Vomend is a new veterinary licensed metoclopramide from Eurovet that can be used to treat vomiting and reduced gastro-intestinal motility in both dogs and cats.
Over the years, vets have often had little choice but to use metoclopramide preparations designed for human use – therefore effectively off-licence.
According to the manufacturer, this new preparation allows vets to use a medication they know is of great benefit in treating dogs and cats, without taking all the additional precautions required for off-licence use, such as having clients sign consent forms.
The product can be used in puppies and kittens. Severe vomiting in young puppies particularly, can quickly lead to dehydration and depression, so it is vital to control the clinical signs and prevent fluid loss. Eurovet claim Vomend will be particularly useful in this regard.
As well as being an anti-emetic it is also a pro-kinetic upper GI tract stimulant, so it is indicated for use in chronic nephritis, pyloric spasm and drug induced digestive intolerance.
Vomend will be available in 10ml and 20ml vials, providing greater flexibility over usage and stock control. For further information contact Eurovet on 01223 257933 or order direct from your wholesaler from early February.
