    Abstract

    Three klipspringer (Oreotragus oreotragus) were blowdarted with a combination of medetomidine and ketamine, resulting in a level of sedation adequate for capture, blood sampling and minor procedures in all three animals (mean dosages: ketamine 2.1 mg/kg, medetomidine 159 µg/kg). Sedation was reversed with atipamezole (mean dosage: 1.59 mg/kg) given as a split dose intravenously and intramuscularly or intramuscularly and subcutaneously. No anesthetic compications were seen in any of the klipspringers. Serum chemistry and hematologic values are given for these klipspringers.
