EQ-PAIN 50ML into infected joints. Strict asepsis is recommended at the intra-articular use for pains injection site, which is performed through healthy skin and by a veterinarian. Do not administer intramuscularly. Do not use in animals intended for human consumption. Any excess synovial fluid (intra-articular effusion) must be removed aseptically before hyaluron injection. In isolated cases, as a secondary effect, a slight inflammation may appear after the IA application of hyaluron within 24 and 48 hours after its application. It is a process resulting from the friction of the needle within the joint that is quickly reversed. If it persists, the possibility of infection and appropriate antibiotic therapy should be considered.
ADMINISTRATION AND DOSAGE of EQ-PAIN 50ML
The recommended dose of intraarticular hyaluron in horses is 2 mL (20 mg) per joint, and up to 4 mL (40 mg) can be applied in large joints. In acute cases, one treatment is generally sufficient, and the application can be repeated after 7 or 14 days. If the joint presents joint effusion, the excess synovial fluid must be removed prior to the injection of hyaluron. It is recommended to keep the horse on sports rest for 2 days after the IA injection or to work it in a very limited way. If necessary, hyaluron can be associated with corticosteroids for intra-articular use in the same injection. By IV route, the recommended dose of hyaluron is 4 mL (40 mg) in a single weekly injection. In chronic or severe cases, it is convenient to apply this dose for 4 or 5 weeks, or for as long as the veterinarian deems appropriate.
