Tranquilizer for canine, feline, equine, cattle, sheep, swine
Acepet Injectable (Acetylpromazine Maleate) is a phenothiazine derived with a greater potency than chlorpromazine and promazine.
It is a major tranquilizer (neuroleptic) whose main action is to alter the patient’s temperament decreasing’s response to environmental stimuli.
It is a selective CNS depressant, depresses the limbic system by disrupting connections between it and the reticular system, which produces a state of stillness with decreased anxiety, excitement and aggression, thereby facilitating the animal’s handling, transportation and adaptation to new environments. While it decreases the spontaneous motor activity, when used in small and medium doses it induces sleep so there is no loss of consciousness. Acepet Injectable increases the activity of analgesics, sedatives and anesthetics.
