I wonder, since it seems to be so common as to be called routine, if the usual "mostly Dorm with a spritz of Xylacine" cocktail would work the same administered this way, rather than as the usual IV dose?
Thanks for your review and comment. I've not come across anything regarding Xylazine being offered as a sublingual gel as Detomidine is with Dermosedan or even as a gel cocktail. The article compares the administration of Detomidine as a gel to intravenously with the discovery that it is more effective when given to female equines via the vaginal mucous membranes over sublingually or intravenously. From personal experience I've found trying to administer any gel under the tongue to be challenging with those equines I've had to administer it to. I was most pleased to discover this alternate route which is VERY easy with the mares I care for as they are all familiar with having their female parts handled.
