This study was designed to compare the effects of three doses of romifidine (200, 400 and 600 μg/kg) with medetomidine (80 μg/kg) administered intramuscularly to five cats. The quality of sedation and the cardiovascular and respiratory effects of each treatment were evaluated, and the onset and duration of the sedation, and the cats' recovery times, were measured. Cardiorespiratory variables were also analysed. The dose of 200 μg/kg romifidine was clinically superior to the other doses of… Expand
Sedative effects of three doses of romifidine in comparison with medetomidine in cats.
TLDR
Doses of romifidine considerably lower than those investigated by previous authors give a clinically useful level of sedation, and their use might result in less side effects and a quicker recovery. Expand
Anaesthetic and cardiorespiratory effects of romifidine/ketamine combinations in cats.
TLDR
Anaesthesia produced by the studied combinations of romifidine and ketamine may only be reliable when conducting brief and noninvasive procedures in cats. Expand
Evaluation of cardiorespiratory effects of combinations of dexmedetomidine and atropine in cats
TLDR
Although premedication with atropine in cats sedated with dexmedetomidine prevents bradycardia, it induces hypertension and increases myocardial oxygen consumption and the magnitude of cardiovascular effects produced by dexmedETomidine in cats does not seem to be dose-related. Expand
Effect of Intramuscular Medetomidine Administration on Tear Flow in Rats
TLDR
The results indicated that the intramuscular administration of medetomidine in rats decreased tear flow significantly in a dose-dependent manner. Expand
Evaluation of a ketamine-propofol drug combination with or without dexmedetomidine for intravenous anesthesia in cats undergoing ovariectomy.
TLDR
Total IV anesthesia with a ketamine-propofol combination, with or without dexmedetomidine, appeared to be effective in healthy cats, and these short-term infusions produced smooth recovery and adequate analgesia during the postoperative period. Expand
Effects of medetomidine and ketamine on the regional cerebral blood flow in cats: a SPECT study.
TLDR
This study showed that caution is needed when quantifying brain perfusion indices when using sedative or anaesthetic agents that may affect rCBF. Expand

Sedative, analgesic and cardiorespiratory effects of romifidine in cats.
TLDR
Bradycardia is the most important adverse effect after IM administration of romifidine at doses ranging from 100 to 400 microg kg (-1) or 1 mg kg(-1) of xylazine in cats. Expand
Investigation of romifidine and detomidine for the clinical sedation of horses
The effects of two intravenous doses of romifidine (80 and 120 μg/kg) and one dose of detomidine (20 μg/kg) were compared in a blinded study in 30 horses requiring to be sedated for routine dentalExpand
Sedative effects of romifidine in the dog.
TLDR
The sedative and physiological effects of romifidine in dogs appear to be similar to other alpha2-adrenoceptor agonists, and intravenous administration provided sedation which might be clinically useful. Expand
Sedative and analgesic effects of detomidine and romifidine in horses
TLDR
Instability and ataxia were more pronounced with detomidine than with romifidine but the effects were only slight to moderate and not regarded as a hindrance to procedures for which sedation is needed. Expand
Medetomidine, a new sedative-analgesic for use in the dog and its reversal with atipamezole
TLDR
The sedative and physiological effects of intramuscular medetomidine in dogs were compared with those of xylazine and atipamezole, as an antagonist given 15 or 45 minutes after medetamidine was studied, reversed the sedative effects of medetOMidine. Expand

TLDR
Romifidine (10, 20, or 40 microg/kg, IM) is an effective sedative in dogs, but causes a decrease in heart rate, respiratory rate, and rectal temperature. Expand
Sedative effects of intramuscular administration of a low dose of romifidine in dogs.
TLDR
Romifidine (10, 20, or 40 microg/kg, IM) is an effective sedative in dogs, but causes a decrease in heart rate, respiratory rate, and rectal temperature. Expand
Cardiovascular effects of romifidine in the standing horse.
TLDR
There were minimal differences between the two doses of romifidine, and both should be used with care especially in horses with cardiovascular compromise, or when used in combination with other cardiovascular depressant drugs. Expand
Effects of medetomidine and buprenorphine administered for sedation in dogs.
TLDR
Animals that were anaesthetised required much less thiopentone than the 10 mg/kg recommended after premedication with acepromazine maleate, and mean sedation scores were increased in all groups. Expand
Sedative and analgesic effects of medetomidine in dogs.
TLDR
Medetomidine possessed an excellent sedative effect associated with analgesia in dogs and was dose-dependent, which affected the posture of the dogs and the relaxation variable. Expand
