Texas MK Kits are a very safe and effective combination of two different drugs. Medetomidine HCI and Ketamine HCI, which are used to immobilize a wide range of animals from whitetail deer, to exotic animals, to cattle. Texas MK Kits provide great anesthesia, which in turn provides an excellent and quick recovery for the animal. Texas MK Kits can easily be reversed with an injection of Antipamezole HCI. The following is included in the kit:
30cc vol of Medetomidine HCI & Ketamine HCI
30cc vol of Atpamezole HCI
Each kit contains two separate vials: one bottle of MK (Red & White Labels) Medetomidine HCI and Ketamine HCI, and the second bottle is the reversal – Antipamezole HCI (Green & White Labels) To keep it simple and avoid getting the drugs confused, Red labels mean STOP and green labels mean GO. (1.4cc per 100lbs of body weight) Antipamezole Reversal is given on a 1:1 ratio so 1cc of MK Reversal with 1cc of Antipamezole. Recommended dosage is as follows:
- Small Fawn 0.50cc
- Doe 1.00c
- Mature Doe 1.50cc
- Small Buck 1.50cc
- Mature Buck 2.00cc
**Recommendations reflect average dosage for whitetail deer**
**Always follow veterinarian advice**
Note: Store MK Reverse at room temperature (72 degrees) and protect from UV light exposure.
