It was concluded from clinical experiences with 225 horses that azaperone, given i/m 5-10 minutes before an i/v dose of 6 ml Polamivet per 100 kg body wt, provided useful sedation and analgesia prior to local anaesthesia for minor, but painful operations, such as castration (125 cases) and laryngoscopy (29 cases), on the standing animal.
