RSPCA statement on Tri-Solfen

The RSPCA has welcomed the news that animal pain relief product Tri-Solfen is now also registered for dehorning and disbudding of beef and dairy calves, as well as providing pain relief post-mulesing.

When painful procedures are necessary on farm, pain relief should always be provided, so the news of further uses for Tri-Solfen means more options are now widely available for farmers.

The RSPCA said the availability and use of pain relief products such as the topical anaesthetic Tri-Solfen, the Meloxicam buccalgesic, and the Metacam injectable, particularly when used in combination, is crucial for maintaining good animal welfare on farm. With more options now available, there’s simply no reason for not providing pain relief for animals when undertaking painful procedures.
