For premedication Dorbene vet 1 mg/ml should be administered at a dosage of 10-40 µg medetomidine hydrochloride per kg body weight, corresponding to 0.1-0.4 ml Dorbene vet 1 mg/ml per 10 kg body weight. The exact dose depends on the combination of drugs used and the dosage(s) of the other drug(s). The dose should furthermore be adjusted to the type of surgery, length of procedure and patient temperament and weight. Premedication with medetomidine will significantly reduce the dosage of the induction agent required and will reduce volatile anaesthetic requirements for maintenance anaesthesia. All anaesthetic agents used for induction or maintenance of anaesthesia should be administered to effect. Before using any combinations, product literature for the other products should be observed.

Cats: For moderate-deep sedation and restraint of cats Dorbene vet 1 mg/ml should be administered at a dosage of 50 – 150 µg medetomidine hydrochloride / kg bw (corresp. to 0.05 – 0.15 ml Dorbene vet 1 mg/ml / kg bw). The speed of induction is slower when subcutaneous route of administration is used. For anaesthesia Dorbene vet 1 mg/ml should be administered at a dosage of 80 µg medetomidine hydrochloride / kg bw (corresp. to 0.08 ml Dorbene vet 1 mg/ml / kg bw) and 2.5 to 7.5 mg ketamine / kg bw. Using this dosage anaesthesia occurs within 3 – 4 minutes and is apparent for 20 – 50 minutes. For longer lasting procedures administration has to be repeated by using ½ of the initial dose (i.e. 40 µg medetomidine hydrochloride (corresp. to 0.04 ml Dorbene / kg bw) and 2.5 - 3.75 mg ketamine / kg bw) or 3.0 mg ketamine / kg bw alone. Alternatively, for longer lasting procedures anaesthesia may be extended by use of the inhalation agents isoflurane or halothane, with oxygen or oxygen/nitrous oxide.

Animals should be fasted 12 hours before anaesthesia.
