In an earlier work, Suzuki (2004 J. Phys. A: Math. Gen. 37 11957) proposed a set of nonlinear integral equations (NLIE) to describe the excited state spectrum of the integrable spin-1 XXZ chain in its repulsive regime. In this paper, we extend his equations for the attractive regime of the model, and calculate analytically the conformal spectrum of the spin chain. We also discuss the typical root configurations of the thermodynamic limit as well as the 2-string deviations of certain excited states of the model. Special objects appearing in the NLIE are also treated with special care.
