A tiletamine/zolazepam combination was used to immobilize 24 captive giant Chacoan peccaries (Catagonus wagneri) at a mean dosage rate of 2.18 mg/kg (SD = 0.46) of body weight, given intramuscularly. The mean induction time (the time from injection until recumbency) was 7.6 min (SD = 2.1). Standing time (the time from injection until the peccary stood without stimulation or assistance) ranged from 90 to 240 min. Tiletamine/zolazepam in combination was an effective and safe immobilizing agent for giant Chacoan peccaries.
