Medetomidine Hydrochloride (medetomidine hydrochloride) is a synthetic alpha 2-adrenoreceptor agonist with sedative and analgesic properties. Medetomidine is used by veterinarians as both a surgical anesthetic and analgesic. The pharmacological restraint and pain relief provided by medetomidine facilitates handling and aids in the conduct of diagnostic or therapeutic procedures. It also facilitates minor surgical procedures (with or without local anesthesia) and dental care where intubation is not required. Medetomidine 0.5 mg/ml injectable by NexGen is indicated for use as a sedative and analgesic to facilitate clinical examinations, clinical procedures, minor surgical procedures not requiring muscle relaxation, and minor dental procedures where intubation is not required.
