    Default Xylazine reversal in beef cattle?

    I know that you can use Yohimbine as a reversal for xylazine in small animals and horses. Can you use it in food producing animals though?

    Default Xylazine reversal in cattle

    Yohimbine can be used in large animals as a xylazine reversal. However, this is an off-label use in the United States and as such, AMDUCA guidelines must be followed. Published dose for cattle is .125mg/kg IV (Plumb, 1999). Tolazoline is also off-label, published dose is 2-4 mg/kg slow IV (Plumb 1999).
