author keywords: hyperexcitation; muscle tremors; alfaxalone; sedation; psittacine; avian; Quaker parrot; Myiopsitta monachus
MeSH headings : Adjuvants, Anesthesia / administration & dosage; Analysis of Variance; Anesthetics / administration & dosage; Animals; Dose-Response Relationship, Drug; Female; Heart Rate / drug effects; Hypnotics and Sedatives / administration & dosage; Injections, Intramuscular / veterinary; Male; Midazolam / administration & dosage; Parrots / physiology; Preanesthetic Medication / veterinary; Pregnanediones / administration & dosage; Respiration / drug effects
TL;DR: Alfaxalone as a sole agent resulted in muscle tremors and hyperexcitation during induction, which was attenuated by premedication with midazolam, and further investigation is warranted to characterize the effects of alfaxalone and drugs used to premedicate Quaker parrots.

By: S. Hoppes*, K. Flammer*, K. Hoersch, M. Papich* & J. Paul-Murphy

author keywords: fentanyl; opioids; analgesia; pharmacokinetics; psittaciformes; cockatoo; Cacatua alba
TL;DR: Although the 0.2 mg/kg SC dose provided significant analgesia in some birds, fentanyl at this dose is not recommended as a routine analgesic agent because a large volume of drug must be injected and this dose causes hyperactivity in some Birds. (via Semantic Scholar)
