- Smooth: Propofol-induced excitement is uncommon even with low doses, so there is less stress for both the patient and operator
- Induction of anesthesia and maintenance of anesthesia for up to 20 minutes
- Extension of effect, with top-up doses if necessary
- Induction of general anesthesia prior to maintenance by an inhalant
- Convenient so your time is better spent with patients

- Flip-top vial
Fast and Smooth Recovery
- Rapid clearance: patients are typically standing within 20 minutes.
- Smooth: prompt recovery
- Versatile: able to use repeated top-up doses. Recovery time is not increased
- Convenient: pH of 7-8.5, so there is no irritation if accidentally injected perivascularly

Important PropoFlo Risk Information
Warnings, Precautions, and Contraindications:
When using propofol, patients should be continuously monitored, and facilities for the maintenance of a patent airway, artificial ventilation and oxygen supplementation must be immediately available. Propofol contains no antimicrobial preservatives. Strict aseptic techniques must always be maintained during handling since the vehicle is capable of supporting the rapid growth of microorganisms. Propofol injection is contraindicated in dogs with a known hypersensitivity to propofol or its components, or when general anesthesia or sedation are contraindicated.
The primary side effect of propofol is respiratory depression as evidenced by tachypnea and apnea.
PropoFlo is supplied in cartons of five 20 mL (200 mg per vial) vials containing 10 mg propofol per mL.
