ANESTHESIA OF MOOSE FOR VASECTOMY USING CARFENTANIL/XYLAZINE AND REVERSAL WITH NALOXONE/YOHIMBINE
We report on the use of a mixture of carfentanil hydrochloride and xylazine hydrochloride to anesthetize 2 adult male moose (Alces alces) for surgical vasectomy and the subsequent reversal of these drugs with a mixture of naloxone hydrochloride and yohimbine hydrochloride. Induction, relaxation, reversal, and recovery were considered ideal. With minor downward dosage adjustment, we recommend the outlined methodology for surgical procedures in moose.
