What is Bisolvon power
Bisolvon power contains the active ingredient bromhexine hydrochloride. Bisolvon sachets are used as an aid to the treatment of respiratory disease in cattle, pigs, dogs and cats where mucus is a complicating factor. Bisolvon is a prescription-only medication and as such may only be obtained upon receipt of a valid Vet Prescription.
How do Bisolvon sachets work?
Bisolvon is known as a mucolytic. This medication causes the thick mucous that may develop during the course of respiratory disease to break down into a thinner phlegm that can subsequently be coughed up.
What are the symptoms of lung disease in animals?
Respiratory disease in dogs can present in a number of different ways. Sometimes dogs will cough or show increased respiratory rate and effort. Some will appear to use their tummy as bellows in order to meet their oxygen demands. Affected dogs may seem more lethargic or depressed and may tire more easily. Cats respond to respiratory disease slightly differently. Cats are less likely to cough than dogs and often only display overt signs of respiratory compromise later in the course of the disease. Signs to look out for are increased breathing rates, increased breathing effort and open-mouthed breathing. Cats that pant or breathe through their mouth are often suffering from some degree of respiratory embarrassment and veterinary attention should be sought immediately.
How does Bisolvon powder help with respiratory disease in animals?
Bisolvon helps with wheezes and rattles in the chest by clearing the bronchioles of thick mucous, allowing the phlegm to be coughed up and swallowed.
Bisolvon is available as 5g sachets for dogs, cats, pigs and cows.
A Veterinary Prescription is Required for Bisolvon
