Tri-Solfen® is a Veterinarian prescribed, farmer applied pain relief product sprayed directly onto the wound during surgical procedures such as castration, tail docking and disbudding. The product is designed to provide an adhesive barrier over the wound, numbing the area and minimising bleeding whilst providing protection against infection.The use of Tri-Solfen® is recommended by leading livestock industries, international retailers, animal welfare groups (including the RSPCA and CIWF) and highly respected welfare scientist such as Temple Grandin and Professor Peter Windsor. There has been over 80 million animals successfully treated with Tri-Solfen® addressing the urgent needs of producers and their customers to improve animal welfare outcomes. Pain management in livestock production is top of mind for many producers who want to improve animal welfare outcomes, for veterinarians who have the difficult task to help producers to improve welfare standards in a practical and cost effective manner and for consumers and governments that are increasingly demanding the improved humane treatment of animals. This has lead to livestock supply chains globally creating and enforcing new strict animal welfare codes with large retailers requiring producers to implement practices to improve the wellbeing of animals including the alleviation of pain. Currently available pain treatments are either costly or impractical for use, disrupting management practices. Tri-Solfen® is an innovative solution developed with producers and their animals in mind providing a practical solution for improved animal welfare outcome.
