What is Flunixin meglumine?
Flunixin meglumine is a veterinary anti-inflammatory and analgesic. Flunixin meglumine has antipyretic, anti-inflammatory and analgesic effects. It can significantly improve clinical symptoms and enhance the activity of antibiotics when used alone or in combination with antibiotics.
Flunixin meglumine mechanism of action
Flunixin meglumine is an inhibitor of cyclooxygenase. By inhibiting cyclooxygenase in the arachidonic acid reaction chain, it reduces the production of inflammatory mediators such as prostaglandins and thromboxane, and maintains normal blood pressure and reduces blood vessels. Endothelial cell damage, maintenance of normal blood volume, etc., prevent E. coli endotoxin from causing increased intrabronchial exudates in respiratory diseases, neutrophils and albumin accumulation in exudates, etc., and effectively relieve the body Fever, inflammation and pain.
What are the Flunixin meglumine side effects?
Flunixin meglumine toxicity
According to EMEA reports, flunixin meglumine is less toxic. Acute toxicity tests have shown that the LD50 of oral, intramuscular, and intravenous injections in mice are 170, 303, and 111 mg/kg body weight, respectively; rat oral and intramuscular The LD50 for injection and intravenous injection were 113 mg/kg, 180 mg/kg, and 90 mg/kg body weight respectively.
The cow was injected with flunixin meglumine injection at a dose of 6.6 mg/kg body weight (3 times the usual dose). There was no abnormal reaction and showed good tolerance. In addition, special toxicity tests have shown that flunixin meglumine has no "three-causing" effects (teratogenic, carcinogenic, mutagenic) and reproductive toxicity.

Flunixin use as a veterinary medicine
Used in cattle to treat respiratory diseases. Used in dogs to treat arthritis, fever, diarrhea, tremor, eye infections, etc. Used in pigs to treat diarrhea, etc.

It is usually used in cases of colic (abdominal pain) to make the horse more comfortable, thereby reducing the risk of injury to the horse and the operator. It is important to note that flunixin does not cure the cause of colic. It temporarily relieves signs by relieving pain.
Flunixin can reduce fever.
The temperature of a normal horse is between 98.5 and 100.9°F. Like humans, horses may have fever due to infection or disease. Many high fever horses do not eat or drink when they have a fever, but once the fever decreases, their appetite will improve.

Limitations of BALLYA Flunixin Test?
BALLYA Flunixin Test is a qualitative test kit. It’s only for screening purpose. If have positive cases or suspected case, maybe use other detection method to make a further detection, such as, ELISA, PCR, qPCR, etc.
As a pharmaceutical feed additive, flunixin can significantly promote weight gain and increase feed conversion rate, and is widely used in the field of livestock and poultry breeding. However, many people do not pay attention to the dosage and usage of flunixin, which leads to the residue of flunixin in food. Flunixin is harmful to the human body and should be avoided as much as possible. The BALLYA Flunixin Test provided by BALLYA can effectively detect the flunixin in the samples.
