Pharmacokinetics and pharmacodynamics of pantoprazole in calves
Abomasal ulcers occur commonly in veal calves as well as and hospitalized beef calves. One of the recognized therapeutic interventions for abomasal and gastric ulceration is the increase of the gastric pH. The lack of efficacy data for gastroprotectants, such as pantoprazole, for ulcer prevention and treatment in cattle is a health and welfare issue. The goal of this study was to investigate the pharmacokinetics and pharmacodynamics of pantoprazole administered to healthy calves.
