    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.

(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.
