DORMOSEDAN GEL® (detomidine hydrochloride) is a convenient solution when your horses occasionally need a mild, standing sedative prior to certain stressful situations or minor, (nonpainful) husbandry procedures.

Obtained only through a veterinary prescription, DORMOSEDAN GEL is a single-dose syringe and is easy enough for horse owners to administer themselves.

Depending on the horse’s specific needs, DORMOSEDAN GEL® (detomidine hydrochloride) is an effective standing sedation for use prior to stressful situations and minor, (nonpainful) husbandry procedures, including:

  • Shoeing
  • Body clipping
  • Bridle path trimming
  • Mane pulling
  • Sheath cleaning
  • First-time turnouts for fractious horses

It’s important to withhold food and water until the sedative effect of the product has worn off. When used prior to first-time turnouts, horse should be supervised to prevent grazing until the sedative has worn off.

DORMOSEDAN GEL has not been shown to provide analgesia and should not be used for painful procedures. DORMOSEDAN GEL should not be used with other sedative drugs because the effects may be additive. 

Dosing Reference Guide

DORMOSEDAN GEL® (detomidine hydrochloride) is administered sublingually at 40 mcg/kg (18 mcg/lb), and the dosing syringe delivers the product in 0.25 mL increments.
