Related to drugs that affect the digestive system and metabolism of Espumisan for cats, it is used in case of functional bowel disorders. Its effect on the body of domestic animals is similar to that on the human body.
The dosage of Eespumisan cat is calculated in the same way as a newborn baby. It is also very important that the suspension is completely harmless for pregnant animals and for cats that feed kittens milk.
Indications for use
Espumisan is prescribed by veterinarians with increased flatulence and constipation. When gases accumulate in the gastrointestinal tract, the drug has a very good effect. He helps with:
- Remgeld's Syndrome
- Post-operative gas formation in animals
Drops of the drug are also used in order to prepare the animal for diagnostic measures. This is about:
- Prevention of foaming during gastroscopy
- As a defoamer for poisoning with detergents
Dosage and contraindications
A single dose of Espumisan for a cat is 10 to 15 drops. The dosage in ml is made depending on the weight of the animal, whether it is a cat or a dog, and its age.
The drug should be given to the animal after it has been fed. It should be noted that a number of contraindications are inherent in the tool:
- Intestinal obstruction
- Obstructive diseases of the stomach or intestines
Espumisan for ultrasound diagnosis
Veterinarians recommend giving the cat Espumisan before an ultrasound examination. It is prescribed for animals to accurately diagnose and prescribe the optimal treatment course for a cat. This procedure is assigned to:
- Diagnosis of the appearance of metastases
- For the diagnosis of neoplasms
- Diagnosis of the size of the lymph nodes
- After surgery
- Chemotherapy course monitoring
- Control animals with viral leukemia (risk of lymphoma)
- Elderly animals at risk for cancer
Scheme for issuing Espumisan in preparation for an ultrasound examination.
For two days before the ultrasound examination 2-3 times a day, the cat is given the drug. A single dose is 0.5 ml.
If the animal has concomitant stool disorders and pronounced flatulence, the use of sorbents is additionally possible. We are talking about activated carbon, preparations based on white clay.
Before conducting an ultrasound examination, make sure that the animal is not emptied.. For this, it is desirable for cats to restrict access to the tray two hours before the ultrasound examination.
The dosage of Espumisan cat should be carefully calculated. This is necessary to prevent overdose of the drug.
In order to visualize such hard-to-reach organs as the adrenal glands, pancreas and ovaries, the animal that has taken Espumisan needs to be fixed and examined in various poses. In order for the animal to feel comfortable lying on its back, it is recommended to use frames or special pillows. Their purpose is to prevent the animal from falling sideways. If the owner is not able to independently cope with the animal, you can take the help of third parties.
In some cases, especially if the animal is overly aggressive, anesthesia is possible. Also, using artificial sleep in an animal, shortness of breath and the presence of gases in the stomach are removed, which, accordingly, increases the likelihood of making a correct diagnosis.
