  • What is the best way to use MediGel CPF?

    We recommend placing one cup of MediGel CPF on the cage floor with the animals 48 hours prior to surgery and then another cup after surgery. Animals will readily consume the gel providing them an oral dosage of carprofen equivalent to 5mg/kg/day. The consumption of MediGel CPF prior to surgery ensures that there is sufficient analgesia in their system for post-surgery pain management.

  • How do I ensure that my animals receive an effective dose of carprofen?

    We designed the product to be readily consumed at a rate of ~5 grams per day. Based on this consumption rate, animals will receive an effective dose in the range of 5mg/kg/day. Studies indicate that mice receive a consistent dosage over the post-op recovery phase, in contrast to peaks and valleys associated with injections.

  • Will my animals overdose on MediGel CPF?

    No. One mouse/rat would need to eat the equivalent of two gels (equivalent to 160 grams of food) in 24 hours for this to be a concern. This is not possible given the consumption rates of rodents.
