This treatment applies to the following species:
Manufacturer: Aspen

Natural E-AD (Vitamins A, D3, and E)

INJECTABLE d-ALPHA-TOCOPHEROL with AD

Natural vitamin A (carotenes), and tocopherols can be destroyed in feedstuffs through processing, ensiling and storage. Due to these losses, reduced intakes of fat-soluble vitamins can occur in animals maintained in continual confinement compared to animals allowed to graze lush pasture. Intramuscular or subcutaneous injections offer an efficient and rapid method to increase the vitamin A, vitamin D and vitamin E status of animals.

Essential-AD Indications

Essential E-AD Injectable d-alpha-tocopherol with AD is a clear, sterile, water emulsifiable solution of vitamin A, vitamin D3, and vitamin E. This product is intended as a supplemental source of vitamins A, D, and E.

Each mL contains: 300 IU's of Vitamin E (as d-alpha-tocopherol, a natural source of Vitamin E); 100,000 IU's Vitamin A Propionate; 10,000 IU's Vitamin D3; compounded with 2% benzyl alcohol (preservative) in a water emulsifiable base.

Essential-AD Caution

Do not exceed recommended dosage. Occasionally, reactions of an anaphylactic or allergic nature may occur. Should such reactions occur, treat immediately with injection of epinephrine or antihistamines.

Warning

Do not add water to solution.

Store between 2°-30°C (36°-86°F) in a dark place.
