AbstractA combination of 100 mg/mi of ketamine hydrochloride (Ket) and 20 mg/mi of xyiazine hydrochloride (Xyi) was used to im­ mobilize coypus (Myocastor coypus). Eight ma­ ture coypus (four males and four femaies) were injected intramuscularly with doses ranging from 2.33 to 6.25 mg/kg of KET and 0.25 to 0.86 mg/kg of Xyl. The mean (±SE) time for in­ duction, arousal, and recovery were 7.3 ± 2 mm, 23.5 ± 0.3 mm and 46 ± 2.5 mm, respectively. The mean ± SE doses injected were 4.07 ± 0.52 mg/kg Ket (range, 2.33 to 6.25 mg/kg) and 0.5 ± 0.08 mg/kg Xyl (range, 0.25 to 0.86 mg/kg). No adverse responses were observed in any of the animals treated.
