Mannitol Injection 20% Indications

Mannitol Injection 20% is indicated for use as an osmotic diuretic in canine species. Mannitol is essentially inert metabolically. When given parenterally, it is freely filtered at the glomerulus which produces osmotic diuresis as more than 90% of the mannitol injected escapes reabsorption.
