Designed for safety and speed in the farm environment.
NumOcaine is the approved local anaesthetic for Numnuts. It works by affecting the permeability of nerve cell membranes to sodium ions, thus blocking nerve impulse transmission. All nerves are effected but those concerned with pain and temperature are most sensitive. Onset of action is rapid when given by injection.
Engineered to work around your current tail docking and castration process with rubber rings. NumOcaine comes in 100mL bottles, giving 65 procedures per bottle.
The QCC technology removes the need for cumbersome tubes.
QCC technology enables fast broaching and attachment to the Numnuts device.
The QCC acts as tamper security so you know you’re buying genuine NumOcaine. It also limits access to the local anaesthetic when not attached to a Numnuts device.
It’s designed to be simple and fast. Simply push the orange cap down to broach the bottle and twist the bottle onto the Numnuts device.
To prime, open the tool using the handle and press the plunger 2-3 times until you see the fluid chamber fill up.
Currently, the Numnuts system (including NumOcaine) is only available in Australia. Under APVMA regulations, NumOcaine is classified as an S4 drug, and so can only be supplied by a Vet.
Contact your usual vet (the vet you already have a relationship with) to arrange your NumOcaine supply. If they are not already a NumOcaine stockist they can quickly and easily register with us using our online form. If you do not already have an ongoing vet relationship, you can use our Interactive Vet Map to locate a local NumOcaine Vet stockist.
Please be aware that a vet must have a ‘bona fide‘ professional relationship with you to be able to prescribe NumOcaine to your flock, as per AVPMA regulations.
At the point of assembly, we run each QCC through a test exercise to check it’s fit for purpose before it is attached to a NumOcaine bottles and distributed. We do this with the QCC’s to ensure success on the field.
