Product description

Doxirobe Gel is a syringe for periodontal use in dogs only.

Active ingredients

Each unit of Doxirobe Gel contains:

  • Syringe A (polymer delivery system) and Syringe B (doxycycline)
  • Which when mixed result in approximately 0.5 ml of doxycycline solution

Indications for use

  • Doxirobe Gel is indicated for the treatment and control of periodontal disease in dogs.

  • A single treatment of Doxirobe Gel can reduce periodontal pocket depth, increase reattachment and reduce gingival inflammation.

  • The special syringe with cannula permits injection of doxycycline directly into infected periodontal pockets, providing local antimicrobial action at the infection site for several weeks.

  • Doxirobe Gel:

    • Provides better results than antibiotics and scaling alone.

    • Biodegrades over time, eliminating the need to physically remove it.

    • Improves gingival health in 2 to 4 weeks.

Administration and dosage

  • Teeth should be cleaned and scaled prior to application of the product.

  • If required, root planing and debridement of affected sites should be performed. The product is applied with the animal under sedation or anesthesia. Use as many units as required to fill the periodontal pockets of affected teeth.

  • Each pouch contains 2 syringes and a blunt cannula. Syringe A contains the polymer delivery system and Syringe B contains doxycycline. Lock the syringes together.

  • Beginning with Syringe A, use the plungers of Syringes A and B to exchange the material between the syringes approximately 100 times to achieve a consistent mixture.

  • Fully deliver the mixture into Syringe A, separate the syringes, and lock the supplied blunt cannula onto Syringe A. The cannula may be bent to the desired angle.

  • Gently place the cannula 1-2 mm below the gingival margin of an affected tooth. Express a small amount of the mixture into each periodontal pocket 4 mm or deeper. Ensure that the pockets are filled approximately to the gingival margin.

  • The formulation will begin to solidify immediately upon application; however, lavage with a few drops of water or saline will facilitate the process. Allow approximately 30-60 seconds for the polymer to harden before beginning to press it into the pocket.

  • The exposed surface of the product may be pressed into the pocket with the edge of a wax spatula or the back of a curette. Pressure may be applied to the gingival margin to avoid dislodging the polymer inadvertently. As the product is biodegradable, removal at a subsequent visit is not required.
