Animal health company Zoetis is offering Equimidine solution in a plastic bottle, which is 50% larger.
It has sedative and analgesic properties and is indicated for use either alone or in combination with butorphanol to facilitate the handling of horses for clinical examinations, minor surgical procedures and other manipulations.
It can also be used with ketamine for short duration general anaesthesia for surgical procedures such as castration.
The new 15ml plastic bottle, as opposed to the old 10ml glass vial, is more cost-effective per dose. It is also safer to use as the bottle is less likely to break if accidentally dropped.
Zoetis’ equine product manager Penny McCann said: “The new presentation provides practical benefits for vets and the larger bottle size means the product is now even more cost-effective.”
Other products in the Zoetis portfolio licensed for use in combination with Equimidine include Torbugesic and Ketavet.
