PropoFlo Plus
PropoFlo Plus contains benzyl alcohol, an antimicrobial preservative that provides it with a shelf life of 28 days once opened. It is indicated for therapeutic use as a short-acting, intravenous general anaesthetic with a short recovery period.

PropoFlo Plus can be used for procedures of a short duration, lasting up to approximately five minutes, and for induction of general anaesthesia where maintenance is provided by inhalation anaesthetic agents. The extended shelf life provides an option for practices that may not routinely use an entire bottle of unpreserved propofol.

“Many veterinary surgeons are rightfully concerned about ways to save on costs and reduce waste in their practices, including anaesthetic waste,” said Jeff Schaffnit, Senior Director of Global Sales, Marketing and Business Development, Abbott Animal Health. “PropoFlo Plus is designed to minimise waste while providing veterinary surgeons with the confidence of using a familiar, trusted anaesthetic.”

In addition to an extended shelf life, PropoFlo Plus provides the same established performance of PropoFlo, including:

•     The smooth, rapid inductions and recoveries veterinary surgeons have come to expect from propofol.
•     Helping to reduce anaesthetic waste.
•     Inadvertent perivascular administration has rarely been shown to cause local tissue reactions.
•     Is not cumulative on repeat injections.
•     Familiar milky white appearance, allowing for easy visual identification.

Furthermore, studies show administering PropoFlo Plus results in no pain on injection.

The product is available through veterinary wholesalers. Abbott Animal Health will provide expert product support through local representatives, anaesthesia consultants and training tools for staff.
