with prominent eyelash, palpebral and corneal reflexes.(You would also see nystagmus in horses)
Stage 2
In what plane of Stage 3 anesthesia would an animal be if painful procedures cause an increase in heart and respiratory rates, tactile and palpebral reflex no longer occur, and the third eyelid partially covers the cornea in the dog and cat. (The cornea may be completely hidden by the lower eyelid of the cow
Plane 2
In What plane of Stage 3 anesthesia may a dog horse and cow be intubated but not a pig or cat
During plane 3 stage 3 anesthesia where will the cornea be
centered between the palpebra
Besides eyeball rotation what other physical cues can be used to determine depth of anesthesia
Yawning - persists to stage 3
Ear Flick - stage 3 plane 2
Anal reflex - dangerous depth
