Iron injectable for horses 2%

More info

Disclaimer: Product in the photo may differ from the actual product.


Hippiron is an injectable solution. Each ml of the solution contains: 20 mg of iron as Iron (III)-hydroxide Sucrose Complex.


Hippiron ad us. vet. is a sterile, pyrogen-free, alkaline solution for the therapy of iron deficiency anaemia in horses. The iron in the injection solution is present in trivalent form as a macromolecular Iron (III)-hydroxide Sucrose Complex. Iron (III)- hydroxide is absorbed as ferritin (depot iron) by the liver, from where its is transported as transferrin to the site of erythropoiesis. The normalisation of the Hb value and replenishment of the iron depot is faster and safer with Hippiron than with oral iron preparations.

Very occasionally, anaphylactic reactions can occur. Countermeasures must be available for the treatment of a possible anaphylactic shock.

Dosage and administration:

Hippiron is only suitable for slow intravenous injection into the jugular vein by mixing with the horse’s blood. The recommended daily dose:
- for Foals is 10 ml (200 mg of Fe(III)) per day
- Yearlings and adult horses is 20 ml (400 mg of Fe(III)) per day or 50 ml (1000 mg of Fe(III)) every second day.
The duration of treatment depends upon the severity of the iron deficiency, for the determination of which both the haemoglobin level and the depot iron must be taken into consideration. Clinical trials have shown that 10 injections of 20 ml or 4 injections of 50 ml of Hippiron are usually sufficient to normalise the blood levels, even if the values were very low at the beginning of therapy.
