I've used BAM to knock one down and then administered Ketamine while performing surgery on a buck. Buck was out for close to an hour before reversing. Be *careful when reversing, as Ketamine can cause violent actions when waking due to Ketamine not being fully gone. For a short knockdown I wouldn't use any Ketamine.

Actually I wouldn't use xylazine either, BAM is 100 times safer.

I would NEVER EVER use Ketamine again. I helped someone else who used it on adult bucks. It was nuts! I used it on a fawn once. I damn near cried I felt so bad for the fawn. Ketamine is pure garbage as far as I am concerned.

problem is with xylazine you want to reverse as soon as possible


*


with ketamine you NEED to let the drug wear off before reversing the xylazine, too soon and you get a violent reversal. Not good.


*


I've used ketamine 3-4 times on deer we were performing surgery on for extended time, no problems with reversal.*


*


I have seen a fawn killed with ketamine used by a dog/cat vet who read on internet to use it. Ugly, ugly, death.

My favorite is bam but when i don't have it on hand I use straight xylazine all the time without any problems.

Hi Bogart,


As inventors of BAM, I wanted to advise you that our patented anesthesia combination is available in Canada!


Chiron Compounding Pharmacy in Guelph has an exclusive BAM license for Canada.


Just contact them at 1 800 446 8689 and ask for Scott Fraser the PharmD.


He'll be glad to help.

Best,


Steve
