Butorphanol tartrate is a synthetically derived opioid agonist-antagonist analgesic of the phenanthrene series, with a potency of about four to seven times that of morphine. In combination with medetomidine HCL (10 MG/ML) and ketamine HCL (50 MG/ML), the three provide a safe and gentler induction and excellent recovery results.

By using the MKB™ kit from NexGen Pharmaceuticals, wildlife handlers are able to induce a reversible sedation, with inductions times ranging from 3 to 5 minutes and working times of 10 to15 minutes. The benefits of using these sedations is the ability for the animal to recover on its own if the handler does happen to lose the animal after darting it. MKB™ offers smooth induction with faster reversal times than regular MK due to the lower concentration of ketamine. The handler gets all the benefits of a traditional MK Kit (medetomidine/ketamine) knockdown, but with better reversal times.

The preferred route for the administration of an immobilizing drug by remote delivery is via intramuscular injection. The aim is to hit the animal in a specifically-selected site, causing injection into vascular tissue and facilitating rapid absorption of the drug. Not all areas of an animal’s body are equally well-suited for injection by remote delivery; thus, the injection site should be carefully chosen.
