Observations following intravenous xylazine administration in steers

Veterinary Record 114(23): 567-569

Observations following intravenous xylazine administration in steers

Xylazine was used on 84 occasions to anaesthetize 34 steers, (17 Herefords and 17 Friesians) between 10 and 24 months of age with body weights ranging from 209 to 563 kg. Xylazine as a 2% solution was injected intravenously; the mean dose for the Hereford steers was 0.228 mg/kg and for the Friesian steers 0.274 mg/kg. On 21 occasions xylazine only was used. On the other occasions the xylazine was supplemented with local or regional analgesia.
