Solution Calcium Gluconate
1 ml of the drug contains:
calcium gluconate – 200 mg
The liquid is colorless or light yellow, transparent.
The drug replenishes calcium deficiency in the body, reduces the permeability of blood vessels
and tissues, accelerates blood clotting, has hemostatic, antioxidative, anti-allergic, anti-
inflammatory properties, reduces the effect of toxins. Calcium ions are involved in the
transmission of nerve impulses, contraction of smooth and striated muscles, blood clotting,
bone formation, the functioning of the myocardium, and other systems and organs. Less
irritating to tissues at the injection site than calcium chloride.
When administered parenterally, it is evenly distributed in organs and tissues, in plasma it is in
an ionized form, penetrates the placental barrier, and is excreted in milk. It is excreted from
the body mainly by the kidneys.
Treatment and prevention of animals for diseases caused by a deficiency or a decrease in
calcium metabolism in the body, especially with a decrease in its content in bones, rickets, at
the initial stages of inflammatory processes of various origins, with bleeding, hemorrhagic
diathesis, urticaria, rheumatic inflammation, pre-and postnatal deposits, postpartum paresis,
retention of the placenta, decalcification of the body during pregnancy and lactation, tetany of
pregnant women, eclampsia in bitches and sows, allergies and toxicosis.
Method of administration and dosage
Before using, the drug is warmed up to the body temperature of the animal and injected
intravenously, slowly, at a dose of 0.5 ml per 1 kg of body weight.

dogs – 5-25 ml.
It is possible to re-use the drug after 24 hours at the same dose.
The syringe with which the drug is injected should not contain residues of ethyl alcohol, since
this leads to precipitation of calcium gluconate.
The drug reduces the therapeutic effect of tetracyclines.
Do not administer to animals with hypercalcemia.
Store in a dry, dark place at temperatures from +5 to +25 ° С.
