Description

Bisolvon powder is added to food once or twice daily. It is used in dogs, cats, pigs and cattle. Bisolvon acts to help clear mucus from the respiratory tract and is useful where the accumulation of mucus might be detrimental. This occurs in respiratory infections and some other respiratory diseases. It is possible that Bisolvon increases the concentration of some antibiotics within the mucus when given concurrently, though this has not been proven to be of benefit.

Presentation

Powder for oral solution or in-feed use. Each gram contains 10 mg bromhexine hydrochloride per gram.

Uses

Bisolvon is a mucolytic for use as an aid to the treatment of respiratory disease in cattle, pigs, dogs and cats where mucus is a complicating factor.

Cattle, calves, pigs, piglets, dogs and cats

- all respiratory infections.

Dosage and administration

For oral administration in the feed or drinking water. Add to feed or drinking water immediately before administration.

Further information

May be used in conjunction with antibiotics and/or sulphonamides, bronchodilators etc. Bisolvon has been shown to increase mucocillary clearance in calves suffering from respiratory disease.

When Bisolvon is administered simultaneously with oxytetracycline in cattle and pigs, the levels of the antibiotic in the bronchial mucus are considerably increased (by more than 40%). The clinical significance of this action is uncertain.

My cat has been put on bisolvon by the vet for cat flu.he has been on it for 24hrs when will I notice it is working

John Cousins

Nothing will suddenly make your cat completely better. Bisolvon often helps to clear the airways a little, but it is not very powerful and cat flu is not easy to treat. You have to give the treatment a bit more time perhaps. Otherwise, see your vet again.

Hi
I would like to know if bisolvon can be used in poultry too?

John Cousins
  • Veterinary Surgeon

Bisolvon can be used in poultry and is effective. 1 sachet per 10kg bodyweight has been used as a dose, once or twice daily. Always talk to your own vet about this first. Standard withdrawal periods should be followed where applicable.
