Medetomidine, also known as MPV-785, is a synthetic drug used as both a surgical anesthetic and analgesic. It is an alpha-2 adrenergic agonist that can be administered as an intravenous drug solution with sterile water. It is currently approved for dogs in the United States. Medetomidine is a racemic mixture of two stereoisomers; dexmedetomidine is the isomer with more useful effects, and is now marketed as Dexdomitor. Medetomidine can be used as an antifouling substance in marine paint. It is mainly effective against barnacles.
