21st June, 2010 00h00

Janssen Animal Health has launched Domosedan Gel®, an easy-to-use oromucosal gel for the reliable sedation of horses. Domosedan Gel Packshot Domesedan® injection (containing detomidine) has been used for more than 20 years worldwide, now a new formulation gel is launched. Domosedan Gel® containing 7.6 mg/ml (40mcg/kg) detomidine, induces sedation and analgesia with the efficacy and recovery comparable to the proven and trusted sedative, Domosedan injection. Domosedan Gel® is administered under the horse’s tongue, so it is rapidly absorbed. It can replace physical restraint and improve safety during treatments, diagnostics and transport and the gel is ideal for horses that are nervous or needle-shy and when owners need more control during clipping, shoeing, dental treatments and boxing. “Domosedan Gel® is proven to be both effective and easy-to-administer with 98% of horses accepting the gel and owners finding it easy and convenient to use,” comments Nicki Glen, marketing manager at Janssen Animal Health. “The gel starts to be absorbed immediately and demonstrates a reliable sedatory effect and high safety margin, making it an ideal solution for sedation and restraint when performing non invasive procedures on horses.” For further information, please contact your Janssen Animal Health territory manager.
