No published information exists on the chemical immobilization of free-ranging dholes (Cuon alpinus), binturongs (Arctictis binturong), or yellow-throated martens (Martes flavigula). We chemically immobilized these species in Thailand using a mixture of ketamine hydrochloride with xylazine hydrochloride (KH–XH) and tiletamine hydrochloride with zolazepam hydrochloride (TH–ZH). Mean (±SD) dose of KH–XH was 18.1±5.3 and 0.9±0.1 mg/kg for dholes (n=2), 19.7±4.1 and 1.3±0.4 mg/kg for binturongs (n…

Chemical immobilisation of dhole (Cuon alpinus), Indian jackal (Canis aureus indicus) and Indian wolf (Canis lupus pallipes) with ketamine hydrochloride–xylazine hydrochloride
TLDR
It is suggested that chemical immobilisation of captive dhole, Indian wolf and Indian jackal with 6–8 mg kg−1 ketamine and 1 mgkg−1 xylazine is effective and safe for routine management and medical interventions in these species provided body temperature is closely monitored and corrected as appropriate.

Climate and topography explain range sizes of terrestrial vertebrates
Climate, evolutionary age, topography, land area and several species traits all influence range size. Research quantifying these influences on terrestrial vertebrates suggests that small-range

Comparative Immobilization of Wild Felids in Thailand
TLDR
It is concluded that immobilization of these felids with TH-ZH and KH-XH is effective and safe, but TH- ZH is preferred because of the smaller volume of drug necessary for sedation, faster time to induction, and absence of prolonged muscle rigidity during anesthesia.
Field Immobilization of Ethiopian Wolves (Canis simensis)
TLDR
Wolves immobilized using a combination of ketamine hydrochloride and acetylpromazine had longer induction time and recovery time, and Telazol® is an effective and safe agent for immobilizing Ethiopian wolves and is preferred to ketamine/acetyl Promazine.

TLDR
It is concluded that KH and KH/XH are safe immobilizing agents for martens and short-tailed weasels, respectively.
IMMOBILIZATION OF OCELOTS AND BOBCATS WITH KETAMINE HYDROCHLORIDE AND XYLAZINE HYDROCHLORIDE
TLDR
Overall, there were no effects of KH-XH dose on body temperature and ocelots and bobcats immobilized during summer had lower initial rectal temperatures than bobcats trapped in winter.

TLDR
The efficacy, safety, and reliability of two ketamine–medetomidine–butorphanol anesthetic combinations were evaluated in 34 adult binturongs and the LK combination is preferable because the mean recovery time was shorter.
Immobilization of Wild Ocelots with Tiletamine and Zolazepam in Southern Texas
TLDR
Telazol®, administered at 5 mg/kg was an effective and safe immobilizing agent for wild ocelots and observed no adverse reactions to Telazol® aside from minor loss of thermoregulatory control.

TLDR
Annual fires that help maintain the dry deciduous dipterocarp forest in the study area may affect both short and long term survival of leopard cats.
Behaviour and movements of sympatric civet species in Huai Kha Khaeng Wildlife Sanctuary, Thailand
TLDR
The role that civets play as seed dispersal agents may help in the maintenance and structuring of tropical forest communities.
Effects of yohimbine on bradycardia and duration of recumbency in ketamine/xylazine anesthetized ferrets.
TLDR
Intramuscular administration of yohimbine antagonized the ketamine/xylazine induced bradycardia and significantly reduced duration of recumbency in 10 of 11 ferrets.
Immobilization of Gray Wolves with a Combination of Tiletamine Hydrochloride and Zolazepam Hydrochloride
TLDR
This immobilization study immobilized 51 free-ranging gray wolves with a combination of tiletamine hydrochloride and zolazepam hydrochlorides and did not observe adverse effects.
