This treatment applies to the following species:
Manufacturer: Aspen

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

Injectable d-alpha-tocopherol with AD

NOT FOR USE IN HUMAN

KEEP OUT OF REACH OF CHILDREN

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 vitamin A, vitamin D and vitamin E status of animals.

Vita-Jec Essential-AD Indications

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

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

Vita-Jec Essential-AD Caution

Anaphylactoid or allergic reactions, which have resulted in deaths, have been reported in individual animals as well as entire herds. Should such reactions or hypersensitivity occur, treat immediately with injection of epinephrine and/or antihistamines. Do not exceed recommended dosage. Administration of this product to well-nourished animals may cause hypervitaminosis D, which may result in hypercalcemia and hyperphosphatemia.
