Evaluation of two different etorphine doses combined with azaperone in blesbok (Damaliscus pygargus phillipsi) immobilisation.

Eugenio Gaudio, Liesel L Laubscher, Leith C R Meyer, Louwrens C Hoffman, Jacobus P Raath, Silke Pfitzer,

Chemical immobilisation is essential for veterinarians to perform medical procedures in wild African ungulates. Potent opioids combined with neuroleptic drugs are most often used for this purpose. The present study aimed at comparing the quality of immobilisation and effects on physiological variables between a high (high etorphine-azaperone [HE]: 0.09 mg ... Read more >>

EVALUATING THE USE OF A BUTORPHANOL-AZAPERONE-MEDETOMIDINE FIXED-DOSE COMBINATION FOR STANDING SEDATION IN AFRICAN ELEPHANTS (LOXODONTA AFRICANA).

Liesel L Laubscher, Silke Pfitzer, Peter S Rogers, Lisa L Wolfe, Michael W Miller, Aleksandr Semjonov, Jacobus P Raath,

This study investigated the use of a fixed-dose combination of 30 mg/ml butorphanol, 12 mg/ml azaperone, and 12 mg/ml medetomidine for the standing sedation of captive African elephants (<i>Loxodonta africana</i>). In total, seven females (mean age 19.6 yr; range 6-31 yr) and six males (mean age 33.5 yr; range 9-35 ... Read more >>

Immobilization quality and cardiopulmonary effects of etorphine alone compared with etorphine-azaperone in blesbok (Damaliscus pygargus phillipsi).

Eugenio Gaudio, Liesel L Laubscher, Silke Pfitzer, Jacobus P Raath, Louw C Hoffman, Giulia M De Benedictis,

<h4>Objective</h4>To evaluate the immobilization quality and cardiopulmonary effects of etorphine alone compared with etorphine-azaperone in blesbok (Damaliscus pygargus phillipsi).<h4>Study design</h4>Blinded, randomized, crossover design.<h4>Animals</h4>A total of 12 boma-habituated female blesbok weighing [mean ± standard deviation (SD)] 57.5 ± 2.5 kg.<h4>Methods</h4>Each animal was administered etorphine (0.09 mg kg<sup>-1</sup>) or etorphine-azaperone (0.09 mg ...

THE EFFECT OF A SLOW-RELEASE FORMULATION OF ZUCLOPENTHIXOL ACETATE (ACUNIL®) ON CAPTIVE BLUE WILDEBEEST (CONNOCHAETES TAURINUS) BEHAVIOR AND PHYSIOLOGICAL RESPONSE.

Liesel L Laubscher, Louwrens C Hoffman, Neville I Pitts, Jacobus P Raath,

The study investigated the effect of a slow-release formulation of zuclopenthixol acetate (Acunil®) on blue wildebeest ( Connochaetes taurinus ) in captivity. Two groups of trials were conducted using either Acunil or a placebo (control). Animals (Acunil: n = 17; placebo: n = 12) were observed for a 12-hr period ... Read more >>

Validating a human biotelemetry system for use in captive blue wildebeest (Connochaetes taurinus).

Liesel L Laubscher, Louwrens C Hoffman, Neville I Pitts, Jacobus P Raath,

We fitted two blue wildebeest (Connochaetes taurinus) with modified versions of the Equivital™ EQ02 wireless monitoring system to evaluate if the device could accurately measure heart rate and respiration rate in this species whilst anaesthetized as well as whilst fully conscious in captivity. Whilst under anaesthesia, we monitored each animal's ... Read more >>
