Hippiron

$39.95

Hippiron is for the treatment of iron deficiency in horses (equine anaemia).

Iron deficiency results in poor performance in horses. It also compromises immunity and health, and increases susceptibility to disease and infection. Anaemia also reduces blood enzymes which are important for the elimination of harmful metabolites produced by the muscle during racing.

Trials with Hippiron in racing horses showed that Hippiron treatment consistently increased haemoglobin & other blood values under different treatment frequencies and dose schedules. The effects of the Hippiron treatment as measured by improvement in haemoglobin was evident for up to 3 months.

Composition:

Each 20mL contains Iron (Fe) 400mg as iron III hydroxide sucrose complex in an aqueous solution.

Mode of Action:

The injected complex breaks down into carbohydrate and trivalent iron hydroxide which is stored in the liver as Ferratin (depot iron) from where it is transported in the form of transferrin to the site of erythropoiesis.

Indications:

For prevention and treatment of iron deficiency anaemia in horses.

Administration and Dosage:

For intravenous injection only. Intravenous injections should only be carried out by, or under the supervision of, a registered veterinarian.

Foals: 10ml

Yearlings & Adults: 20mL

Use weekly or as required. The frequency & length of treatment will depend upon the severity of the iron deficiency.

To be used by, or under the supervision of a registered veterinary surgeon.

Warning: In extremely rare circumstances an anaphylactic reaction can occur. Appropriate treatment for anaphylactic shock should be instituted. The safety of Hippiron has been reported in a number of studies.

Storage:

Store below 25 degrees C. Protect from light. Do not refrigerate.
