Animal Health

Dechra has launched Euthasol® vet, a highly concentrated euthanasia solution containing 400 mg/ml of pentobarbital sodium, which can be used to euthanise dogs, cats, rodents, rabbits, cattle, sheep, goats, horses and mink. It is licensed for intravenous, intracardial and intraperitoneal usage. Claire Morgan, Dechra Brand Manager, said: “Choosing the correct product for euthanasia is vital for veterinary professionals and Euthasol vet offers a highly effective solution. The intravenous route of administration should be the route of choice. Where intravenous administration is impossible, the product may be administered via the intracardiac route in all named species. Euthsaol’s versatility in terms of the range of species in which it is licensed for use, coupled with its 400 mg/ml concentration, is set to make it a popular choice in practice.”

Equibactin® vet, an oral antibiotic1 paste, has also been launched for the treatment of a wide range of infections in horses, in particular respiratory tract infections associated with streptococcus spp. and staphylococcus aureus; gastrointestinal infections associated with E. coli; urogenital infections associated with beta-hemolytic streptococci; and wound infections and open or drained abscesses associated with streptococcus spp. and staphylococcus aureus. Emma Jennings, Dechra Brand Manager, said: “Equibactin vet has a proven antibiotic combination with a synergistic effect making it an excellent first line broad spectrum antimicrobial treatment for most Gram positive and negative aerobes. It can be administered without food which improves the oral bioavailability, offering equine veterinary surgeons a quick and efficient treatment when it comes to targeting these infections that are often experienced in day-to-day practice. With its ease of use and three-year shelf life, we anticipate that Equibactin vet will quickly become a popular product when it comes to maintaining equine health.”
