When should ENDOSERUM be used?

When administered to horses, ENDOSERUM® increases circulating levels of IgG anti-endotoxin antibodies. Administration of ENDOSERUM® should be considered when clinical signs and/or laboratory data indicate impending or ongoing Gram-negative endotoxemia in adult horses or foals. Specific indications include foals that have failed to receive adequate passive transfer of Gram negative maternal antibodies via colostrum, horses recovering from abdominal surgery, horses suffering from Gram negative bacteremia, Gram negative metritis, Gram negative diarrhea and gastrointestinal disorders due to carbohydrate overload. Because of the severe responses Gram negative endotoxins cause in horses, early diagnosis and treatment are of utmost importance.
