ONCE-DAILY* 24‑HOUR CONTINUOUS SURGICAL PAIN CONTROL FOR CATSORDER SIMBADOL
See full Prescribing Information, including the complete Boxed Warning for human safety.
In two large clinical studies, SIMBADOL
(buprenorphine injection) was well
tolerated and demonstrated safety and
efficacy for postoperative pain control

TREATMENT SUCCESS FOR
SIMBADOL TREATED CATS
Successful treatment defined as a cat not requiring rescue analgesia during the 72-hour observation period.
In Soft Tissue Surgery and Orthopedic Surgery studies, the majority of adverse events were mild in severity and either typical opioid reactions or were similar to the placebo group in frequency.3,4
