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

    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 distirbances (hypernatremia) due to loss of excess free body water in the gut. Dehydration and hypotension have been reported with excee catarsis. 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.
