Acepromazine (10mg/ml) is used for tranquilization, sedation and as a pre-anesthetic agent in horses, dogs and cats. Can be used as an aid to control animals during treatment, examination and minor surgical procedures. Acepromazine has a depressant effect on the central nervous system and thus causes sedation, muscular relaxation and also a reduction in spontaneous activity. Acepromazine acts rapidly, exerting a prompt and very pronounced calming effect. It is an effective pre-anesthetic agent and also lowers the dosage requirement of general anesthetics. Acepromazine may be given intramuscularly, intravenously or subcutaneously.
