Product description

Carbocaine-V is a sterile aqueous solution for use in horses.

Active ingredients

Each mL of Carbocaine-V contains:

  • Mepivacaine hydrochloride 20 mg

  • Methylparaben as preservative 1 mg

  • Chloride sodium for sotonicity

Indications for use

  • Carbocaine-V is recommended for infiltration, nerve block, intra-articular and epidural anesthesia for horses. It has also been found useful for topical anesthesia of the laryngeal mucosa prior to ventriculectomy.

  • As part of the trusted equine pain and sedation portfolio from Zoetis, Carbocaine-V provides rapid and marked local anesthesia lasting for several hours.

Administration and dosage

  • Dosage varies depending on anesthetic technique, body area to be desensitized and the surgical procedure.

  • For nerve block (diagnosis of lameness, pain relief in osteoarthritis, navicular disease) — 3 to 15 mL

  • For epidural anesthesia (animal standing) ― 5 to 20 mL

  • For intra-articular anesthesia (removal of fracture chips, bone and bog spavin, arthritis) — 10 to 15 mL

  • For infiltration (alone or in combination with nerve block or intra-articular anesthesia) — as required

  • For anesthesia of the laryngeal mucosa prior to ventriculectomy, Carbocaine-V may be administered topically, by infiltration or by a combination of the two:

    • For topical application — a total of 25 to 40 mL applied by spray

    • For infiltration — 20 to 50 mL will suffice
