For use in horses to encourage wound healing and for the prevention of the formation of hypergranulation tissue.
For cutaneous use only.
Remove any foreign bodies, necrotic tissue or pre-existing hypergranulation tissue before treatment is started.

Vulketan is sterile until first opened. It is important to keep the tube as clean as possible during use. Vulketan should be applied to the wound using sterile disposable gloves, and neither the tube nor remaining product within it should be allowed to touch the wound area.
Do not use for deep (eg penetrating or puncture wounds) or infected wounds, or immediately following surgery.

In view of its stimulating effect on the microcirculation, Vulketan should not be applied on fresh wounds until bleeding has stopped.
If exuberant granulation tissue has already developed in older wounds, it should be surgically removed before treatment is started.
Stabled horses with leg wounds may develop oedema, so they should be allowed some outside exercise during treatment.
In order to facilitate twice daily treatment, it is not recommended to bandage the wounds when being treated Vulketan.
Wash the wound with clear warm water prior to each treatment to remove the film of gel which forms over the wound.
Remove any foreign bodies or necrotic tissue from the wound prior to treating with Vulketan.

Ketanserin is a potent and selective serotonin S2-receptor antagonist. Antagonism of serotonin-induced vasoconstriction, platelet aggregation and the subsequent release of mediators, and the serotonin-induced increase in vascular permeability results in a better microcirculation and oxygen supply in the lesion. In addition ketanserin inhibits the formation of hypergranulation tissue.
