In the present study, the optimal electric current and induction time of the acupuncture anesthesia were determined and the clinical signs during and after the acupuncture anesthesia were observed in 90 Korean native dogs. The results were summarized as fellows. 1. Optimal electric current was 11-13 Hz at 1.0 volt initially with gradual increase up to 22-26 Hz at 5.0-6.0 volts after 5 minutes. 2. The induction time was 7-20 minutes in all cased; 55.8% out of them showed the induction time of 7-10 minutes. 3. No differences were found in the analgesic effect and clinical signs between ages and between body weights. There were individual differences in the induction time and the optimal electric current. The respiratory and pulse rates were lower at 5 minutes after the removal of the needles than 5 minutes before attachment of needles to the electrodes.
