Propofol.

(a) Specifications. Each milliliter of emulsion contains 10 milligrams (mg) propofol.

(b) Sponsors. See sponsor numbers in § 510.600(c) of this chapter.

(1) No. 059130 for use as in paragraph (c) of this section.

(2) No. 000074 for use as in paragraphs (c)(1)(i), (c)(2), and (c)(3) of this section.

(c) Conditions of use in dogs and cats—(1) Amount. The drug is administered by intravenous injection as follows:

(i) Dogs. For induction of general anesthesia without the use of preanesthetics the dosage is 5.5 to 7.0 mg per kilogram (mg/kg) (2.5 to 3.2 mg/pound (lb)); for the maintenance of general anesthesia without the use of preanesthetics the dosage is 1.1 to 3.3 mg/kg (0.5 to 1.5 mg/lb).

(2) Indications for use. As a single injection to provide general anesthesia for short procedures; for induction and maintenance of general anesthesia using incremental doses to effect; for induction of general anesthesia where maintenance is provided by inhalant anesthetics.

(3) Limitations. Federal law restricts this drug to use by or on the order of a licensed veterinarian.
