Manufacturer: Lake Immunogenics

For Veterinary Use Only

1000 ml

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

Each single 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. All donor horses are negative for EIA, EVA, Dourine, Brucellosis, Piroplasmosis and Glanders. There is no preservative added. KEEP FROZEN UNTIL USED. 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 over a period of 15-20 minutes until volume loss or plasma component loss has been corrected. In cases 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. Administration may be attempted again if treatment is successful. Discard any unused portion.
