In all cases where the use of a sedative is indicated, e.g. during transport, horseshoeing, operations (dehorning). As a pre-anaesthetic by operations (e.g. sectio caesaria).



Use during the last month of pregnancy (cattle), lung- and heart failures; Oesophageal obstruction, torsion of the stomach, and hernia (because of vomiting); administration in combination with neuroleptica.



Depression of heart-rate, blood pressure and respiration (when given in high doses), tympany (in ruminants) and in case of pyometritis, hypersensitivity to xylazine may occur.
