Acepran® 0,2%

Neuroleptic, tranquilizer and preanesthetic

DESCRIPTION

Acepromazine is a phenothiazine derivative of the third series (adrenolytic) frequently used in the anesthetic routine due to its tranquilizing effect and for the potentiation of barbiturate, nonbarbiturate and dissociative anesthetic agents. Phenothiazines have little analgesic activity. The main activity of acepromazine is to block the postsynaptic mesolimbic dopaminergic receptors in the brain. A deficiency of dopamine, a catecholamine neurotransmitter, causes symptoms such as dysmetry, ambulation, apathy, indifference to the environment, drowsiness and lateral decubitus. As an antiemetic, phenothiazines inhibit the medullary zone from triggering vomiting.

INDICATIONS

Acepran® 0,2% is indicated for dogs as a sedative and tranquilizer to facilitate diagnostic procedures, containment for exams and x-rays, treatment of wounds and abscesses, to advance a urethral catheter and where a tranquilizing effect and indifference to external stimulus is required. Acepran® 0,2% is especially recommended in the transport of animals, because it promotes tranquility, sleep and antiemetic activity.

DIRECTIONS FOR USE

To be used by intravenous or intramuscular route. The dose should be established individually, depending on the degree of tranquilization required.
Dogs: administer 0,05 to 0,2 mg/kg of body weight, or 0,025 to 0,1 mL per kg of body weight, depending on the depth and duration of sedation required. For large dogs (over 30kg): we recommend using the smaller dose range. Sedative effects start from 2 to 13 minutes after intravenous administration and 6 to 18 minutes after administration by intramuscular route, providing 40 to 140 minutes and 60 to 130 minutes of sedation, respectively.
