Effective Treatment for Respiratory Disorders in Animals! ๐Ÿพ




Do you have furry or feathered friends suffering from respiratory disorders? Look no further! Introducing Bolus & WSP, two powerful veterinary medications designed to alleviate respiratory issues in animals. ๐Ÿ˜ท๐Ÿพ


๐Ÿ“‹ Composition:


Let's start by understanding what these medications contain. Bolus consists of Bromhexine Hydrochloride BP, with each bolus containing 100 mg of this active ingredient. On the other hand, WSP (Water Soluble Powder) contains Bromhexine Hydrochloride BP, with each gram of powder containing 10 mg. These medications are formulated specifically for the use of animals. ๐Ÿฆฎ๐Ÿˆ๐Ÿ–


๐Ÿงช Pharmacology:


Bromhexine Hydrochloride is a mucolytic agent that works wonders on mucus. It targets the structure of mucopolysaccharide fibers, breaking them down and reducing the viscosity of phlegm. By making the phlegm thinner, it becomes easier for animals to expectorate, providing relief from respiratory congestion. Interestingly, Bromhexine Hydrochloride is also effective in treating amniotic fluid aspiration/pneumonia in newborn calves. ๐ŸŒฌ๏ธ๐Ÿ„


๐Ÿ’ก Indications:


Wondering when to use these medications? Bromhexine Hydrochloride is indicated for the treatment of various respiratory disorders associated with productive cough in livestock, dogs, cats, and pigs. The conditions it can address include Complicated Chronic Respiratory Diseases (CCRD), Chronic Respiratory Diseases (CRD), Infectious bronchitis, Laryngotracheitis, Infectious Coryza, Influenza, Pneumonia, Bronchopneumonia, Rhinitis, and Cough. ๐Ÿคง๐Ÿ–๐Ÿถ๐Ÿฑ๐Ÿ„๐Ÿ”
