  • Vetmedin®

    Active Ingredient

    Pimobendan

    Indication

    For the treatment of congestive heart failure in dogs

    Characteristics

    As the first of a new class of heart treatments termed Inodilators, Vetmedin® has been shown to significantly improve the clinical signs and extend the life expectancy in dogs with congestive heart failure. Vetmedin® works through two complementary modes of action; it opens up the blood vessels taking blood to and away from the heart, thereby lowering the pressure on the heart and reducing the work the heart has to do to pump blood around the dog's body. At the same time, Vetmedin® has a direct effect on the heart muscle, helping it to beat stronger and pump blood more efficiently.

Pharmaceuticals

  • Buscopan® Compositum

    Active Ingredient

    Butylscopolaminiumbromide and Metamizole sodium (dipyrone).

    Indication

    For the management of abdominal pain associated with equine colic.

    Characteristics

    Buscopan® Compositum contains butylscopolaminiumbromide, an antispasmodic agent, and dipyrone, a non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID). Buscopan® Compositum does not mask the symptoms of surgical colic cases and does not produce paralysis of the gut.

    Butylscopolaminiumbromide is a quaternary ammonium derivative of scopolamine. Like other belladonna alkaloid derivatives, this compound antagonises the actions of acetylcholine at the muscarinic receptor and also possesses some activity at nicotinic receptors.

    Dipyrone shows anti-inflammatory, analgesic and antipyretic effects. Data indicate that the mechanism of action of dipyrone, like other NSAIDs, is probably associated with an inhibitory effect on prostaglandin synthesis. Furthermore, it antagonises the effects of bradykinin and histamine.

    Application

    single intravenous injection

  • Metacam®

    Active Ingredient

    Meloxicam

    Indication

    Oral suspension and solution for injection: For use in the alleviation of inflammation and relief of pain in both acute and chronic musculo-skeletal disorders.
    Solution for injection: For the relief of pain associated with equine colic.

    Characteristics

    Meloxicam is a non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID) of the oxicam class (COX-2 selective) which acts by inhibition of prostaglandin synthesis, thereby exerting anti-inflammatory, analgesic, anti-exudative and antipyretic effects. It reduces leukocyte infiltration into the inflamed tissue. To a minor extent it also inhibits collagen-induced thrombocyte aggregation.

    The honey flavoured oral suspension is highly palatable and is easy to administer over feed or directly into the mouth. The complimentary dispenser syringe allows an accurate and easy dose adjustment.

    Metacam® is also available as an aqueous solution for injection.

    The different forms of presentations allow the initiation of therapy with an injection followed by the treatment with the oral suspension which can be administered by the horse owner.

    Application

    The Metacam® oral suspension can be administered with or without food.

    The Metacam® solution for injection is administered as a single intravenous injection.

  • Sedivet®

    Active Ingredient

    Romifidine

    Indication

    Sedivet® is indicated for use as a sedative to facilitate handling, examination, treatment and as a premedication agent prior to general anaesthesia.

    Characteristics

    Sedivet® is a synthetic alpha-2 sympathomimetic agent. As with other agents in this class, there is a dose dependent sedation associated with tolerance of pain.
    The sedative effect of Sedivet® is induced by a stimulation of presynaptic alpha-2 receptors in the central nervous system. Sedivet possesses a strong affinity for those receptors. Lowering of the head is the first sign of sedation followed by lethargy, reduced sensitivity to environmental stimuli and immobility. Onset of sedation occurs in one to two minutes and lasts 40 to 80 minutes. Induction of anaesthesia may be initiated 8-10 minutes after administration of Sedivet®.

    Features:

    • Equine sedative/preanesthetic
    • Used for sedation/restraint to:
      1. Facilitate routine examinations (ocular, oral, rectal)
      2. Facilitate diagnostic procedures (ie. endoscopy, lavage, radiography,ultrasonography)
      3. Standing surgical procedures (ie. laceration repair, wound debridement,castration, joint injection, etc.)
      4. Pre-anaestheti
      5. Use with Butorphanol (Torbugesic) for added analgesia

    Application

    single intravenous injection

  • Sputolysin®/Sputolosin®

    Active Ingredient

    Dembrexine

    Indication

    Symptomatic treatment of acute, sub-acute and chronic respiratory disease of the upper and lower respiratory tract, where abnormal mucus of increased viscosity is present and where secretolysis is necessary or desirable.

    Characteristics

    • Pronounced expectorant effects
    • Secondary antitussive action
    • An increase in the anti-atelectase factor which compensates for decreases in lung surfactant (lowered surface tension in the alveolar region caused by stress and disease)
    • Increased lung compliance
    • Concentrations of antibiotics in lung secretions

    Sputolysin® alters the constituents and viscosity of abnormal respiratory mucus and improves the efficiency of the respiratory tract clearance mechanism. A secondary antitussive action has also been demonstrated. The effect on mucus can change the character and frequency of a cough and alter the consistency and quantity of nasal discharges. Therefore, in some cases, there will be an initial increase in visible nasal discharges and/or frequency of cough prior to clinical improvement.
