Sedalin Gel is supplied in a graduated plastic syringe and used to sedate horses. The syringe can be inserted into the corner of the mouth to deposit the palatable gel into a cheak pouch, or Sedalin Gel can be added to food. The active ingredient is ACP (acepromazine) and this produces sedation within 15 to 30 minutes, which lasts for up to 6 or 7 hours. Increasing the dose will increase the level of sedation and prolong the period of effect.

55 Good enough to knock out an elephant

By on 20 July 2018

Fantastic but use sparingly if using for the first time.
We used this to sedate our 5yo Teddy on the advice of our vet. He was going to be travelling quite a distance (his only 2 other times travelling were less than a mile). We measured out his dose (he's a big 17.2 draft but we only gave him what we would have given his mother - a TB 15.2 mare - as he hadn't had it before.
His mum (who can be stressy had the same dose - she was nice and calm) loaded fine.
Teddy however looked like he'd come fresh from Woodstock!
He was so calm but had no idea how to move his back legs. At one point he just fell to the side and let out a big snore!
It was clear he was too spaced out to load and travel so we led him back to his field, unloaded him mum and left them happily grazing.
Had we given him the full dose I think he'd have rolled over and just slept on the floor.
So it's great stuff but if you haven't used it before I'd use it sparingly for the first time to see how your hose reacts.

Great product perfect for a prolonged (1-2 hours) period of sedation eg travelling youngsters first time. Packaging says 30 mins after dosing but I find 45-60 mins provides a more deep seated sedation. Tube has ten individual notches - you can give more or less depending on how sedated you want your horse.

Q & A

Below are some recent questions we've received regarding Sedalin Gel for Horses, including answers from our team.

Would this be ok to use for a nervous horse being clipped?
She is normally sedated by vets for this but it costs me so much money and she needs clipping again

  • VioVet Staff

Sedalin will take the edge off a nervous horse when being clipped but is no where near as potent as a true sedative. There is also a huge variation in its effect on different horses. The only way to know is to give it a go. The other option is Domosedan gel which is stronger and goes under the horses tongue. Both of these products will require a prescription from your vet. Hope this helps. Good luck.

If you were to use sedaline on a pony in shock or with severe emotional excitation, what possible reactions or outcomes would there be?

  • VioVet Staff

In this situation, the Sedalin might appear to be ineffective, or alternatively might have a more pronounced and prolonged effect. You might see excessive staggering about, or the horse getting cold and then shivering, or other unwanted effects. Essentially it should only be used in horses which are well, although any adverse effects usually get better on their own soon afterwards.

Hi would this be an adequate sedation for my sec d cob to have his teeth done this is the first time he has had his teeth done his previous owner never bothered he can be quiet bolshy and panic in new situations and I know he won't appreciate having the gag on tia

  • VioVet Staff

Horses vary in how they respond to this as a sedative. It seems to work better in some than others. Also of course the way the horse is handled makes a big difference. Ideally your own vet should be advising you on this subject as Sedalin and any more potent alternatives are prescription only. They should be prescribed taking into account your individual animal and situation, which only your own vet can assess. For the average horse Sedalin is adequate though.

I am going to use Sedalin to clip pony at 0930 ,planning on giving it to him 30 mins prior ,no feed ,hay etc ,daughter keen to ride in the afternoon ,1230 ish !! What time line is safe for her to do so ,or do I wait till Sunday ?? Many thanks

  • VioVet Staff

I would have to advise that stumbling is slightly more likely to occur even after a pony appears to have recovered. This could possibly result in injury to pony or rider. Personally I would not advise riding on the same day after giving this product. Sorry!
