Description

ToxiBan® is most effective administered as soon as ingestion of a toxicant is suspected. It may be used in some emergencies when absorption of the toxicant is nearly complete or the exposure was via a parenteral route. This latter application usually involves repetitive or multiple doses. Multiple doses may be used to interrupt the enterohepatic circulation of some toxins, thereby preventing thier reabsorption.

Advantages

Activated charcoal is generally called the "universal antidote" by toxicologists, since it is active in adsorbing most toxicants except inorganic salts and heavy metals. Toxiban is the "gold standard" for treating animal poisioning.

  • Available in three formulations (granules, suspension and suspension with Sorbitol)
  • MedCharTM, activated charcoal, USP, adsorbs toxins in the gastrointestinal tract
  • Kaolin adds extra adsorbing qualities while protecting the intestinal lining
  • Sorbitol is a mild hyperosmotic cathartic

Ingredients

Active Ingredients Per ml
Medchar™
(Activated charcoal)
100.0 mg
Sorbitol solution, USP 100.0 mg
Kaolin 62.5 mg

Useful Information

The recommended dosage is 10 to 20 ml per kg body weight (5 to 10 ml per lb). Rinse liquid receptacle with water and administer rinsings. Give orally by causing the animal to drink the dose either as is or mixed with a small amount of water. Consult a veterinarian should administration by stomach tube be needed.

Note: Osmotic cathartics may be associated with electrolyte disturbances (hypernatremia) due to loss of excess free body water in the gut. Dehydration and hypotension have been reported with excess catharsis. Cathartics should only be used with the initial charcoal dose. If charcoal is still required, use Toxiban® Suspension or Granules at the lower dosage every 6-8 hours for 3 treatments.

CAUTION: Do not use in animals with ileus or intestinal obstruction. Toxiban® Suspension with Sorbitol may not be effective against lead, mercury, inorganic, arsenic or other heavy metals. Toxiban® Suspension with Sorbitol should not be given in conjunction with oral chemotherapy as the charcoal may adsorb the therapeutic agent.

Why does it say to discard within 48 hours after opening? Can it be kept refrigerated after opening? My vet says they leave it on the shelf and keep using it after opening.
1 Answer
Hi Lee, before using this product, I would talk to your vet. This has certain chemicals in there that are used for the stomach problems. This should be stored in room temperature only.

Where can I purchase atropine sulfate? Will this product not work without it?
1 Answer
Hey, you can purchase atropine sulfate at the following web address: http://entirelypetspharmacy.com/atropine-sulfate-ophthalmic-solution-15ml.html You only need to combine it with atropine sulfate when using the suspension to adsorb organophosphates and carbamates, which include a variety of chemicals that are included in some insecticides. It can provide benefits when used independently or with 2-PAM (2-pyridine aldoxime methyl chloride, which I cannot find for purchase for the life of me- sorry!). For a list of organophosphates found in insecticides, see the following list of chemicals, provided by drugs.com: Abate, azinphos methyl, azodrin, bidrin, carbophenothion, Ciodrin, chlorfenvinphos, coumaphos, dasanit, demeton, fensulfothion, dichlofenthion, dichlorvos, dimethoate, dioxathion, disulfoton, dursban, dyfonate, EPN, ethion, famphur, fenthion, Imidan, malathion, methyl parathion, methyl trithion, mevinphos, mocap, parathion, naled, phorate, phosdrin, phosphamidon, rabon, ronnel, Ruelene, tepp, and trichlorfon. For a list of carbamates found in insecticides, see the following list of chemicals, provided by drugs.com: Baygon, BUX, carbaryl, carbofuran, and landrin.
