Why use Tri-Solfen?

Tri-Solfen is a unique 4-in1 wound care product.

Tri-Solfen provides:

  • Pain relief
  • Reduced bleeding
  • Infection control
  • Wound care

Tri-Solfen is the only product registered in Australia for sheep and cattle that has all these modes of action, leaving it unrivalled for these types of surgical wounds.

How does Tri-Solfen work?

Tri-Solfen is a viscous liquid that is easily applied to surgical wounds. When applied correctly with the dedicated Tri-Solfen applicator it forms a foaming gel over the wound that helps to protect the wound from secondary infection and aids in the wound healing process.

Tri-Solfen is a 4-in-1 wound care product

  • Both fast and longer acting pain relief
    • Lignocaine is a fast-acting anaesthetic providing animals with fast-acting pain relief.
    • Bupivacaine is a longer-acting anaesthetic that provides prolonged pain relief
  • Reduction in post-operative bleeding
    • Adrenaline constricts blood vessels reducing the loss of blood
  • Reduces wound healing time
    • Cetrimide is an antiseptic agent that helps reduce the risk of infection of wounds
  • Reducing inflammation and long-term pain
    • Reducing bleeding and infection helps to minimise the inflammation process, reducing and slowing down the pain cascade process

Tri-Solfen pain relief is a local anaesthetic and antiseptic gel spray that adheres to wounds and acts to numb the wound with a long-lasting analgesic effect. It also contains active ingredients designed to minimise bleeding, protect against infection, coat the wound and promote healing.

TriSolfen’s unique gel formulation can be easily applied on-farm as a one-off treatment to surgical wounds. Tri-Solfen pain relief contains two proven topical local anaesthetics; fast-acting lignocaine for immediate pain relief and long-acting bupivacaine for prolonged post-operative pain relief. Adrenaline is included for its ability to reduce blood loss, whilst prolonging the anaesthetic action.

Tri-Solfen Pain Relief also contains Cetrimide, an antiseptic widely used to cleanse skin and wounds, to provide protection from bacterial contamination. Tri-Solfen’s gel base adheres well to the wound and acts as a barrier to environmental stimuli to improve wound healing.

In Sheep Trisolfen is sprayed onto the wound to simultaneously anesthetize, alleviate pain, control bleeding and protect against infection. Its viscous gel base is also designed to form a long-lasting protective barrier over the wound.

Tri-Solfen Pain Relief is proven to be highly successful in the treatment of accidental wounds, castration, tail docking, branding and disbudding in several species. Extensive trials have indicated that the onset of wound anaesthesia is very rapid and readily apparent within one minute of application and there is evidence of a significant ongoing analgesic effect even after 24 hours.

Pack Sizes: 1L, 5L & 20L

    I wont cut or dehorn without it. Does a great job of helping the animal get over marking and continue grazing or drinking from mum, not laying about feeling sorry for itself. Stops infections and growth setbacks.

Directions Of Use

Use of the special Tri-Solfen applicator is recommended.

Mulesing and tail docking in lambs:

  • Ensure that the entire wound area is evenly covered with spray, particularly wound edges. 
  • Do not spray to runoff.
  • Insecticidal preparations registered to treat mulesing wounds can be applied after the application of Tri-Solfen. However, high volume fly treatments are not suitable to be used as they are likely to wash the Tri-Solfen from the wound.

Lambs (11kg – 15kg) 8mL
Lambs (16kg – 20kg) 10mL

  • Eject one third (1/3) of the total Tri-Solfen dose as the applicator is withdrawn from the scrotum to coat the spermatic cord.
  • Insert nozzle through the other scrotal incision and apply one third(1/3) of total Tri-Solfen dose to the spermatic cord (as described above).
  • After application of Tri-Solfen to the spermatic cords, the testicles can be extracted from the scrotum and removed as per the normal procedure.

  • Repeat step 2 for the second horn, also ensuring the wound and surrounding affected tissues are completely covered.

    The APVMA, which oversees the registration of Tri-Solfen - Pain Relief For Lambs And Calves in Australia, has approved a nine-month shelf life for the 1L & 5L packs and six months for the 20L containers.  The short shelf life is to do with the Adrenaline component used to make Tri-Solfen.  As Tri-Solfen is packaged in HDPE containers and not glass as is typical for Adrenaline products, it may escape over time, reducing the pain relief efficacy of the product.

    Tri-Solfen offers both fast and longer-acting pain relief.  Bupivacaine is the longer-acting anaesthetic used in Tri-Solfen that provides prolonged pain relief.  It blocks the nerve signals from damaged tissue responsible for the sensation of pain.  Although not recommended when using castration rings, Tri-Solfen will provide pain relief to the area where it is applied.
