Veta K-1 for Hypoprothrombinemia
Veta K-1 helps counter hypoprothrombinemia in dogs through vitamin K oral capsules. The hypoprothrombinemia that is treatable with Veta K-1 can occur by ingestion of coumarin-based compounds, common ingredients in commercial rodenticides, or as a result of interference with vitamin k metabolism through a drug induced hypoprothrombinemia. Vitamin K helps stimulate the production of active prothrombin from a precursor protein. Each capsule contains 50 mg of phytonadione.
For use in the treatment of hypoprothrombinemia
For use in large dogs
Directions: For use in large dogs.
Hypoprothrombinemia (with hemorrhage) - Administer orally at the rate of 2.5-5 mg/kg body weight (1 capsule per each 44 pounds of body weight for lower dosage or 1 capsule per each 22 pounds of body weight for higher dosage) daily as conditions require up to 3 weeks. Frequency and amount of oral administration should be guided by regular determination of prothrombin time. The smallest effective dose should be sought to minimize the risk of adverse reaction.
