Xylazine is also used as an emetic in cats. The sedative and analgesic activity of xylazine hydrochloride is due to its central nervous system depression, and its muscle relaxant effects is related to the inhibition of intraneural transmission of impulses in the central nervous system.

Xylazine is an analogue of clonidine, an antihypertensive in humans, and an agonist of the α2 class of adrenergic receptor.
