Coforta® has been popular amongst horse owners, particularly those with performance horses, for many years. Coforta® contains butaphosphan, a readily available source of phosphorus and vitamin B12, providing an energy source that can be mobilised and used quickly. Coforta® stimulates glycogen metabolism, the ADP/ATP energy cycle, and helps restore the energy reserves of fatigued muscles.

Coforta can be administered by intramuscular or subcutaneous injection and can be given daily if required. The dose rate for adult horses ranges from 5-25mL, and for foals 5-12mL. When volumes over 20 mL are used, the dose should be split and given at several sites. All injection equipment should be sterilised prior to use. To minimise the risk of infection, swab the injection site beforehand with an iodine-based antiseptic - such as Vetadine.
Maintain cleanliness at all times. Keep needles sharp and clean. Use needles of appropriate gauge (18-21 gauge) and length, and no longer than 15mm for subcutaneous injections. Subcutaneous injections should be made under the skin - high on the neck and behind the ear. Intramuscular injections should be given into the neck muscle. In cases of chronic disease, the dose may be halved and repeated at intervals of 1-2 weeks or less. In healthy animals, the dose should also be halved.
