New euthanasia product hits UK veterinary market
02 May 2019
A highly concentrated euthanasia solution that can be used to euthanise many species has been added to the UK portfolio of Dechra Veterinary Products.
Euthasol® vet, which contains 400 mg/ml of Pentobarbital sodium, can be used on dogs, cats, rodents, rabbits, cattle, sheep, goats, horses and mink.
The solution – a clear blue liquid - is licensed for intravenous, intracardial and intraperitoneal usage and a dose of 140 mg/kg (equivalent to 0.35 ml/kg) is considered sufficient for all licensed routes of administration. Euthasol vet comes in vials of 100ml and has a 28 day broached shelf life.
Dechra Brand Manager Claire Morgan said: “Choosing the correct product for euthanasia is vital for veterinary professionals and Euthasol vet offers a highly effective solution.
“The intravenous route of administration should be the route of choice. Where intravenous administration is impossible, the product may be administered via the intracardiac route in all named species.
“Euthsaol’s versatility in terms of the range of species in which it is licensed for use, coupled with its 400 mg/ml concentration, is set to make it a popular choice in practice.”
