Abstract

Epidural administration of opioids alone or in combination with local anaesthetics is a commonly performed procedure. Injection at the lumbosacral space may result in inadvertent intrathecal injection. Myoclonus and hypersensitivity following intrathecal injection have been previously reported in a dog but not in cats.
