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.
Pulmotil AC is an aqueous concentrate formulation for the control of swine respiratory disease associated with Pasteurella multocida and Haemophilus parasuis in groups of swine in buildings where a respiratory disease outbreak is diagnosed.
Pulmotil® AC: Go with the flow New Pulmotil AC makes it easy to go with the flow. With a targeted respiratory disease spectrum and a unique mode of action, Pulmotil AC rapidly delivers the active ingredient to the site of infection. And Pulmotil AC works with the pig's immune system, rapidly accumulating in swine phagocytes. The acqueous concentration makes respiratory disease control:
DOSAGE & Administration: Must be diluted before administration to animals. Include in the drinking water to provide a concentration of 200mg tilmicosin per liter (200 ppm). One 960 ml bottle is sufficient to medicate 1200 liters (320 gallons) of drinking water for pigs. The medicated water should be administered for (5) five consecutive days.
Use within 24 hours of mixing with water. Do not use rusty containers for medicated water as they may affect product integrity.
When using a water medicating pump with a 1:128 inclusion rate, add 1 bottle (960 ml) of Pulmotil AC per 2.5 gallons of stock solution.
USER SAFETY WARNINGS: For use in animals only. Not for human use. Keep out of reach of children. See boxed warning and note to the physician for additional information. Wear overalls, impervious gloves and eye protection when mixing and handling the product. Wash hands after handling the product. Wash affected parts if skin contact occurs. If accidental eye contact occurs, immediately rinse thoroughly with water. To report suspected adverse events, for technical assistance, or to obtain a Material Safety Data Sheet (MSDS), call 1-800-428-4441.
RESIDUE WARNING: Swine intended fo rhuman consumption must not be slaughtered within 7 days of the last treatment with this product.
Note to the Physician: The cardiovascular system is the target of toxicity and should be monitored closely. Cardiovascular toxicity may be due to calcium channel blockade. In dogs, administration of intravenous calcium offset tilmicosin-induced tachycardia and negative inotropy (decreased contractility). Dobutamine partially offset the negative inotripic effects induced by tilmicosin injection in dogs. ß-adrenergic antagonists, such as propranolol, exacerbated the negative inotropy of tilmicosin injection in dogs. Epinephrine potentiated lethality of tilmicosin injection in pigs. This antibiotic persists in tissues for several days.
Precautions: Do not allow horses or other equines access to water containing tilmicosin. The safety of tilmicosin has not been established in male swine intended for breeding purposes.
Always treat the fewest number of animals necessary to control a respiratory disease outbreak. Prescriptions shall not be refilled. Concurrent use of Pulmotil AC and another macrolide by any route is not advised. Use of another macrolide immediately following this use of Pulmotil AC is not advised.
Adverse Reactions in Animals: Decreased water consumption was observed in healthy pigs administered tilmicosin in target animal safety studies. Ensure that pigs have continuous access to medicated water during the treatment period. Monitor pigs for signs of water refusal and dehydration while being treated. If decreased water consumption occurs, replace the medicated drinking water with fresh non-medicated water and contact your veterinarian.
