Pulmo-Clear Indications And Information
Proper diagnosis, selection of treatment modalities, and follow-up examinations for Lower Respiratory Disease in equines require veterinary expertise. Therefore, it is recommended that Pulmo-Clear be used by or under the supervision of a veterinarian.
Pulmo-Clear is recommended for use as an aid in combination with adjunctive therapy in treatment of horses with lower respiratory disease. This problem often occurs in athletic horses involved in racing, rodeo, jumping, endurance and other stressful exercise. When horses become ill, performance is reduced and they are usually removed from competition, often for an extended time period.
Efficacy testing included evaluation of recovery as measured by improvement in clinical signs and reduction and/or elimination of exudate of the trachea and lower respiratory tract by bronchoscope exam. These tests demonstrated a significant reduction in recovery time for horses receiving Pulmo-Clear and adjunctive therapy when compared with horses receiving only adjunctive therapy.
Field safety testing included groups of horses from 6 months to 15 years of age.
Pulmo-Clear Dosage And Administration
Inject one 2 ml dose deep intramuscularly in the neck. Repeat this dose in 7-10 days in the opposite side of the neck.
Corticosteroids and other drugs which may cause immunosuppression are not recommended for use with this product.
1. Store at 2° to 7° C.
2. Contains phenol and thimerosal as preservatives.
3. Protein-containing serum origin products may cause local reactions. These can include local swelling with increased heat at the injection site. Studies have demonstrated that these reactions are transient and usually recede within 48-72 hours. Rarely they may last longer. Moderate exercise aids in preventing or reducing local reaction. Discontinue use if a severe local reaction occurs.
4. A systemic anaphylactic reaction is always possible after administration of a product of this nature. Discontinue use of this product and administer adrenalin or equivalent if such occurs.
5. Packaged only in 10 x 1 dose containers.
