Detomidine hydrochloride was administered intravenously to three groups of camels, using three different doses (25, 50 or 75 μg/kg). The levels of sedation and analgesia were graded and recorded. Sedation and analgesia were dose dependent. Detomidine at a dose rate of 75 μg/kg produced profound sedation and analgesia. Significant hyperglycemia and bradycardia were recorded after administration of detomidine and till recovery. No significant changes in hemoglobin concentration (Hb%), PCV, WBCs and RBCs counts and serum concentration of creatinine and blood urea nitrogen levels were recorded at any dose level
