What is compounding?
Drug compounding is often regarded as the process of combining or mixing drugs to create a medication tailored to the needs of an individual patient.
The generic form of Vetmedin is Pimobendan.
Vetmedin is in limited supply. Orders placed will be shipped as product continues to come off backorder.
Isoflurane is an inhalation anesthetic agent used for induction and maintenance of general anesthesia in horses and dogs. Benefits of Fluriso include rapid onset, ease of induction, good skeletal muscle relaxation, stable cardiovascular system and smooth, controllable recovery times.
Isoflurane (isoflurane, USP) is used for induction and maintenance of general anesthesia in horses and dogs.
A premedication regimen, which may be employed depending upon the patient status, to avert excitement during induction, might include an anticholinergic, a tranquilizer, a muscle relaxant and a short-acting barbiturate.
The delivered concentration of Isoflurane (isoflurane, USP) should be known. Isoflurane may be vaporized using a flow-through vaporizer specifically calibrated for isoflurane. Vaporizers delivering a saturated vapor which then is diluted (e.g. Verni-trol vaporizer) also may be used
Isoflurane contains no stabilizer. Nothing in the drug product alters calibration or operation of these vaporizers.
Horses: Inspired concentrations of 3.0 to 5.0% isoflurane alone with oxygen following a barb-iturate anesthetic induction are usually employed to induce surgical anesthesia in the horse.
Dogs: Inspired concentrations of 2.0 to 2.5% isoflurane alone with oxygen following a barbiturate anesthetic induction are usually employed to induce surgical anesthesia in the dog.
These concentrations can be expected to produce surgical anesthesia in 5 to 10 minutes.
The concentration of vapor necessary to maintain anesthesia is much less than that required to induce it.
Horses: Surgical levels of anesthesia in the horse may be sustained with a 1.5 to 1.8% concentration of isoflurane in oxygen.
Dogs: Surgical levels of anesthesia in the dog may be sustained with a 1.5 to 1.8% concentration of isoflurane in oxygen.
The level of blood pressure during maintenance is an inverse function of isoflurane concentration in the absence of other complicating problems. Excessive decreases, unless related to hypovolemia, may be due to depth of anesthesia and in such instances may be corrected by lightening the level of anesthesia.
Recovery from isoflurane anesthesia is typically uneventful.
