Presentation A clear colourless syrup. Each ml contains 25 micrograms clenbuterol hydrochloride as active ingredient plus 1.8 mg methyl parahydroxybenzoate and 0.2 mg propyl parahydroxybenzoate as preservatives. Uses Treatment of respiratory disease in horses where airway obstruction due to bronchospasm and/or accumulation of mucus is a contributing factor and improved mucociliary clearance is desirable.

To be used alone or as adjuvant therapy. In particular: 1.Acute, sub-acute and chronic infections where the presence of mucus and/or micro-organisms may stimulate bronchospasm or cause airway obstruction and thus increase airway resistance. For example, bronchitis, bronchiolitis and bronchopneumonia alone, or associated with equine influenza and other viral respiratory diseases. 2.Acute, sub-acute and chronic respiratory allergies. 3.Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD). In cases accompanied by bacterial infection the concurrent administration of antimicrobial agents is recommended.

Dosage and administration Twice daily administration of 4 ml Ventipulmin Syrup per 125 kg bodyweight. This is equivalent to twice daily administration of 0.8 micrograms clenbuterol hydrochloride/kg bodyweight. The syrup should be added to the feed (one depression of the pump delivers 4 ml syrup). Treatment should continue for as long as necessary. Contra-indications, warnings, etc Known hypersensitivity to the active ingredient. Clenbuterol may cause side effects such as sweating (mainly neck region), muscle tremor, tachycardia, slight hypotension or restlessness. These are typical for ß-agonists and occur rarely. Do not use in horses with known cardiac disease. Ventipulmin antagonises the effects of prostaglandin F2a and oxytocin. Ventipulmin is antagonised by ß-adrenergic blocking agents.

If used during pregnancy, treatment must be discontinued at the expected time of delivery since uterine contractions may be abolished under its influence. Doses up to 8 times the therapeutic dose of clenbuterol hydrochloride for a period of 90 days caused only transient side effects typical of ß-agonists, which required no treatment. In cases of accidental overdose, a ß-blocker (such as propranolol) may be used as antidote.
