Tranquigel - for horses
Tranquigel 10 ml.
Tranquigel sedates your animal.
TRANQUIGEL is a yellow-colored paste and contains active substance acepromazine maleate.
Acepromazine has a depressant effect on the central nervous system, causing sedation, muscular relaxation, and an overall reduction in activity. The rapid action exerts an almost immediate calming effect, with a low order of toxicity, making it one of the most commonly used tranquilizers.
Acepromazine is a rapid-acting tranquilizer used as an aid for controlling fractious horses during examination, treatment, trailer loading, and transportation. Acepromazine is also commonly used in conjunction with local anesthesia for various surgical procedures, including castration, removal of skin tumors, ocular surgery, and neurectomy.
Not for use in animals intended for human consumption. Treated horses may never be slaughtered for human consumption. The horse must have been declared as not intended for human consumption under national horse passport legislation.
Paralysis of the retractor penis muscle has been noted with the use of this class of tranquilizers. This risk should be considered prior to the administration of Acepromazine Maleate Injection to male horses. Dosage should be limited to the minimum amount necessary for the desired effect. Note that at the time of administration it is normal to observe the reversible protrusion of the penis. The irreversible paralysis of the retractor penis muscle may occur when a tranquilizer is used in conjunction with testosterone (or in stallions).

Moderate sedation: 0.15 mg acepromazine/kg bodyweight.
Sedation lasts for approximately six hours, although the actual time and depth of sedation are very dependent on the status of the individual animal.
Increasing the dosage results in prolonged action and side effects but no greater sedation.
Because of the difficulties in ensuring the accurate delivery of small doses, the product should only be used in horses of less than 200kg bodyweight in accordance with a benefit / risk assessment by the responsible veterinarian.
