Acecare® is used alongside other opioids, including Buprecare® (buprenorphine) and Synthadon®(methadone).  It reduces the amount of anaesthetic necessary to induce anaesthesia by approximately one third.


Commenting, Animalcare Product Manager Eleanor Workman Wright said: “Practices are looking for greater cost-effectiveness in the products they use and are also keen to reduce waste.  We are delighted to announce that Acecare®, a trusted staple of anaesthetic protocols in use at many practices is now offering improved performance in both of these areas.”
