What is Banamine?

Banamine is an injectable solution for horses that is recommended for the alleviation of inflammation and pain associated with musculoskeletal disorder. It is a non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID) that is also recommended for the alleviation of visceral pain associated with colic in horses. Banamine quickly controls inflammatory responses with an onset of activity within two hours of administration. It is safe to use as it is non-narcotic, non-steroidal. Banamine can also be used in cattle for reasons not listed here. Banamine requires a prescription from your veterinarian.

For:

Horses and Cattle

Benefits:

  • Helps provide inflammation and pain relief
  • Non-narcotic
  • Non-steroidal
  • Fast-acting and long-lasting
  • Multiple-dose vial

How does Banamine work?

Banamine contains the active ingredient, flunixin meglumine, which is a potent, non-narcotic, non-steroidal, analgesic agent with anti-inflammatory and antipyretic activity. It is significantly more potent than pentazocine, meperidine, and codeine as an analgesic.

Cautions:

Horses that are dehydrated, on concomitant diuretic therapy, or have renal, cardiovascular, and/or hepatic dysfunction are at risk of renal toxicity when using Banamine. Banamine is for intravenous (IV) or intramuscular (IM) use. Avoid concomitant use of Banamine with other anti-inflammatory drugs, such as other NSAIDs and corticosteroids. The effects of Banamine haven't been evaluated in pregnant mares. Studies to determine the activity of Banamine when administered concomitantly with other drugs have not been conducted.
