SPECIAL WARNINGS FOR EACH TARGET SPECIES
Make sure that brain death (respiratory and cardiac arrest, loss of corneal and pupillary reflex, or absolute areflexia) has occurred in the animal.
Pigs: In pigs, a direct relationship was found between restriction of movement and the degree of excitation and agitation. For this reason, injection should be administered with the least possible restriction of movement.
If possible, do not make any fixation (for intracardiac administration) or reduce fixation to a minimum. If fixation is necessary, use the fixation loop attached to the upper jaw.
SPECIAL PRECAUTIONS FOR USE
Special precautions for use in animals
In the event of accidental administration to an animal not presented for euthanasia, immediately take appropriate life saving measures. Ensure the support of essential life functions, especially respiratory and cardiovascular. Analeptics are appropriate antidotes.
DOSAGE AND APPLICATION
Intravenous administration, if possible. If this route of administration is not appropriate, other routes of administration are intracardiac, intrapulmonary, intraperitoneal and intraabdominal. The method of administration and the choice of any previous suitable sedation or anaesthesia are at the discretion of the veterinary surgeon. Intracardiac injection is acceptable only after deep sedation or anaesthesia.
The dose administered depends on the species of animal and the route of administration (see the table below).
