Overview Of Medetomidine For Cats And Dogs

Overview of Medetomidine for Cats/Dogs

Medetomidine, commonly known by the brand name Dormitor, is an injectable drug used for sedation in dogs and cats. Medetomidine belongs to a class of drugs known as alpha 2 adrenergic agonists and is similar to clonidine and xylazine. It is a sedative that provides pain relief as well as muscle relaxation.

After intramuscular (IM) injection, the effects of medetomidine are seen within 10 to 15 minutes. After intravenous injection, the effects are seen within 5 minutes.

The analgesia associated with medetomidine only lasts 15 to 30 minutes but sedation can last 1 to 2 hours. Complete recovery can take 2 to 4 hours.

Within the first 3 to 5 minutes after IM injection, vomiting can occur.

The effects of medetomidine can be reversed with the use of atipamezole. This can significantly reduce the amount of time needed for recovery.

Despite appearing completely sedated, animals can still move, even kick, bite or scratch, in response to sharp auditory stimulation.

Medetomidine is a prescription drug and can only be obtained from a veterinarian or by prescription from a veterinarian.
