Peptosyl Suspension

Notify Me When Available
Indications:
Gastroenteritis and diarrhoea in dogs and horses.

Composition:
Bismuth salicylate 17.5 mg/mL; Bentonite

Actions
Antidiarrhoeal : The insoluble salt is converted to bismuth carbonate and sodium salicylate after oral administration. It lines the mucosal surface, absorbs toxic compounds, is mildly astringent and has protective, antacid and antiseptic properties.

Peptosyl is non-antibiotic - It will not cause bacterial resistance to develop. It is non-toxic in animals and humans, displays antibacterial activity, decreases water loss, and may also help reduce the pain of inflammatory bowel diseases.

Bismuth salicylate and other bismuth salts have been shown to inhibit plaque formation of enteric rotavirus in vitro.

The salicylate component has an antiprostaglandin synthetase effect which may enhance its action in controlling acute secretory diarrhoea.

Bentonite is a natural clay earth with properties similar to activated charcoal, and the ability to bind bacterial endotoxin.

Dosage and Administration:
Horses : 0.5 to 1 mL/kg bodyweight orally.
Dogs : 0.25 to 0.5 mL/kg bodyweight orally.

Repeat dose every 6 hours for 36 hours, and then at 12 hour intervals for a further 2 to 3 days.

Shake container thoroughly before extracting dose.

Warnings:
Precautions : If the condition does not resolve with appropriate symptomatic therapy, further diagnostic evaluation should be considered.
Warnings : Safety in pregnant animals has not been established. Faecal colour may appear darker and be misinterpreted as melaena.
Meat Withholding Period : Horses - 28 days.

Pack sizes: 200ml, 1L, 5L

Highly recommend product for horses

I had a 6 month old foal that got the runs from the green grass and it worked really well. I followed the directions and didn't have any issues with the product. The foal took it easily and due the liquid being a bit thick it was easy to administer and keep it in her mouth. Would have been nice if the product came with a applicator of some type to administer the dosage. Unfortunately Australia Post isn't reliable and the parcel was delivered later than expected and was also damaged and was just usable.
