PRODUCT INFORMATION

CII

FOR EUTHANASIA OF ANIMALS

Non-Sterile Powder

When powder is reconstituted to 250 mL with water, each mL contains 392 mg sodium pentobarbital.

  • Highest potency of pentobarbital available which provides the most humane euthanasia possible.
  • The sequence of rapid and painless euthanasia is as follows:
     
    Within seconds the animal loses consciousness and this stage rapidly progresses to deep anesthesia. A few minutes later both cardiac and respiratory activity cease and cerebral death ensues.
  • Excellent "syringeability".
  • For use in all non-food animal species*.
  • Economical: one 250 mL vial will humanely euthanize up to one hundred, 25 lb. animals.

Potency guaranteed for 120 days after reconstitution.

Caution

Federal law restricts this drug to use by or on the order of a licensed veterinarian.

POISON

KEEP OUT OF THE REACH OF CHILDREN

Directions for Mixing

Add water slowly to between the 150 mL and 200 mL lines. After replacing cap, shake well to dissolve all of the powder. Fill to the 250 mL line ONLY with more water. (DO NOT FILL ABOVE THE 250 mL LINE). A bluish-red dye is included in the formulation to help distinguish it from parenteral drugs intended for therapeutic use.

Dosage and Administration

Inject 1 mL for each 10 pounds of body weight (minimum 1 mL). Intravenous injection is preferred. Intraperitoneal or intracardiac injections may be made when intravenous injection is impractical, as in a very small dog or cat, or in a comatose dog or cat with impaired vascular functions.

How Supplied

98 Grams of powder for reconstitution in 250 mL multiple dose plastic vials, packed 12 vials per case. D.E.A. Form No. 222 required to purchase.

Warning

For animal euthanasia only. Must not be used for therapeutic purposes. Do not use in animals intended for food. If eye contact, flush with water and seek medical advice/attention.

Environmental Hazard: This product is toxic to wildlife. Birds and mammals feeding on treated animals may be killed. Euthanized animals must be properly disposed of by deep burial, incineration, or other method in compliance with state and local laws to prevent consumption of carcass material by scavenging wildlife.
