DORMOSEDAN GEL® (detomidine hydrochloride) is a safe and effective mild standing sedative for use prior to routine horse care procedures. On occasions when your horse becomes nervous, frightened or won’t cooperate, DORMOSEDAN GEL can help restore safety for you and your horse.
This FDA-approved oral sedative can be safely administered by horse owners with the easy-to-use dosing syringe. The syringe looks and acts much like a deworming syringe. However, unlike a dewormer, DORMOSEDAN GEL is administered under the tongue for absorption through the horse’s mucous membranes.
IMPORTANT SAFETY INFORMATION Do not use DORMOSEDAN GEL in horses with pre-existing atrioventricular (AV) or sinoatrial (SA) block, with severe coronary insufficiency, cerebrovascular disease, respiratory disease, or chronic renal failure. Do not use in anesthetized or sedated horses, or in conditions of shock, severe debilitation or stress due to extreme heat, cold, fatigue or high altitude. Do not use in horses intended for human consumption. Handle gel-dosing syringes with caution to avoid direct exposure to skin, eyes or mouth. See full Prescribing Information.
