Animalcare has launched Clevor, a fast-acting emetic administered as an eye drop.

The active ingredient of Clevor is ropinirole, which is a dopamine agonist with high selectivity for dopamine D2-type receptors1.

This, Animalcare says, means that Clevor only activates the receptors in the brain necessary to trigger emesis.

Clevor is also the only emetic product in the UK which is licensed for repeat-dosing1.

Clevor is available in packs of three eye dropper vials.

Each vial contains enough active ingredient to dose up to three, 20kg dogs at once, including a second dose if necessary1.

Kai Crawshaw, Animalcare UK Brand Manager said: ‘It’s hard to keep pets away from toxic substances so we are pleased to be able to offer vets a new treatment option for pet poisoning, just in time for Easter.

"Clevor is revolutionary in the field of emetics, offering veterinary practices a highly selective product with a non-invasive method of administration.

"We are confident that Clevor will quickly become a tried and trusted product of choice for those emergency situations.’
