Actions Ketoprofen is a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID) of the propionic acid class. The anti-inflammatory, analgesic and antipyretic effects of ketoprofen are attributable to inhibition of the cyclooxygenase (COX) enzyme, which is responsible for the conversion of arachidonic acid into pro-inflammatory mediators.Pharmacokinetics Ketoprofen is readily and rapidly absorbed following intramuscular administration. It is widely distributed in tissues and substantial concentrations may be reached in synovial fluid. Ketoprofen has a half-life of one hour in the horse, and repeated administration does not result in drug accumulation in animals with normal renal and hepatic function. The elimination profile of ketoprofen contrasts with the dose dependent kinetics of phenylbutazone and the resultant accumulation and prolonged elimination following repeated dosage of phenylbutazone. Despite the short plasma half-life of ketoprofen, clinical effects are observed for several hours after administration, possibly due to delayed clearance from inflammatory fluid or a prolonged effect on inflammatory mediators. Ketoprofen is metabolised in the liver via conjugation with glucuronic acid and the glucuronic ester is excreted in the urine. The parent compound or its metabolites are detectable by conventional analytical methods in equine urine for up to 72 hours after intravenous administration of a therapeutic dose, and may be detectable by some techniques for up to ten days after treatment.In cattle, minimal ketoprofen passes into the mammary gland.
Precautions Perivascular injection should be avoided. Safety of use in pregnant mares has not been determined.When Key Injection has been administered in the treatment of colic, continual patient reassessment by clinical examination should be maintained as drug induced analgesia may obscure the need for surgical intervention.First Aid If poisoning occurs, contact a doctor or Poisons Information Centre.
