Surpass topical cream contains 1% diclofenac sodium. Diclofenac is a prescription non-narcotic, non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID) that controls pain. Diclofenac is used for the control of pain and inflammation associated with osteoarthritis (OA) in hock, knee, fetlock or pastern joints in horses.
While Surpass topical cream is not a cure for osteoarthritis, it does control the pain and inflammation associated with OA and increases the horse’s mobility. The response to Surpass cream will vary from horse to horse. In most horses, maximum improvement is seen in less than one week.
Dosage: A 5 inch ribbon completely rubbed in twice a day works wonders…
Apply a five-inch (5") ribbon of Surpass topical cream twice daily over the affected joint for up to ten days.
Administration: Wear rubber gloves to prevent absorption into the hands. Rub the cream thoroughly into the hair covering the joint until it disappears.
Warnings: Keep out of reach of children. Not for human use. Consult a physician in case of accidental ingestion by humans. If contact occurs, the skin should be washed immediately with soap and water.
Storage: Store at up to 25°C (77°F). Protect from freezing.
