Clear colorless solution odorless.
1 ml contains active substances:
Oxytocin – 10 IU. /
Excipients: ad 1ml
PHARMACOLOGICAL CHARACTERISTICS :
Oxytocin – a hormone of the hypothalamus, which consists of a pentapeptide cycle and a side chain of three amino acid residues that accumulated in the posterior pituitary.
It increases the permeability of sodium in myofibrils of the uterus, promoting its reduction. The threshold induced by oxytocin contractions of the uterus decreases during pregnancy, in case of high estrogen level or if parturition has begun.
K-Oxytocin 10 is decomposed in the gastrointestinal tract, so it should be appointed parenterally.
After intramuscular injection drug effect is observed after 3-5 minutes
The drug is used to females and domestic animals (cows, mares, sheep, goats, Sows, female dogs, cats) for stimulation or strengthening of contractions of the uterus during parturition (in case of hypotension and uterine atony) for the treatment of postpartum heam delay in the complex treatment of metritis, for an acceleration of involution of the uterus after parturition and for milk stimulation ejection in case of agalactia; in case of uterine bleeding; for exemption of lacteal glands from milk or inflammatory exudate during treatment of mastitis.
The drug is injected intramuscularly or subcutaneously once at doses :
Cows, Mares – 3-6 ml (30-60 IU) per head;
Sheep, Goats – 1-1.5 ml (10-15 IU) per head;
Sows – 2-3 ml (20-30 IU) per head;
Female dogs – 0.5-1 ml (5-10 IU) per head;
Cats – 0.2-0.3 ml (2.3 IU) per head.
If you need a fast reaction is possible intravenous injection with glucose solution. In this case dose of oxytocin reduce by 30%
Hypersensitivity to oxytocin.
Oxytocin is contraindicated to animals with incoordination of parturition activity that occurred against the background of the improper location of the fetus.
In the case of injection of oxytocin before parturition, it is necessary to wait for the relaxation of the cervix uteri in the usual way or pre-inject estrogen.
Do not use it with drugs-analogs.
Do not use in case of poorly disclosed cervix uteri or malposition.
Use the drug intravenously only in case of necessity and inject it only slowly.
Use the drug with caution(especially intravenously) to animals with disorders of the cardiovascular system because of its possible effect on it (lowering blood pressure) and to animals with kidney disease (due to the antidiuretic effect of the drug).
