For Veterinary Use, Not Intended for Humans

300 ml, 500 ml, 1000 ml

For intravenous use in the prevention or reduction in severity of Rhodococcus equi pneumonia in the equine neonate by prophylactic treatment. The average 100lb. foal should receive 1 liter within the first 24 hours of life. A second 1 liter dose should be administered approximately three weeks later. In endemic areas an additional dose may be necessary for foals up to 16 weeks of age.

KEEP FROZEN AT ≤-15°C UNTIL USE. Thaw quickly in warm water not exceeding 110°F. DO NOT MICROWAVE. Administer as soon as possible after thawing to body temperature by filtered intravenous infusion at a maximum 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 Rhodococcus equi antibodies 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 EVA, Dourine, Brucellosis, Piroplasmosis and Glanders. This product has tested free of Equine Parvovirus-Hepatitis and Equine Infectious Anemia. There is no preservative added.
