Uses
HORSE
As an analgesic
Torbugesic Injection is a centrally acting analgesic and may be used for the relief of moderate to severe pain in the horse. Clinical studies in the horse have shown that Torbugesic Injection alleviates abdominal pain associated with torsion, impaction, intussusception, parturition and spasmodic and tympanic colic.
As a sedative
When given after the administration of detomidine hydrochloride: Clinical studies have shown that this combination achieved a profound sedation in the horse. The degree of sedation achieved rendered horses unaffected by sound, tactile stimuli or any surrounding activity.
The sedative combination of Torbugesic Injection and detomidine hydrochloride has been successfully used for the following procedures: radiography, clipping, wound suturing, dentistry, standing castration, hoof care, rectal examination and passing a stomach tube.
Profound sedation is also achieved using Torbugesic after the administration of romifidine.
DOG
As an analgesic
For the relief of moderate to severe pain in dogs. Clinical studies have shown that Torbugesic Injection can provide suitable analgesia after a variety of surgical procedures such as orthopaedic and soft tissue surgery.
As a sedative
For sedation in conjunction with medetomidine hydrochloride. Although sedation can occur with Torbugesic Injection alone, clinical studies have verified that deep to profound sedation is achieved by Torbugesic Injection in conjunction with a dose range of medetomidine making it suitable for a range of procedures including ear cleaning, wound management, anal gland flush, cast application, radiography and (at the higher dose rate) as a premedicant to ketamine anaesthesia (see below).
As a pre-anaesthetic
It has also been shown that pre-anaesthetic use of Torbugesic Injection has resulted in a dose-related reduction in the dose of thiopental sodium needed to induce anaesthesia, which will also reduce the risk of anaesthetic respiratory depression.
Clinical studies have verified that the use of Torbugesic Injection in conjunction with acepromazine provides a suitable analgesic and sedative premedicant to general anaesthesia. The dose of the Torbugesic can be adjusted according to the level of analgesia required. The use of the combination has resulted in a dose related reduction in the dose of either thiopental sodium or propofol needed to induce anaesthesia.
As an anaesthetic in combination with medetomidine and ketamine
Torbugesic Injection may be used as a triple anaesthetic combination with medetomidine and Ketaset™. This provides surgical anaesthesia suitable for a range of procedures including castrations and spays.
CAT
As an analgesic
Torbugesic Injection may be used for the relief of pain in the cat. Pre-operative use of Torbugesic Injection can provide analgesia during surgery. Clinical studies have demonstrated that Torbugesic Injection can provide analgesia after a variety of surgical procedures such as spays, orthopaedic and soft tissue surgery.
As a sedative in combination with medetomidine hydrochloride
Although no sedation occurs when using Torbugesic Injection alone in the cat, clinical studies have verified that profound sedation is achieved by using Torbugesic Injection in conjunction with medetomidine, making it suitable for radiography, fracture examination/casting, dematting, ear cleaning, wound management and other minor procedures.
As an anaesthetic in combination with medetomidine and ketamine
Torbugesic Injection may be used as a triple anaesthetic combination with medetomidine and Ketaset. This provides surgical anaesthesia suitable for a range of procedures including castrations and spays.
