Medical Ethics is working with veterinarians and research partners (ANU and Sydney University) to investigate the use of Tri-Solfen® formulation for pain alleviation following surgical procedures and traumatic wounds in companion animals – including dogs, horses, native animals and laboratory animals.
We believe our transformational way of mitigating pain and minimising suffering associated with wounds will make a real difference for vets treating companion animals in the same way we have witnessed with livestock.
Tri-Solfen® is a local anaesthetic and antiseptic gel spray that adheres well to wounds and acts as a barrier to environmental stimuli, promotes haemostasis and improves wound healing. Tri-Solfen® contains two proven topical local anaesthetics; fast-acting Lignocaine for immediate pain relief and long-acting local anaesthetic for prolonged postoperative pain relief. Adrenaline is included for its ability to reduce the shock and stress of blood loss, whilst prolonging the anaesthetic action. Tri-Solfen® also contains Cetrimide; an antiseptic widely used to cleanse skin and wounds and provides protection from bacterial contamination.
Tri-Solfen® is registered, in Australia & New Zealand, for cattle & sheep, only. For further information regarding horses and other animals, please contact your local vet.Product pipeline News article
Shonnay Smith, a horse owner in Queensland, Australia and her vet Andrew Marland of Vet Cross discuss the advantages of using the Medical Ethics Tri-Solfen® product for horses. In the example shown, a wounded horse not used to being handled is treated with Tri-Solfen® instead of the usual bandaging procedure with impressive results.
If you are a veterinarian currently using Tri-Solfen® off-label for use with horses, please download and complete our questionnaire. The completion of this questionnaire and returning it to us with your photographs will help us understand the efficacy of the Tri-Solfen® product when used for treatment on horses.
Please return all four pages as a scan, or photographs of the completed pages, along with any photographs of the wound and progression through treatment, or fill the questionnaire in using Adobe Acrobat and return it to us (for details see questionnaire).
