1 ml solution for injection contains:
Ketamine (as hydrochloride)…………………………… 100 mg
Benzalkonium chloride…………………………………. 0.11 mg
Water for injections.
Ketamine is a general anesthetic and analgesic with rapid and short action causing deep analgesia and superficial sleep (anesthesia dissociated).
Myorelaxation not produce increases blood pressure and heart rate. During narcosis store eyelid reflex, corneal and fotomotor, cutaneous and plantar reflexes disappear. Ketamine is metabolized in the liver, it is excreted in the kidneys and does not accumulate in the body. Ketamine is well tolerated by all animals.More info
Horses, cattle, sheep, goats, swine, Dogs and cats.
VETASED is recommended on short anesthesia, to perform clinical examinations for restless animals and roentgen diagnosis.
For analgesia and narcosis potentiation on combined anesthesia is used in surgery (ovariectomy, castration, cesarean, operations on eye, ear, tooth extraction) and stress prevention during transport.
VETASED is administered intramuscularly or intravenously depending on the species and body weight.
After injection the effect quick installed in 30-60 seconds (given intravenously) or 3-5 minutes (after IM administration). Duration of anesthesia is approximately 15 to 30 minutes, complete awakening taking place in 30 to 60 minutes. Extension anesthesia is done by repeating the dose. To prevent hypersalivation is recommended to perform a premedication with atropine. For horses, dogs and cats premedication is mandatory. Also in horses, dogs and cats make premedication with xylazine because reduces the adverse effects of ketamine consisting in the emergence of state of excitation. After 10 minutes of administration of xylazine, ketamine can be injected. Premedication can be made with Sedam (Acepromazine) in appropriate doses.
The recommended doses of ketamine are:
|Species||Administration route||Ketamine/kg g.c.||VETASED ml/kg|
|Horses||IntravenousIntramuscularly||1 – 2, 5 mg/kg8 – 12 mg/kg||0, 01 – 0, 0250, 08 – 0, 12|
|Cattle||IntravenousIntramuscularly||5 mg/kg15 mg/kg||0, 050, 15|
|Sheep and goats||IntravenousIntramuscularly||2 – 5 mg/kg10 – 20 mg/kg||0, 02 – 0, 050, 1 – 0, 2|
|Swine||IntravenousIntramuscularly||5 mg/kg15 – 20 mg/kg||0, 050, 15 – 0, 2|
|Dogs||IntravenousIntramuscularly||5 mg/kg5 – 20 mg/kg||0, 050, 05 – 0, 2|
|Cats||Intramuscularly||15 – 20 mg/kg||0, 15 – 0, 2|
Recommended doses for combined anesthesia are:
- 0.5 mg xylazine / kg body weight intramuscularly
- 0.004 to 0.01 mg / kg atropine body weight intramuscularly
- 1 to 2 mg xylazine / kg body weight intramuscularly or subcutaneously
- 0.05 to 0.1 mg / kg atropine body weight intramuscularly
- 0.5 mg xylazine / kg body weight subcutaneously
- 0.1 mg / kg atropine body weight intramuscularly
Avoid administration of the product in animals with glaucoma, decompensated heart disease, severe renal or hepatic insufficiency and hypertension. Administration of ketamine can cause unconsciousness without loss of reflexes. Slightly enhances heart rate and has negligible effect on respiration. Larynx and trachea reflexes remain largely unaffected. Intravenous administration should be done slowly. Animals will be protected from noise and bright light until full awakening. To avoid excessive drying of the cornea after administration is recommended to be moistened well with saline solution.
Rarely may occur respiratory disorders, hypertension, seizures, muscle tremors, vomiting, especially after rapid injection by the intravenous route. Can be used during pregnancy and lactation. In case of overdose _ quickly administration of ketamine, respiratory depression may occur, in which case shall be use mechanical ventilation. Ketamine is chemically incompatible with barbiturates, so they will not mix in the same syringe.
Store at temperatures below 25 ° C. Protect from direct light.
Vials of 20 ml, provided with rubber stoppers and metal cover.
