Reimagine Recovery

NOCITA® (bupivacaine lipsomone injectable suspension) is the only long-acting local anesthetic that provides up to 72 hours of post-operative pain control with one dose for cranial cruciate ligament (CCL) surgery in dogs and onychectomy in cats.

The extended duration of action assists in preventing analgesic gaps in the first 72 hours of post-surgery recovery, which helps to ensure pain control so that dogs and cats remain comfortable even after going home.

What Makes NOCITA Different?

The extended-release bupivacaine technology used in NOCITA consists of multivesicular liposomes composed of hundreds to thousands of chambers encapsulating aqueous bupivacaine.

Honeycomb matrix

The liposomes are microscopic structures made of nonconcentric lipid bilayers resembling a honeycomb-like matrix and are designed to allow bupivacaine to gradually release from vesicles over a period of time.

We know NOCITA is among ‘best practices’ and offers confidence that patient comfort and recovery are maximized.
