Sedivet 10 mg/ml Solution for Injection
Uses
Action
Dose dependent sedation, associated with tolerance of pain. The sedative effect of Sedivet is induced by stimulation of presynaptic alpha2-receptors in the central nervous system. Sedivet possesses a strong specific affinity for these receptors.
Indications
Equine sedative to facilitate handling, examination, minor surgical interventions and manipulations. Sedivet may be used as a premedication agent with ketamine or thiopentone for short duration anaesthesia or used with ketamine or thiopentone prior to halothane inhalation or `topping up' with ketamine or thiopentone for prolonged procedures. Sedivet has also been used with synthetic opiates (e.g. butorphanol) to provide profound sedation/analgesia. For use in horses only.
