Product Details

This is a prescription item and will be sent once a valid prescription has been received and approved by our vet.

Sputolosin Powder Sputolosin Powder is for the treatment of acute, sub-acute and chronic respiratory diseases of the upper and lower respiratory tract in horses. It is available in 420g of oral powder. 

The primary active ingredient in Sputolosin is dembrexine hydrochloride, which breaks down and reduces the viscosity of mucus in the airways, thereby assisting in its removal and reducing the irritation that causes coughing.

Sputolosin Power for Horses is particularly useful in treating conditions such as chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (also known as 'heaves') and other respiratory ailments involving excessive or abnormal mucus production.

It's also beneficial for horses that have been exposed to dusty or mouldy environments, which can cause irritation and inflammation in the airways, leading to coughing and difficulty breathing.

The use of Sputolosin can greatly improve the comfort and performance of horses affected by such conditions, making it easier for them to breathe and reducing the frequency and severity of coughing episodes.

As with all veterinary prescription medications, it's important to use Sputolosin under a licensed veterinarian's guidance and follow their instructions for dosage and administration carefully. The specific dosage will vary depending on the severity of the condition, the weight of the horse, and other factors. Regular follow-ups with the veterinarian will help monitor the horse. 

Instructions

For oral administration in the food at a dose rate of 0.3 mg dembrexine per kg bodyweight twice daily: for example, for a 500kg horse, 30 g (6 level measures) of powder twice daily.

For small horses, ponies and foals the dose is administered pro rata according to the bodyweight, i.e. at a rate of 2 level measures per 170 kg bodyweight.

Add to the feed immediately prior to administration. Discard any remaining medicated feed.

An improvement in clinical signs is usually seen within five days. Treatment should be continued until complete remission occurs (usually a total period of 12 to 14 days) but should not exceed 28 days. The horse's condition should be reassessed after this period before any further treatment is proposed.

In cases complicated by the presence of micro-organisms or where pyrexia is present, the simultaneous use of suitable chemotherapeutic agent is recommended.
