TL;DR: It is suggested that butorphanol does not routinely need to be antagonized in captive servals that are anesthetized with these dosages of ketamine, medetomidine, andbutorphanol, and it may be more important to administer opioid antagonists in free-ranging animals, where residual sedation would be more detrimental.

TL;DR: Results indicate that MGA contraception can lead to lesions that may permanently impair the fertility of females, and if long-term contraception of zoo canids is necessary, the use of alternate methods of reproductive control such as gonadotropin-releasing hormone (GnRH) analogs or GnRH vaccines that reduce gonadal hormone exposure should be pursued.
