An aid in the treatment and prevention of iron deficiency anaemia in horses and greyhounds.
Anaemia due to iron deficiency may be caused by worm infestations, excessive blood loss, and inadequate dietary intake such as grazing depleted pastures. Often forms of iron in the diet are poorly absorbed.
In the working horse anaemia may stem from iron loss in sweat and from increased breakdown of red blood cells associated with greater metabolic and physiologic demands.
IRONCYL is a palatable, non-irritant haematinic syrup containing iron (soluble iron salts), copper, cobalt and manganese required for haemoglobin synthesis.
DIRECTIONS FOR USE
Horses: 40mL/450kg bodyweight daily in the feed, or as directed by a veterinary surgeon.
Greyhounds: 1mL/10kg bodyweight daily in the feed, or as directed by a veterinary surgeon.
Treatment should continue until anaemia is corrected, usually
14 - 25 days. Further blood analysis may be required to monitor the resolution of anaemia.
Routine supplementation may be required in horses and greyhounds that sweat heavily, or those undergoing hard training in a warm climate, to prevent development of iron deficiency anaemia.
