What is Flunazine?

Flunazine 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. Flunazine is a potent medication that provides relief from pain in as little as 15 minutes after administration. It is safe to use as it is non-narcotic, non-steroidal. Flunazine can also be used in cattle for reasons not listed here. Flunazine 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
  • Single-use vial

How does Flunazine work?

Flunazine 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 Flunazine. Flunazine is for intravenous (IV) or intramuscular (IM) use. Avoid concomitant use of Flunazine with other anti-inflammatory drugs, such as other NSAIDs and corticosteroids. The effects of Flunazine haven't been evaluated in pregnant mares. Studies to determine the activity of Flunazine when administered concomitantly with other drugs have not been conducted.
