It has been replaced by dexmedetomidine in domestic dog and cat anesthesia, because medetomidine is currently no longer available in a small animal formulation. Medetomidine is a commonly used supplemental drug combined with ketamine and other injectable anesthetic agents for use in great apes, 22–24 nonhuman primates, and carnivores. It is an important constituent of BAM (Wildlife .   Medetomidine and atipamezole in small animal practice.

Tijdschrift Voor. Medetomidine (10, 20, 40 μg/kg) was used as a premedicant before thiopentone, halothane and nitrous oxide anaesthesia in 60 dogs undergoing a variety of elective surgical and diagnostic procedures at the University of Liverpool Small Animal Hospital. The efficacy of the sedation produced by the three dose groups was evaluated using a sedation scoring system which is by: use of medetomidine and atipamezole in laboratory animals Thus MED/KET cannot be recommended as a short duration reversible anaesthetic in the rat. When MED (pg/kg) was combined with Hypnorm (fentanyl pg/ml, fluanisone 10 mg/ml, Janssen) and pl/kg given intraperitoneally (IP) anaesthesia was produced after 10 minutes.

In small animal species (i.e. birds, rabbits, tortoises, snakes) DEX is right and proper because it is very powerful and need a small volume to give sedative effect []. The small volume it’s also important because it’s necessary to inject small quantity of liquid in the little muscles of these particular animals. Objectives: 1) To describe electroencephalogram (EEG) appearance in the awake dog and compare these results with EEG recordings after low dose medetomidine (2 μg/kg IV) followed by atipamezole (10 μg/kg, IM); 2) To institute EEG recordings after low dose medetomidine or dexmedetomidine as a standard of practice if focal abnormalities and amplitudes were not significantly altered by.

In veterinary anesthesia, medetomidine is often used in combinations with opioids (butorphanol, buprenorphine etc.) as premedication (before a general anesthetic) in healthy cats and dogs. It can be given by intramuscular injection (IM), subcutaneous injection (SC) or intravenous injection (IV). When delivered intravenously, a significantly decreased dose is a: C₁₃H₁₆N₂.
