Catosal™ (10% Butaphosphan+cyanocobalamin) Sterile Solution, the first and only injectable source of vitamin B12 and phosphorus, is now available for prevention or treatment of deficiencies of these nutrients in cattle, swine, horses and poultry in the United States. Available only by prescription from a veterinarian, Catosal is an important adjunct therapy for animals that are convalescing or susceptible to behavioral or environmental stress. Deficiencies of B12 or phosphorus are associated with delayed recovery; and, as a source of B12 and phosphorus, Catosal prevents and treats these deficiencies. Nutrient deficiencies and other serious problems, especially in recovering animals, frequently occur due to stress caused by numerous factors including calving, shipping and environmental conditions. Stress causes the hormone cortisol to be released into the bloodstream, which can impair the immune response, cause loss of appetite, increase susceptibility to disease and reduce growth rate. Catosal™ (10% Butaphosphan+cyanocobalamin) Sterile Solution minimizes the effects of nutrient and mineral deficiencies by providing B12, the vitamin compound associated with enhanced liver metabolism and healthy immune response, and Butaphosphan, a unique organic source of phosphorus with a more complex molecular structure than other forms of phosphorous used in food-animal production.
