It is interesting to note that drug dosages have had to be higher than normally used, because the animals are in excellent condition and therefore heavier than normal. The ?cocktail' used for an adult cow, for example, would be 2 milligrams M99 (Etorphine), 30 milligrams Fentanyl and 100 milligr...

Use of Immobilon in zoo animals. Immobilon is Etorphine, M99. Etoprhine induces uncontrolled excitable behaviour and we tried to overcome the side effect by simultanous administration of Rompun (xylazine 100 mg/ml) In 4 cases of immobilizing Ceratotherium simum we used 1.6 ml of Immobilon, no ...
