How common is it to use butorphanol as preop. medication and at what strength? Is it contraindicated for seizures?
My dog needs surgery and I want to know if it's safe.
Thanks for your help!
It is fairly common to use butorphanol as a preanesthetic and it is not contraindicated in animals with seizures. The dose is 0.05 mg/kg IV. There are other recommend doses as well. vetcare
