AMP-5 Injection (20ml)
Potent vasodilator to increase blood flow to cardiac and skeletal muscle
Adenosine-5-monophosphate 200 mg/mL
Features and Benefits
AMP-5 is indicated for use in anticipation of severe cardiac load in performance horses, as well as in situations where increased blood perfusion to lower legs and feet is required (laminitis, lower leg wounds), or in treatment of myocardial oxygen deficit as evidenced by performance linked ECG changes. Because of its ability to improve tissue blood supply AMP-5 is of value in preventing Tying Up Syndrome.
By producing a marked increase in blood supply to muscles and heart, AMP-5 increases the oxygen and essential nutrient supply to these areas during hard work, and improves the efficiency of removal of waste products such as lactic acid, to delay the onset of muscle fatigue. AMP-5 is of value in treatment and prevention of Tying Up for these reasons. Because of its potent vasodilation effect on cardiac muscles, AMP-5 is effective in treatment and prevention of heart strain and exercise induced “T Wave” changes in horses.
Dosage and Administration
If AMP-5 is given immediately before anticipated severe cardiac load (hard work), it may protect a susceptible horse from exertional cardiac T wave ECG changes, and improve blood and nutrient supply, as well as waste product removal, from hard working cardiac and skeletal muscle.
Give Horses 10 mL by either paste or intramuscular injection, 24 hours and again 4 hours before hard work.
AMP-5 must ONLY be administered by intramuscular injection, or paste formulation.
Do not administer AMP-5 injection by the intravenous route under any circumstances. This may lead to a profound rapid drop in blood pressure, with collapse, and even death.
AMP-5 is commonly used in combination with CREATINE, TRIPART or L-CARNITINE.
AMP-5 is safely used with all Nature Vet products.
Store below 25o C (Air Conditioning). Protect from light.
20 mL sterile injection for intramuscular injection only.
APVMA Approval Number
May benefit from the combination of AMP-5 and CREATINE. “Load” CREATINE with daily doses for at least three days leading up to race, and give AMP-5 24 hours, and again 3 – 4 hours pre-event.
Use AMP-5 in combination with COPHOS B 24 hours and again 4 – 6 hours pre-event, to improve blood and nutrient supply to hard working muscles, improve the elimination of wastes such as lactic acid, and improve the neutralising of lactic acid by providing phosphate, the primary muscle buffer.
AMP-5 given 24 hours, and again 4 hours pre-event, with TRIPART at 48 hours, 24 hours, and 4 – 6 hours pre-event may help to delay the onset of muscle fatigue and cramping.
