Soloxine provides replacement therapy in conditions such as hypothyroidism, where the pet's thyroid gland is not producing enough of the hormone thyroxine. Commonly caused by atrophy of the thyroid gland, hypothyroidism is common in middle age to older dogs.
Active ingredient: Levothyroxine Sodium.
Safe at recommended dosage.
No known side effects at recommended dosage level. Overdosage may cause thyrotoxicosis, which is identified by polydipsia, polyuria, polyphagia, reduced heat tolerance, hyperactivity or personality change.
Administer with caution to animals with clinically significant heart disease, hypertension or other complications where a sharply increased metabolic rate might prove hazardous. Do not use in dogs with hyperthyroidism or thyrotoxicosis. Do not use in dogs who are hypersensitive to any of the ingredients.
Safety in pregnant or lactating bitches has not been determined. It generally takes several weeks to see results. Thyroid replacement therapy is usually necessary for the remainder of the pet's life.
Disposal of unused prescription medications:
- Revival Animal Health participates in the Take Away Environmental Return System which provides an environmentally safe destruction program.
- The preferred method of drug disposal is to return the unwanted product to a pharmacy that participates in the Take Away Environmental Return System. Seek a local pharmacy that participates in this program for safe disposal.
- A secondary method of drug disposal is to remove the unwanted medication from any wrappers or containers and place it in a plastic bag with moist coffee grounds or cat litter. This can be disposed of in the regular garbage collection.
- Please do NOT dispose of unwanted meds down the drain or toilet, as this may eventually find its way into the human water supply.
Disposal of medical sharps:
- When you're finished with the syringe and needle, do not try to recap, remove, bend or break the needle. This is where most injuries occur.
- Dispose the syringe and needle immediately in a nearby sharps container. All sharps must be deposited in a puncture-proof container. Make sure your storage location is child and animal proof.
- As with all product handling, make sure you wash your hands after handling medical sharps.
Disposal of sharps container:
- When your sharps container is half-full, sift dry Portland Cement throughout the sharps. Fill the container with water, and rotate until the cement is mixed and the sharps have been distributed throughout the cement mixture. Let cement dry for 24 hours.
- Seal the lid of the container tightly and use duct tape to seal. Label the container "Livestock Sharps" to properly identify the contents.
- Dispose of the containers in accordance with your state's regulations.
