Each ml solution contains 20 mg xylazine base (as hydrochloride).
Xylazine has sedative, analgetic and central muscular relaxing properties, giving result 5-15 minutes after injection.
In all cases where the use of a sedative is indicated, e.g. during transport, horseshoeing and operations, like f.i. dehorning. As a pre-anesthetic by operations (e.g. sectio caesaria).
Use during the last month of pregnancy (cattle), lung- and heart failures; Oesophageal obstruction, torsion of the stomach, and hernia (because of vomiting); administration in combination with neuroleptica.
Depression of heart-rate, blood pressure and respiration (when given in high doses), tympany (in ruminants) and in case of pyometritis, hypersensitivity to xylazine may occur. Be carefully, if used in combination with barbiturates (lower the dosage) because of strong depression or respiration and myocard. Analeptica (e.g. ephedrine) may reduce the sedation period.
