Pharmacological particulars

Pharmacodynamic properties

Injectable iron-carbohydrate complexes are established haematinic agents in veterinary medicine. Following intramuscular injection, the complex is absorbed and metabolised to release the iron for utilisation and/or storage in accordance with the nutritional status of the animal. In iron deficient states, the iron is utilised for the synthesis of haemoglobin and other iron-containing molecules. Excess iron is stored principally in the liver.

Pharmacokinetic properties

Absorption of the product has been shown to be rapid. Over 95% of the administered iron (1mL/200 mg iron administered at three days of age) was absorbed by 24 hours after injection. Use of the product does not result in permanent staining of the injected muscle tissue.

Pharmaceutical particulars

The sachet should not be opened until the product is required for use. Avoid the introduction of contamination during use.

Excipients

Phenol, Sodium chloride, Water for injections
