Vulture safe painkiller

Veterinary Painkiller Second Vulture-Safe Identified! Tolfenamic Acid

9th September 2021

In 2003, the veterinary use of diclofenac to treat cattle was discovered to be the cause of catastrophic vulture declines across South Asia. There was an urgent need to identify alternative, safe NSAIDs for veterinary use. The NSAID meloxicam was tested in 2006 and found to be both safe to vultures and effective in treating cattle. Unfortunately, various other NSAIDs have also been tested since then and so far all have been shown to be toxic to vultures. Therefore, it is hugely significant that a systematic safety testing study led by the Indian Veterinary Research Institute (IVRI) with the Bombay Natural History Society (BNHS) and the Royal Society for the Protection of Birds (RSPB) has identified tolfenamic acid as the second confirmed vulture-safe NSAID after meloxicam.

A total of 38 wild-caught Himalayan Griffon Vultures, along with single captive White-rumped and Long-billed Vultures from the conservation breeding population, were given doses of tolfenamic acid by oral gavage at the maximum possible level likely to be encountered by birds feeding on carcasses in the wild. This was calculated based on concentrations of diclofenac found in cattle carcasses in India, which showed that vets and livestock owners routinely give doses of this drug much higher than the recommended level. In addition, four Himalayan Griffons were also fed buffalo meat from animals given double the recommended dose of tolfenamic acid just prior to death. Although two of the Himalayan Griffons given the extremely high dose by gavage died, all other birds survived without an increase in uric acid levels in the blood, which is the usual sign of kidney failure caused by NSAID poisoning. These findings show that tolfenamic acid is safe to wild vultures at levels of the drug that they are likely to be exposed to.

Dr Chandra Mohan, Scientist of IVRI and the lead investigator of the study said “Every painkiller available has slightly different properties, and the vets often complained of not having a second choice of NSAIDs. But we are very pleased to report that tolfenamic acid been found as a second safe NSAID drug.”

Dr Vibhu Prakash, Principal scientist and vulture programme Director of BNHS explained “by testing first on the less threatened Himalayan Griffon Vultures, we could establish the comparative safety of the drug. We then also tested it on the most threatened species held at the breeding centre at Pinjore, Haryana.”

The results of this study are reported in an IVRI report, while a pre-print publication, entitled “Experimental safety testing shows that the NSAID tolfenamic acid is not toxic to Gyps vultures in India at concentrations likely to be encountered in cattle carcasses” is freely available.

Dr A M Pawde, Incharge & Dr M. Karikalan, Scientist Centre for Wildlife, IVRI said “IVRI is particularly pleased to help identify this safe alternative for veterinarians, and it is important that this information is made available quickly, to avoid use of other more toxic alternatives (for the vultures) becoming popular in veterinary use.”  They added “Tolfenamic acid does have certain properties which make it slightly more similar to diclofenac in its ability to reduce fever as well as inflammation, and this may be important in being taken up more widely by vets across the country.”

Dr. Triveni Dutt, the Director of ICAR-Indian Veterinary Research Institute commented “this is good news for vulture conservation and can help decision-makers to take important steps towards banning the NSAIDs which are proven to be toxic, such as aceclofenac and ketoprofen.”

Tolfenamic acid is already licensed and produced by a number of different Indian manufacturers, being out of patent, and similarly priced to other drugs.

Professor Rhys Green of Cambridge University UK, and Chair of the SAVE consortium said “After sixteen years and considerable effort in safety testing NSAIDs on vultures we have found a second vulture-safe NSAID for use on cattle. This is important and welcome news. It will reduce the pressure to use toxic alternatives such as aceclofenac, ketoprofen, flunixin and nimesulide, which are still available and legally used in the region. Veterinary use of all of these toxic drugs should be banned immediately.”

He added “So this is highly significant, and good news for vulture conservation, but only if it helps decision-makers to take more urgently needed action to remove licenses for similar drugs that are proven to be toxic, such as aceclofenac and ketoprofen. Neighbouring Bangladesh has earlier this year taken this important and commendable step to extend local ketoprofen bans to national bans, and if India can do this for aceclofenac and ketoprofen, this will be real progress.”

Posted by Sidhiroy on September 02, 2021

 
Forum Post

DEHRADUN TO SANKRI

It is a spectacular 210km drive that takes you through the most beautiful forests of Dehradun. Sankri village is located at an elevation of approximately 2,000m. The trek takes you through the Govind Pshu Vihar National park and is possible in any season. The trek takes you through lush grasslands in summer. In winter, it gives you stunning views of snow-covered forests and high Himalayan peaks. There are many trekking routes to Kedarkantha. You can leave the trek from Sankri or Kotgaon, or Gaichawan Gaon.

 

By road: This 10-hour drive takes you through dense forests, which become engulfed by snow in winter.

SANKRI TO JUDA LAKE

Juda Lake (also known as Juda ka Talab) is a high-altitude lake between Sankri and Kedarkantha. This pristine lake is surrounded densely by forests, making it an ideal camping spot for trekkers on this route. Legend has it that Lord Shiva untwisted the locks to create the tiny lake. The road climbs steeply after crossing Sankri village. Along the route, you might see locals doing their daily chores. Winter is when the lake freezes and the surrounding area is covered in snow. Beautiful photos can be taken by stopping at streams that run through green fields during summer.

 

JUDA LAKE TO KEDARKANTHA BASE CAMP

You will leave Juda ka Talab the following day to trek to the Kedarkantha Base Camp, approximately 4 km away. It will take approximately 3 hours to get to your destination if you walk at a moderate pace. It passes through pine and oak forests along steep ridges. In summer, the route will be dotted with shepherds' huts, but it becomes a magical white land in winter.

 

KEDARKANTHA BASE CAMP TO KEDARKANTHA PEAK AND BACK TO THE HARGAON CLAMP

 

Start the next day at a 6 km pace from the Kedarkantha base camp to reach the Kedarkantha peak at 3,800m.

This section is not easy, but once you reach the summit, it will be worth it. The 360-degree view of the surrounding peaks (Kala Nag, Bandarpoonch and Swargarohini) is amazing.After a rest, you can take photographs and then descend to the Hargaon camp (Horegaon), at 2,700m. You will reach this camp by evening. Here you will be staying.

HARGAON TO SANKRI VIA JUDA LAKE

The 6-km trek takes approximately four hours. Through dense pine forests, you will quickly descend approximately 800m. Winter will bring you through deep and soft snow. You can easily slide or run down the snow because of its steepness. Local hotels are available for overnight stays.

SANKRI TO DEHRADUN

Spend the final day on your trek exploring Sankri village and the beautiful forests of Uttarakhand. Before you head for Dehradun (around 200 km), make memories.
