WHAT IS AMP-5?
AMP-5 (Adenosine-5-monophosphate) is a potent natural vasodilator which increases blood circulation to both skeletal and cardiac muscle. It can be used in anticipation of severe cardiac load in athletic animals or as a treatment for myocardial oxygen deficit. Another common use is in situations where increased blood perfusion to lower legs and feet is required (laminitis, lower leg wounds).
HOW DOES IT WORK?
It increases oxygen and essential nutrient supply to the muscles and heart during hard work it also improves the efficiency of waste product removal such as lactic acid delaying 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.
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.
Delays the onset of muscle fatigue and cramping to allow the animal to train and race for longer periods and to prevent severe cardiac load. It also increases blood flow, energy, blood supply to muscle tissue and prevents heart strain.
Available in 50ml vials.
AMP 500mg/ml (50ml Vial)
ADMINISTRATION AND DOSAGE
Adult horses: Administer 10ml by intramuscular injection 24 hours and again 4 hours before hard work.
CAUTION: ADENOSINE MONOPHOSPHATE INJECTION must ONLY be administered by intramuscular injection (IM). DO NOT administer ADENOSINE MONOPHOSPHATE INJECTION by the intravenous (IV) route under any circumstances. This may lead to a profound rapid drop in blood pressure, with collapse and even death.
Store below 25°C (Air Conditioned). Protect from direct light.
