Efficacy of a non-steroidal anti-inflammatory, ketogen 10% (ketoprofen) in the treatment of colic in horses






Journal of Equine Veterinary Science 12(5): 311-315

Efficacy of a non-steroidal anti-inflammatory, ketogen 10% (ketoprofen) in the treatment of colic in horses

In a multi-site clinical trial ketoprofen used i.v. at a dose-rate of 2 mg/kg of body weight showed a potent analgesic effect in the management of pain in 67 horses affected by colic. Clinical examinations were conducted for 8 h after treatment, including evaluation of attitude of the animal pain, characteristics of pulse, colour of mucosa, sweating, rectal temperature, heart and respiratory rates. One hour after initiation of therapy, there was a significant improvement of these symptoms.
