For Veterinary Use, Not Intended for Humans

500 ml, 1000 ml

For intravenous use in the treatment of failure of passive transfer in the equine neonate at a dose of 20ml/kg of body weight. The diagnosis of failure of passive transfer should be established from a blood sample taken 18 hours after birth.

KEEP FROZEN AT ≤-15C UNTIL USE. Thaw quickly in warm water not exceeding 110F. DO NOT MICROWAVE. Administer as soon as possible after thawing to body temperature by filtered intravenous infusion at a rate of 20ml/kg (shock bolus) over a period of 15-20 minutes. Do not mix with other products, except as specified on the label.

In case of a reaction, marked most often by tenesmus and hyperventilation, slow the speed of administration. If this does not abate the signs, stop administration until signs abate and continue at a slower rate. If signs persist, suspend administration and treat with histamine blockers and anti-inflammatory agents. Discard any unused portion.

Each single dose bag contains plasma as a source of equine IgG with sodium citrate as an anticoagulant derived from healthy horses with Aa and Ca r.b.c. antigens and no r.b.c antibodies.
