PREDICTABLE AND EFFECTIVE SEDATION AND ANALGESIA YOU CAN COUNT ON EVERY TIME

DORMOSEDAN is an a2 adrenoceptor agonist that provides non-narcotic sedation and analgesia that can be used safely in horses for a variety of minor surgical and diagnostic procedures. The greater a2selectivity of DORMOSEDAN allows it to bind specifically to a2adrenoceptors to produce predictable and effective sedation and analgesia.

  • Predictable Sedation

      • a2 selectivity makes DORMOSEDAN predictable and effective

      • Only  a2 -agonist which has significant analgesia extending more than 15 minutes post administration1, 2, 3

      • DORMOSEDAN provides non-narcotic sedation with a wide margin of safety

  • Greater a2 selectivity and dosing flexibility

      • DORMOSEDAN allows dosing flexibility so you can accurately regulate the depth and length of sedation and analgesia

      • Simple dosing: 1 or 2 mL per 1,100 lbs horse IM or IV

      • Whether administered IV or IM, DORMOSEDAN produces rapid onset of effect (5 minutes for IV,10 to15 minutes for IM)

      • Xylazine can bind with a1 and non-a2 receptor sites, producing variable neurological effects4

      • DORMOSEDAN’s potency is 80 to 100 times greater than xylazine in sedation and analgesic effect5

      • Effects may be maintained up to 2 hours depending on dose level and route of administration, with analgesia being more pronounced following IV injection

      • Additional dosing prolongs not depends sedation

      • Zoetis does not recommend the use at higher than the approved label dosed
