The butyrophenone tranquilliser, azaperone, was administered intramuscularly to ponies in five series of experiments, using a dose level of 0-4 mg/kg once and 0-8 mg/kg four times. An excellent or good sedative effect was usually obtained with both dose levels, but the response was more consistent with the higher dose. The onset of sedation was apparent within 10 min of administration, the maximal effect usually occurring between 20 and 60 min while sedation was no longer apparent after 2 to 6… Expand
EFFECTS OF AZAPERONE ON CARDIOVASCULAR AND RESPIRATORY FUNCTIONS IN THE HORSE
TLDR
The butyrophenone tranquillizer, azaperone, was administered intramuscularly to ponies and its effects on cardiovascular and respiratory functions assessed, and possible mechanisms underlying the cardiovascular changes are discussed. Expand
Butorphanol-Azaperone-Medetomidine for the Immobilization of Rhesus Macaques (Macaca mulatta).
TLDR
Given the results of this study, the recommendation regarding the use of 16- or 24-μL/kg BAM for immobilizing rhesus macaques is dependent on caution regarding cardiopulmonary parameters and the provision of supplemental oxygen. Expand
Paradoxical excitement following the intravenous administration of azaperone in the horse.
The rapid intravenous administration of the butyrophenone tranquilliser, azaperone, at a dose rate of 0.29-0.57 mg/kg body weight resulted in the immediate onset of excitement and ataxia of varyingExpand
Evaluation of butorphanol-azaperone-medetomidine (BAM) in captive blesbok immobilization (Damaliscus pygargus phillipsi).
TLDR
The BAM combination proved to be reliable and effective in blesbok and the recovery time after administering naltrexone and atipamezole was 4.8 ± 0.7 minutes. Expand
Accidental Overdose of Pergolide (Prascend) Followed by Loss of Appetite, Tachycardia, and Behavioral Abnormalities in a Pony Mare.
TLDR
To the authors' knowledge this is the first report with a severe overdose of pergolide (Prascend) per os and the only abnormalities noticed 24 hours after ingestion were a decreased appetite and anxiety, possibly a dopaminergic central nervous effect. Expand
EVALUATION OF TWO MEDETOMIDINE-AZAPERONE-ALFAXALONE COMBINATIONS IN CAPTIVE ROCKY MOUNTAIN ELK (CERVUS ELAPHUS NELSONI)
TLDR
Both alfaxalone and azaperone combinations provided deep sedation and the ability to perform minor procedures in captive elk, with acceptable cardiopulmonary parameters as long as supplemental oxygen was provided. Expand
Cardiovascular Effects of the Tranquilizers
TLDR
These agents have a profound effect on the cardiovascular system in addition to, or perhaps because of, their CNS activity, which indicates a primary mode of action on certain functions of the central nervous system. Expand
Identification of metabolites of azaperone in horse urine.
TLDR
Two metabolites of the tranquilizer azaperone were extracted from alkalinized horse urine after treatment with beta-glucuronidase/sulfatase from limpets (Patella vulgata) by a combination of independent chemical synthesis and GC/MS and 1H NMR analysis. Expand
BUTORPHANOL AND AZAPERONE AS A SAFE ALTERNATIVE FOR REPEATED CHEMICAL RESTRAINT IN CAPTIVE WHITE RHINOCEROS (CERATOTHERIUM SIMUM)
  • R. Radcliffe, S. Ferrell, S. Childs
  • Medicine
  • Journal of zoo and wildlife medicine : official publication of the American Association of Zoo Veterinarians
  • 2000
TLDR
Butorphanol and azaperone produced adequate muscle relaxation and apparently adequate analgesia for minor surgical interferences, including abdominal laparoscopy, and Respiratory rates and Spo2 measurements were improved compared with reports of using more potent opioids in this species. Expand
Influence of anaesthetics and ancillary agents on cardiovascular and respiratory systems in the horse
There are several reasons why pharmacologists and anaesthetists devote much of their time to studying changes in cardiovascular and respiratory functions following the administration of anaestheticsExpand
