Peptizole Syringe for Horses

Containing omeprazole, Peptizole is indicated for the treatment of gastric ulcers and the prevention of recurrence of gastric ulcers.

Available in packs of 7 syringes.

Each 7 ml syringe of Peptizole contains 7.57 g of oral paste.
Each gram of oral paste contains 370 mg of Omeprazole.

Dosage:
Omeprazole is effective in horses of various breeds and under different management conditions- foals as young as four weeks of age and weighing over 70 kg- and breeding stallions. For oral administration. Treatment of gastric ulcers: one administration per day during 28 consecutive days at the dose rate of 4 mg Omeprazole per kg body weight (1 division of the syringe/50 kg BW) followed immediately by a dosage regimen of one administration per day during 28 consecutive days at the dose rate of 1 mg Omeprazole per kg body weight, to reduce the recurrence of gastric ulcers during treatment.

Should recurrence occur, re-treatment at a dose rate of 4 mg Omeprazole per kg body weight (1 division of the syringe/50 kg BW) is recommended. It is recommended to associate the treatment with changes of husbandry and training practices. Prevention of recurrence of gastric ulcers: one administration per day at the dose rate of 1 mg Omeprazole per kg body weight. To deliver Omeprazole at the dose of 4 mg Omeprazole /kg, set the syringe plunger to the appropriate dose division for the horse's weight. Each division on the syringe plunger delivers sufficient Omeprazole to treat 50 kg body weight. The contents of one syringe will treat a 700 kg horse at the rate of 4 mg Omeprazole per kg body weight.

To deliver Omeprazole at the dose of 1 mg Omeprazole /kg, set the syringe plunger to the dose division equivalent to one-quarter of the horse's body weight. For example, to treat a horse weighing 400 kg, set the plunger to 100 kg. At this dose, each division on the syringe plunger will deliver sufficient Omeprazole to treat 200 kg body weight. Replace cap after use.
