BENEFITS;

  • Aids in the relief of pain associated with equine colic.
  • Preclinical model studies and clinical field trials in horses demonstrate that analgesic effects are seen within 15 minutes following injection and persist for approximately four hours.
  • Original synthetic, centrally acting, narcotic agonist-antagonist analgesic with potent antitussive activity.
  • Butorphanol has been demonstrated to be four times more potent than morphine.
  • Unlike classic narcotic agonist analgesics – which are associated with decreases in blood pressure, reduction in heart rate and concomitant release of histamine – butorphanol does not cause histamine release.
  • The cardiopulmonary effects of butorphanol are not distinctly dosage-related but reach a ceiling effect beyond which further dosage increases resulting in relatively lesser side effects.

DOSING;

  • Administer 5 mL of TORBUGESIC for each 1,000 pounds of body weight by intravenous injection.
    • This is equivalent to 0.1 mg of butorphanol per kilogram of body weight (0.05 mg/lb.).
  • The dose may be repeated within three to four hours but treatment should not exceed 48 hours.

Packaging
