10 mg/mL Alfaxalone
Alfaxan is an injectable steroid anaesthetic for use in dogs and cats. Alfaxan can be used:
- As an induction agent prior to gaseous anaesthesia, or
- As a sole anaesthetic agent for the induction and maintenance of anaesthesia for the performance of examination or surgical procedures.
The intramuscular route is useful to induce sedation in the cat to facilitate handling, detailed clinical examination and the practice of any procedure that requires a high degree of restraint rather than complete surgical anaesthesia.
