- Ventipulmin Syrup
Ventipulmin Syrup contains clenbuterol as the main ingredient. It is a colorless, slightly opalescent, viscous syrup with a very slight odor. Ventipulmin is a beta-2-adrenergic agonist approved by the FDA for management of airway obstruction. It has excellent absorption rates from the gastrointestinal tract following oral administration. The effects are long-lasting.
Ventipulmin Syrup is used as a bronchodilator for the treatment of reversible respiratory disease in horses. It relieves bronchospasms arising from a number of respiratory conditions, increases mucous secretions, improves airway resistance, and improves mucociliary transport by decreasing thickness of mucous.

Although experience has shown that high dosages may result in sweating, trembling, tachycardia, and excitement, no significant side effects were noted during clinical trials. If the dosage is gradually increased as recommended on the label, tolerance will develop and side effects will decrease.
If used in a pregnant mare, Ventipulmin must be discontinued 7 to 14 days prior to expected time of delivery since uterine contractions may be abolished under its influence. The effect on fertility of breeding stallions has not been determined.
Ventipulmin should not be used in horses suspected of having cardiovascular impairment.
Federal law prohibits the administration of this preparation to animals that are intended for consumption as food.
Ventipulmin Syrup is FDA-approved for use in horses and is a prescription drug restricted to use by or on the lawful written or oral order of a licensed veterinarian.
Check with the authorized individual regulatory board regarding use in competition horses.
Corticosteroids should not be used in conjunction with Ventipulmin Syrup since it antagonizes effects of prostaglandin and oxytocin. The action of Ventipulmin is antagonized by beta-blockers and should not be given at the same time.
Immediately check with your veterinarian if you suspect that your horse has received an overdose of Ventipulmin Syrup.
