The very nature of zoos requires safe means by which animals can be captured for transport or receive veterinary care. Chemical immobilization reduces stress and allows for the safe care of zoo animals, but it also protects professionals who must care for these animals.
Over the years, Wildlife Pharmaceuticals, Inc. has developed in-depth knowledge and expertise in the field of chemical immobilization of wildlife. This has allowed us to research and provide state-of-the-art immobilization drugs. Among our line is Carfentanil citrate - an ultra-fast acting and extremely potent synthetic opiate for the immobilization of Cervidae, Naltrexone hydrochloride - a pure opioid antagonist for the reversal of Carfentanil, Xylazine hydrochloride - an alpha agonist with sedative, analgesic and muscle relaxant properties, and Yohimbine hydrochloride in the most concentrated form of yohimbine available to reverse xylazine sedation.
