Colic 

Ketoprofen has an equivalent analgesic affect to flunixin in cases of visceral pain (Betley et al 1991). 

Ketoprofen should be used in colics where surgery will not be conducted for economic reasons, or where an accurate diagnosis indicates that surgery will not be required. 

Direction for Use: 

Administer by intramuscular of slow intravenous injection. Care should be taken when using the intravenous route to ensure that none of the injection escapes into the perivascular tissues as irritation and inflammatory reactions may occur.

Cattle: 3 mg/kg bodyweight, equivalent to 3mL per 100kg bodyweight, once daily for 1-3 days. IM injections should be given in the anterior half of the neck. 

If used in performance horses, regulations of relevant authorities regarding medication should be observed. 

Composition: 

100mg/mL Ketoprofen 

Contraindications:

Administer by slow intravenous injection only. 

Ketaprofen possesses a wide therapeutic index, injections of twenty five times the therapeutic dose will produce only mild toxicity (Gregoricka MJ et al 1990). However, veterinary surgeons should maintain a close clinical watch on all patients receiving NSAID therapy.
