Federal law restricts this drug to use by or on the order of a licensed veterinarian. Do not use in cervidae less than 15 days before, or during, the hunting season.

Careful consideration should be given before administering to horses or Cervidae with significantly depressed respiration, severe pathologic heart disease, advanced liver or kidney disease, severe endotoxic or traumatic shock, or stress conditions such as extreme heat, cold, high altitude, or fatigue. Do not use XylaMed in conjunction with tranquilizers. Analgesic effect is variable, and depth should be carefully assayed prior to surgical/clinical procedures. Variability of analgesia occurs most frequently at the distal extremities of horses and Cervidae. In spite of sedation, the practitioner and handlers should proceed with caution since defense reactions may not be diminished.
