Description

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.

Key Benefits

  • Recommended for infiltration, nerve block, intra-articular and epidural anesthesia for horses
  • Enables the veterinarian to proceed with intended equine health care procedures without delay and to complete work under desensitization, which is adequate even for prolonged operations
  • Includes the active ingredient mepivacaine hydrochloride, a safe and effective local anesthetic
  • For palmar digital nerve blocks, CARBOCAINE-V was shown to be fully effective between 15 minutes and one hour post injection. The analgesic effect began to subside between one to two hours, but sufficient analgesia persisted to affect gait characteristics beyond two hours.

Indications

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.

Directions

View CARBOCAINE-V Drug Facts Sheet.

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:

For Nerve Block

(diagnosis of lameness, firing, pain relief in osteoarthritis, navicular disease) 3 to 15 mL

For epidural anesthesia

(animal standing) 5 to 20 mL

For intra-articular anesthesia

(removal of fracture chips, bone and bog spavin, arthritis) 10 to 15 mL

For infiltration

(alone or in combination with nerve block or intra-articular anesthesia) as required

For anesthesia of the laryngeal mucosa prior to ventriculectomy

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.

Caution:

Federal (USA) law restricts this drug to use by or on the order of licensed veterinarian.

Warnings:

Do not use in horses intended for human consumption. Not for human use. Keep out of reach of children.

Precautions:

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.

  1. Injections should always be made aseptically and with frequent aspirations. If blood is aspirated, the needle should be relocated abd the injections continued cautiously.
  2. When used for epidural anesthesia, care should be taken to avoid injection into the subarachnoid space. The skin should be shaved and sterilized, and the needles used must be sharp and of the proper length.
  3. The depth of anesthesia should be checked by pricking the area before manipulations are begun.
