Zoletil is a non-narcotic, nonbarbiturate, injectable veterinary anesthetic agent, which is routinely used as a veterinary anesthetic. Zoletil is an equal weight (1:1 ratio) combination of tiletamine hydrochloride and zolazepam hydrochloride. Tiletamine is a dissociative anesthetic agent with pharmacological similarity to ketamine, and zolazepam is a nonphenothiazine, diazepinone minor tranquillizer similar to diazepam. Zoletil is the term used in Europe and Telazol is used in the USA. Adverse effects of zoletil in animals include salivation, vomiting, tachycardia, seizures, central nervous system stimulation, apnea, and prolonged recovery time. A 30-year old male who was poisoned with zoletil visited our emergency center and presented with several symptoms. We report on a case of Zoletil poisoning.
