Dormosedan® allows you to choose the depth of analgesia and sedation as well as the duration of the sedation with a high degree of accuracy. Dormosedan® can therefore facilitate a wide variety of procedures including minor surgical procedures, general examinations, diagnostic procedures, wound treatment, transportation, dental care, calming fractious horses, therapeutic medication, hoof care and clipping.
Clinicians should anticipate the occasional tendency of the horse's head to drop under the influence of Dormosedan® and the subject should be accommodated appropriately. Immediately following administration there may be a tendency to stagger, particularly if high dose rates are employed.
Dormosedan® is rapidly absorbed from the injection site and evenly distributed. Site tolerance is high with minimal tissue irritation. The horse should not be fed until the effect of the drug has worn off. If the desired level of sedation is not achieved following administration of a low dose, a further additive dose may be given.
Usual sterile techniques and precautions should be employed as with any parenteral drug administration. Dormosedan® is a potent preparation and any accidental spillage etc. should be promptly washed off.
The safe handling of horses can be improved with Dormosedan®. Although the horse is easier to handle under Dormosedan® sedation, normal restraint methods are also recommended. Local anaesthetics can be used when required.
