Topical corticosteroid gel for horses launches

Audevard has launched the only topical corticosteroid gel for horses approved in the UK. (Coming Soon to NVS)

Ekyflogl Gel, a topical corticosteroid, complements the company’s existing equine focus, and adds to an existing orthopaedic range that includes Equioxx and Tildren.

A best-selling product on the continent, Ekyflogl Gel has a unique composition of 3 agents – prednisolone, lidocaine and dimethyl sulfoxide – and is indicated for the treatment of localised musculoskeletal disorders that include tendinitis, splints, arthritis, desmitis, muscle strain and haematoma.

Disorders

A frequent ailment in horses, 97% of owners say they have already encountered at least one sign of inflammation linked to a musculoskeletal disorder in their horse1, and 92.9% starting training develop at least one kind of disorder2.

Ekyflogl is available in bottles of 125ml, with a dosing pump. Audevard said the gel consistency allows for easy day-to-day application by the vet or horse owner.

For further information, contact an Audevard representative.
