Topical Anaesthetic and Antiseptic Solution for Pain Relief in Sheep
Tri-Solfen is a local anaesthetic and antiseptic gel spray for use on lambs to provide pain relief following mulesing. It has also been developed to reduce blood loss and infection in order to improve wound healing.
The product contains two proven topical local anaesthetics; fast-acting Lignocaine for immediate pain relief and long-acting Bupivacaine for prolonged post-operative pain relief.
Adrenaline is included for its ability to reduce the shock and stress of blood loss, whilst prolonging the anaesthetic action.
Tri-Solfen also contains Cetrimide, an antiseptic widely used to cleanse skin and wounds and provides protection from bacterial contamination. The product's gel base adheres well to the wound and acts as a barrier to environmental stimuli to improve wound healing.
First product of its kind to address the legimate animal welfare concerns being expressed regarding mulesing
Provides rapid and prolonged relief of pain for at least 24 hours following mulesing
Visibly reduces pain-related behaviours
Reduces wound haemorrhage - results in less shock and stress from blood loss
Reduces risk of infection, which if untreated, can result in prolonged pain, stress and potential mortality
Gel spray seals the wound to provide a 'barrier' effect to moisterise and improve wound healing
Note: Insecticidal preparations registered to treat mulesing wounds can be applied AFTER application of Tri-Solfen. However high volume fly treatments are not suitable to be used as they are likely to wash the Tri-Solfen from the wound.
