Horse, cattle, sheep and swine:
-Local anaesthesia with a long-lasting anaesthetic effect.

Administration and Dosage
For subcutaneous and perineural use:
Local anaesthesia or by infiltration: 2-8 ml of the product/animal.
Perineural anaesthesia: 4-8 ml of the product/animal.
For lower limb blocks in horses, the dose should be divided between two or more injection sites depending on the dose.
Do not use in animals in state of shock. Do not use in animals with cardiovascular problems.
Do not use in animals treated with sulphonamides or phenothiazine.
Do not use with cyclopropane- or halothane-based volatile anaesthetics.
Do not use to anaesthetise regions with terminal circulation (ears, tail, etc.).
Do not use in cases of hypersensitivity to the active substance or to any of the excipients.
Do not administer by the intravenous or the intra-articular route.
Procaine may cause hypotension in very rare cases.
Particularly in horses, phenomena of excitability to the CNS may be observed (agitation, tremors, convulsions) following the administration of procaine, in very rare occasions.
Perform local anaesthesia at ambient temperature. At higher temperatures, the risk of toxic reactions is higher owing to the greater absorption of procaine. As with other local anaesthetics containing procaine, the product should be used with caution in animals with epilepsy or with changes in respiratory or renal function.
