MSD Animal Health has announced that Finadyne (flunixin meglumine), its NSAID for cattle, pigs and horses, has been reformulated and approved for use in food-producing animals.

Fynadyne had been removed from sale last year after the Veterinary Medicines Directorate suspended the sale of any medicinal products containing the excipient diethanolamine (DEA), following advice to the European Medicines Agency that it could pose a risk to human health.

Finadyne 50mg/ml Solution for Injection is indicated for the alleviation of acute inflammation and pain in both cattle and pigs. It is also indicated for the alleviation of inflammation and pain associated with musculo-skeletal disorders and colic in horses.

The reformulated product has a shelf life of three years and is now available from wholesalers in 50ml and 100ml vials.
