Xylazine injection – 100 mg/mL
Nerfasin 100 should be used in horses when it is desirable to produce
a state of sedation accompanied by a shorter period of analgesia.
Dosage and Administration:
Intravenously – 0.5 mL/45 kg body weight (Equivalent to 1.1 mg/kg or 0.5 mg/lb)
Intramusculary – 1.0 mL/45 kg body weight (Equivalent to 2.2 mg/kg or 1 mg/lb).
Following injection of Nerfasin 100 , the animal should be allowed to rest quietly
until the full effect has been reached. These dosages produce sedation which is
usually maintained for 1 to 2 hours and analgesia which lasts for 15 to 30 minutes.
