Quantity1L Tub
IndicationMusculoskeletal conditions and soft tissue swelling in horses requiring anti-inflammatory, antipyretic and analgesic effect, including acute joint and tendon synovitis, bursitis, acute sprains of joints and ligaments, sprains of tendons, serous arthritis, in conjunction with antibiotics in infective arthritis, soft tissue reaction following surgical procedures including castration, wound inflammation, tissue bruising and abrasions; pain associated with acute and chronic arthritic conditions, acute and chronic laminitis.

ActionsNonsteroidal anti-inflammatory, analgesic and antipyretic.Pharmacokinetics Studies on P-Butazone Paste indicate a plasma half-life of approximately 4.42 hours. Oral absorption of phenylbutazone can vary considerably between individual horses with up to tenfold differences in peak plasma concentrations. More consistent results can be obtained when the paste is administered prior to feeding. In most horses the considered minimal effective therapeutic plasma level of 7 microgram/mL should be maintained with adequate safety by administering the recommended dose rates at 12 hourly intervals during the acute stage of responsive conditions.
PrecautionsDiscontinue therapy if signs of lethargy, gastrointestinal tract irritation, inappetence, oral ulceration, or vascular disorders and hypoproteinaemia resulting in ventral abdominal oedema occur during treatment. Adhere strictly to dose rates recommended for ponies and foals, where there is a greater risk of toxicity than in the adult horse. See product literature for further details.
