XYLAMAX Xylazine Injection 100 mg/mL
  • Horses

Indications :

Horses - Xylamax (xylazine HCl) Injection should be used when it is desirable to produce a state of sedation accompanied by a shorter period of analgesia. It has been successfully used when conducting various diagnostic, orthopaedic and dental procedures and for minor surgical procedures of short duration. It may also be used as a preanesthetic to local or general anesthesia.

Dosage and Administration:

Horses- For intravenous or intramuscular administration. Sedation and analgesia: The recommended dose for intravenous administration is 0.5 mL/45 kg body weight (equivalent to 1.1 mg/kg or 0.5 mg/lb). The recommended dose for intramuscular administration is 1.0 mL/45 kg of body weight (equivalent 2.2 mg/kg or 1.0 mg/lb).
Following the administration of Xylamax (Xylamax HCl) Injection, the animal should be allowed to rest quietly until the full effect has been reached. These dosages produce a state of sedation which is usually maintained for 1 to 2 hours and analgesia which lasts for 15 to 30 minutes.

Preanesthetic to local anesthesia - At the recommended dosage rates, Xylamax (Xylamax HCl) Injection may be used in conjunction with local anesthetics, such as procaine and lidocaine.

Preanesthetic to general anesthesia - At the recommended dosage rates, Xylamax (Xylamax HCl) Injection produces an additive effect to central nervous system depressants, such as sodium pentobarbital, sodium thiopental and sodium thiamylal. Accordingly, the dosage of such compounds should be reduced and administered to the desired effect. Generally, 1/3 to 1/2 of the calculated dosage of barbiturates will be needed to produce a surgical plane of anesthesia. Postanesthetic or emergence excitement has not been observed in animals preanesthetized with Xylazine HCl Injection.

Xylamax (Xylamax HCl) Injection has been successfully used as a preanesthetic agent with a dose range of 0.3 to 0.6 mg/kg prior to sodium pentobarbital, sodium thiopental, sodium thiamylal, nitrous oxide, ether, halothane, glyceryl guaiacolate or methoxyflurane anesthesia. Xylamax can be used at the full intravenous sedative dose (1.0 to 1.1 mg/kg) before ketamine HCl (Ketalean) induction.
