Cardiac arrhythmias may occur following administration of xylazine in some species. Xylazine may cause severe respiratory depression if administered in combination with barbiturates or alphaxalone/alphadolone. In species that vomit, medetomidine and xylazine often trigger this reflex. Special Comments Xylazine is a useful sedative in cattle, sheep, goats, horses, cats and primates. It may also be a valuable (but relatively short acting) analgesic in sheep and goats (Grant and Upton, 2004). , 2008).
A similar diuresis has been observed by the author during ketamine/xylazine anaesthesia in rats and mice. Medetomidine has similar effects to xylazine, but it is a much more specific alpha-2 agonist and is therefore claimed to have a lower incidence of side-effects (Virtanen, 1989).
