Studies on the clinical use of several tranquillisers in donkeys

Studies on the clinical use of several tranquillisers in donkeys

Veterinary Medical Review (2): 106-114

In experiments with 30 healthy donkeys between 6 months and 14 years old the optimum i/m dose at which the animals remained on their feet (so that a flank laparotomy could be performed) was 0.06 ml of 2% xylazine solution, 0.023 ml of 2% Combelen (propionylpromazine) or 0.17 ml/kg body weight of 2.5% Neurazine solution. The best sedative effective was obtained with propionylpromazine.
