FUROFIELD – Furosemide inhibits sodium reabsorption in the proximal convoluted tubules and in the ascending thick limb of Henle’s loop. The fact of blocking the crucial mechanism of sodium transport in this portion of the nephron is able to inhibit the reabsorption of approximately 25% of the sodium filtered in the glomerulus. Those segments located beyond this point of the Loop are unable to reabsorb the overload of the sodium ion caused, which is responsible for a powerful natriuresis and consequent diuresis.
It promotes chloride and potassium excretion. Its diuretic effect is regardless the patient’s acid / base balance status. Dexamethasone has antiinflammatory and antistress activity. Clinical experience shows that the edemas are markedly reduced by this drug.
The diuretic combination of furosemide with the corticoid antiinflammatory activity presents an effective activity in the reduction of labor physiological edema in the mammary gland, and the reduction of edematous conditions accompanied or not by inflammation.
FUROFIELD is a product intended to the treatment of the edema reduction in general: pulmonary congestion and edema, brain edema, renal edema, gestation edema, pericardic edema, preputial edema, anasarca, ascitis, hydrothorax, bovine pre and post partum udder edema.
Large, medium and small species.
DOSAGE AND ADMINISTRATION:
Large animals: 10 to 25 ml. Medium: sheep, goats,
Pigs: 2 to 4 ml. Small species: 0.25 a 0.5 ml according to the professional’s criteria and need.

Do not administer FUROFIELD in cases of acute systemic diseases (unless a specific antimicrobial therapy is introduced). Avoid attenuated viruses vaccines. It should not be used in patients with active or doubtedly inactive tuberculosis either, except when used together with tuberculostatic drugs. Do not overdose to prevent electrolytic imbalances produced by furosemide. Do not administer to animals with acute renal disorders.
Do not administer to females in their third gestation quarter because of the presence of dexamethasone that might cause undesired labor induction.
