DES CRIPTION:
AceproJect (acepromazine maleate injection), a potent neuroleptic
agent with a low order of toxicity, is
of particular value in the tranquilization of dogs, cats and horses.
Its rapid action and lack of hypnotic
effect are added advantages. According to Baker,
the scope of possible applications for this
compound in veterinary practice is only limited by the imagination of
the practitioner.
EACH ML CONTAINS: Acepromazine maleate 10 mg, sodium citrate 0.36%,
citric acid 0.075%, benzyl
alcohol 1% and water for injection.
Acepromazine [10-[3-(dimethylamino) propyl] phenothiazin-2-yl-methyl
ketone] Maleate, USP has the
following chemical structure:
AceproJect has a depressant effect on the central nervous system and,
therefore, causes sedation,
muscular relaxation and a reduction in spontaneous activity. It acts
rapidly, exerting a prompt and
pronounced calming effect.
