animal pain management

This article is sponsored content brought to you by Troy Laboratories.

When providing expert advice to your clients, you need to ensure that you’re offering their animal the best treatment available for pain management. 

Treatment of pain can be challenging as signs can differ between individual animals, even animals within the same species. It’s important that the behavioural changes are monitored by your clients so that you can tailor the best possible pain-management program for their animal. 

The newest member of the ILIUM MELOXICAM family is ILIUM BUCCALGESIC OTM, for the alleviation of pain associated with routine husbandry procedures on any occasion where the animal will benefit from pain relief including mulesing, castration, tail docking, lameness, surgical procedures, and even injuries sustained during shearing. The routine husbandry procedures performed on livestock are necessary,
not just for ease of handling and the convenience of the veterinarian and farmer, but importantly for the productivity and long-term welfare of the animal. The use of BUCCALGESIC OTM has been shown to increase productivity and aids in animal recovery.

The responsibility in clinic is to ensure that the animal’s wellbeing is maintained once discharged or in recovery. Due to induced hypersensitisation and neuroplasticity, pain is more difficult to control once it occurs. 

Administration of ILIUM MELOXICAM before surgery, i.e. at the time of pre-medication, maximises and extends its efficiency, reduces the overall analgesic requirement, eases patient handling and reduces post-surgical morbidity. 

ILIUM MELOXICAM has the most approved uses across registered species
in Australia with multiple delivery methods making it a market innovator for NSAIDs in Australia. ILIUM MELOXICAM is available as an injection and oral suspension for dogs and cats, an oral suspension for horses and foals, an injection for cattle and pigs and a solution for oral trans-mucosal (OTM) absorption for sheep and cattle. ILIUM MELOXCAM is proven to alleviate both acute and chronic musculoskeletal disorders and to reduce post-operative pain and inflammation.
