TVM UK has announced the launch of a bumper-sized pack of Emedog, its apomorphine emetic, in preparation for the Christmas season.

The company points out that poisoning cases rise dramatically over Christmas, when food that is poisonous to dogs is more likely to be left out and owners are more relaxed (is that a euphemism, TVM?).

For that reason, the Emedog bumper pack contains 20 x 1ml single use vials - four times more than the regular pack and retails at £251.76 a saving of 10% compared to purchasing four regular packs.

Dosage is one vial injected subcutaneously per 10kg and vials have a three-year unopened shelf life, which should minise wastage.

Will Peel MRCVS, Product Manager at TVM UK said: "The number of poisoned animals seen by vets rises dramatically over the festive season so it’s vital that vets have enough product to see them through this time. The Emedog bumper pack will ensure that they are prepared for Christmas with the resources they need to deal with such cases."

The Emedog bumper pack is available from November 2019 from all veterinary wholesalers.
