Further information
Detomidine is a sedative with analgesic properties (alpha-2 adrenoceptor agonist) which can be used to facilitate handling of horses for examination, minor surgical interventions and other manipulations.
Detomidine is rapidly and completely absorbed after intramuscular injection. The rapid distribution to tissues is followed by almost complete metabolism. The metabolites are mainly excreted in urine and faeces.
