ilium Buccalgesic OTM (Oral Trans Mucosal) 200 mL

Description

  • Contains 10 mg/mL meloxicam in a ready-to-use blue gel. The gel is dosed into the buccal pouch with the applicator, where the special formulation will absorb quickly into the blood stream.
  • To be used in calves during routine husbandry procedures such as castration, and also during disbudding (or dehorning), in conjunction with the administration of a cornual nerve block. In lambs it may be used during routine husbandry procedures of castration & tail docking (both surgical and rings) and mulesing.
  • Available in 200 mL bottle with hi-flow draw-off tube included. Dosing guns for cattle or sheep sold separately.
  • The blue colour in the gel allows easy identification of animals dosed.
  • The best results are obtained when the animals are dosed 10-15 minutes prior to the procedure, however, Buccalgesic is still effective when used at the time of procedure if pre-dosing is not possible.
  • Buccalgesic can also be used in association with local anaesthesia (such as lignocaine injection or topical anaesthetic sprays).
  • The product can be used for up to 6 months after first opening.
