Abstract

Fentanyl is an extremely potent pain relieving drug that has multiple applications in research and veterinary medicine. Available in a patch, for some species this presents a convenient way to provide long-term pain relief from a surgical or research procedure. This report describes the adverse reactions, clinical outcomes, and treatment for fentanyl patches when applied to healthy and hospitalized calves. Researchers and practitioners should be cautions when utilizing these patches on calves, and utilize doses below 1 ug/kg/kr.
