Carbocaine-V sterile aqueous solution (2% mepivacaine hydrochloride, USP) is a local anesthetic for use in horses that has a rapid and prolonged effect. It is recommended for infiltration, nerve block, intra-articular and epidural anesthesia. It has also been found useful for topical anesthesia of the laryngeal mucosa prior to ventriculectomy. Do not use in horses intended for human consumption.
CARBOCAINE-V Sterile Aqueous Solution is recommended for infiltration, nerve block, intra-articular and epidural anesthesia for horses. It has also been found useful for topical anesthesia of the laryngeal mucosa prior to ventriculectomy. As with other anesthetics, the dosage varies considerably depending on the anesthetic technique, body area to be desensitized and the surgical procedure.
Pharmacological studies in various species of animals, icluding horses, have shown that the drug produces complete and effective anesthesia at dosages that are no more than half those needed when procaine is used.
The following dosages have generally proved satisfactory in the horse and are therefore suggested as a guide:
(diagnosis of lameness, firing, pain relief in osteoarthritis, navicular disease) 3 to 15 mL
(animal standing) 5 to 20 mL
(removal of fracture chips, bone and bog spavin, arthritis) 10 to 15 mL
(alone or in combination with nerve block or intra-articular anesthesia) as required
Carbocaine-V Sterile Aqueous Solution may be administered topically or by infiltration or by a combination of the two. For topical application, a total of 25 to 40 mL applied by spray (3 mL/application) is usually adequate. For infiltration, 20 to 50 mL will suffice.
Federal (USA) law restricts this drug to use by or on the order of licensed veterinarian.
Do not use in horses intended for human consumption. Not for human use. Keep out of reach of children.
When administered by a skilled person, Carbocaine-V Sterile Aqueous Solution may be employed safely for local infiltration, for common nerve blocking procedures, and for intra-articular and epidural anesthesia.
The following precautions, which are observed with respect to all local anesthetics, also apply to this anesthetic.
