A new 5ml bottle of Comfortan – Dechra Veterinary Products’ titratable analgesia for cats and dogs – is now available through veterinary wholesalers in the UK.

Designed for use with animals in, or about to experience, moderate to severe pain, Comfortan was the UK’s first veterinary licensed methadone and is also available in a 10ml size.

Dechra brand manager Craig Sankey said: “The new 5ml bottle is a great size for practices that would like to introduce Comfortan into their practice protocols, allowing them to do so in a cost-effective way.

“The availability of a smaller bottle will also be a benefit to practices, which, due to different surgical needs, use Comfortan in a small number of cases. They will then be able to simply and easily trade up to the 10ml bottle once they start to use Comfortan on more cases.”

The 5ml bottle has also been introduced in response to demand from branch practices, which had been transferring 10ml bottles between sites, and for cat-focused practices that use smaller volumes of the product.

Comfortan is one of a range of products in Dechra’s anaesthesia and analgesia portfolio, which also includes Anesketin and Buprenodale. It is licensed for intramuscular, intravenous and subcutaneous usage in dogs and intramuscular in cats.
