What special precautions are there?

Care should be taken with the use of Domitor in animals with cardiovascular, respiratory, liver and kidney disease or in animals in poor general health. The concomitant use of other CNS depressants should be expected to potentiate the depressant effects of either product and appropriate dose adjustments should be made. The effects of Domitor can be reversed by Antisedan (A6178). The administration of anticholinergic agents (atropine or glycopyrrolate) to treat bradycardia either simultaneously or following medetomidine could lead to adverse cardiovascular effects. Use in pregnancy has not been monitored in sufficient animals and thus cannot be recommended. Domitor should not be used in conjunction with sympathomimetic amines.

What to do if overdose?

Contact your nearest emergency animal hospital.

How can I store Dexdomitor 10 ml?

Store at controlled room temperature 15-30°C (59-86°F). Protect from freezing.

Maximum effect is obtained within 10–15 minutes.  Duration of the clinically useful effect is dose related (30–180 minutes).  The dose can be repeated if necessary. When Dexdomitor is used as a pre-anaesthetic, the dose of the anaesthetic agents subsequently administered can be reduced by as much as 60%.

Dogs: DEXDOMITOR produces sedation and analgesia when administered intramuscularly (IM) at a dose of 500 mcg/m2, or intravenously (IV) at a dose of 375 mcg/m2. Doses for preanesthesia are 125 or 375 mcg/m2 IM. The choice of preanesthetic dose depends on the duration and severity of the procedure, as well as the anesthetic regime. The following two tables may be used to determine the correct dexmedetomidine dosage. Note that the mcg/kg dosage decreases as body weight increases. For example, dogs weighing 2 kg are dosed at 28 mcg/kg dexmedetomidine IV, compared to dogs weighing 80 kg that are dosed at 9 mcg/kg. Due to the small volume of administration, accurate dosing is not possible in dogs weighing less than 2 kg.

Cats: DEXDOMITOR produces sedation and analgesia when administered IM at a dose of 40 mcg/kg. The following table may be used to determine the correct dexmedetomidine dosage for cats based on body weight.
