Tzed™ (tiletamine and zolazepam for injection)
Tzed is indicated in dogs for restraint and minor procedures of short duration (30 min. avg.) requiring mild to moderate analgesia. Minor surgery is considered to be laceration repair, draining of abscesses, castrations and other procedures requiring mild to moderate analgesia (See Dogs under Dosage and Administration). Tzed administered intravenously is indicated in dogs for induction of anesthesia followed by maintenance with an inhalant anesthetic.
Tzed is indicated in cats for restraint or for anthesthesia combined with muscle relaxation.
Important safety information
As with all drugs, side effects may occur. For use IM in cats. For use IM and IV in dogs. Tzed should not be used in dogs and cats with pancreatic disease, renal pathology or impairment of renal function, or severe cardiac or pulmonary dysfunction. Do not use at any stage of pregnancy or for Caesarean section. Do not use phenothiazine‐derivative drugs concomitantly with Tzed as the combination produces respiratory and myocardial depression, hypotension, and hypothermia. Pulmonary edema has been reported in cats. Respiratory depression may occur following administration of high doses of Tzed. Copious salivation may occur during Tzed anesthesia and may be controlled by giving atropine sulfate, USP as a concurrent medication.
