Lidocaine is a potent local anesthetic for producing epidural, nerve conduction and infiltration anesthesia.Lidocaine is contraindicated in animals with a known hypersensitivity to the drug. Lidocaine is usually well tolerated. Nevertheless, as with all local anesthetics, untoward effects may occur due to hypersensitivity, faulty technique, overdosage and inadvertent intravascular or subarachnoid injection. In case of respiratory arrest, immediate resuscitation with oxygen is indicated.
