Medetomidine and its analog detomidine were developed within the research arm of Farmos of Turku, Finland in the 1970s. Farmos was subsequently acquired by Orion of Helsinki. After commercialization in Scandinavia, medetomidine quickly found applications in non-domestic species. Dr. Harry Jalanka of the Helsinki Zoo conducted pioneering research in the use of medetomidine in zoo and free-ranging wildlife, laying the foundation for expansion into other species. Medetomidine was approved in the US in 1995 under the trade name of Domitor.
