Rocuronium bromide has recently been reported to dilate the pupil of orange-winged parrots (Amazona amazonica) (36) and several other species of birds, including Hispaniolan Amazon parrots, (37,38) tawny owls (Strix aluco), (39) common buzzards (Buteo buteo
), little owls, (40) and European kestrels (Falco tinnunculus).
Induction of mydriasis with the use of topical rocuronium bromide is reported in the common buzzard (Buteo buteo
), little owl (Athene noctua) (BARSOTTI et al., 2010a), tawny owl (Strix aluco) (BARSOTTI et al., 2010b) and European kestrel (Falco tinnunculus) (BARSOTTI et al., 2012) without adverse side effects.
