Adenosine helps in the production of coronary vasodilation in anticipation of severe cardiac load in athletic animals or in treatment of myocardial oxygen deficit (as evidenced by performance linked ECG changes) muscle cramp, tying up prevention.
Many veterinarians working in the industry feel that AMP provides the effect of excitability in some horses. Horses that need a little more enthusiasm when performing, especially “out of the gate”
Adenosine-5-monophosphate 200 mg/ml
Adenosine injection is used as a potent natural vasodilator which produces a marked increase in blood circulation to both skeletal and cardiac muscles.
1. ADENOSIN INJECTION increases blood, nutrient and available energy supply to muscle tissues.
2. Vasodilation improves the removal of waste due to fatigue and cramping.
3. ADENOSIN INJECTION may help prevent heart strain during and after strenuous exercise.
By producing a marked increase in the blood supply to muscles and heart, adenosine increases the oxygen and essential nutrient supply to these areas during hard work and improves the efficiency of removal of waste products such as lactic acid to delay the onset of muscle fatigue. Adenosine is of value in the treatment and prevention of tying up for these reasons. Because of its potent vasodilation effect on cardiac muscles, adenosine is effective in the treatment and prevention of heart strain and exercise induced changes in horses.
Dosage And Administration:
Adult horses: Administer 10ml by intramuscular injection 24 hours and again 4 hours before hard work.
Adenosine injection must ONLY be administered by intramuscular injection (IM). DO NOT administer by the intravenous (IV) route under any circumstances. This may lead to a profound rapid drop in blood pressure, with collapse and even death.
50ml sterile injection use for intramuscular injection (IM) use only.
Adenosine should be store below 25C (Air Conditioning).
Export Slaughter Interval (Horses): NOT TO BE USED in horses that may be slaughtered for human consumption.
Tips for Trainers:
Use Adenosine injection in combination with Vitamin B12 with Phosphorous Injection 24 hours and again 4-6 hours pre-event, to improve blood and nutrient supply to hard working muscles.
