Ekyflogyl Gel for horses

Audevard releases Ekyflogyl Gel for horses in the UK, which provides a topical corticosteroid solution to help horses get back on track

Audevard has gained marketing autherisation for Ekyflogyl Gel for horses, which provides a topical corticosteroid solution to help horses get back on track.

This new marketing authorisation confirms the 100 percent equine focus of Audevard, complimenting
their existing equine orthopaedic range which includes Equioxx and Tildren thus providing unique medicines to UK Equine vets.

Ekyflogyl Gel is the only topical corticosteroid gel for horses approved in the UK.

Ekyflogyl Gel is a bestselling solution on the continent and is already known by many UK equine vets for its efficacy, versatility and ease of use. It is now widely available with all UK wholesalers. The gel has a unique composition of three ingredients: prednisolone, lidocaine and dimethyl sulfoxide (DMSO). The formula of this unique topical gel is indicated for the treatment of localised musculoskeletal disorders such as tendinitis, splints, arthritis, desmitis, muscle strain and haematoma.

These ingredients have three distinctive roles: prednisolone is a deep-acting corticosteroid with anti-inflammatory and analgesic properties. Lidocaine is a fast-acting local anaesthetic with a direct action
on the pain transmission, and DMSO is an essential vehicle to promote penetration of active substances
through the skin.

Localised musculoskeletal disorders are a frequent ailment in all horses. Indeed 97 percent of owners have already encountered at least one sign of inflammation linked to a musculoskeletal disorder in their
horse* (according to a 2019 Audevard survey of 1,225 horse owners) and 92.9 percent of horses that start training develop at least one kind of musculoskeletal disorder.

Management of these cases is not an easy task. A topical treatment is a good solution to deal with localised inflammation and the pain without using a systemic treatment which could have an associated risk of side effects.

Ekyflogyl is available in a bottle of 125ml with dosing pump. The gel consistency allows an easy day-to-day application by the veterinarian or the horse owner.
