Dosage and administration
For oral administration.
When added to a portion of feed the product will be accepted by most horses.
The following should be used as a guide, according to individual response:
For a 480 kg bodyweight horse, the contents of 2 sachets should be administered twice daily (equivalent to 12.5 mg of suxibuzone/kg/day) for 2 days, followed by 1 sachet twice daily (6.25 mg of suxibuzone/kg/day) for 3 days. Thereafter, 1 sachet daily (3.1 mg of suxibuzone/kg/day) or on alternate days, or the minimum dose necessary for a satisfactory clinical response.
Ponies should receive only half the dose rate recommended for horses. Buy Danilon Equidos 1.5g Granules
For a 240 kg bodyweight pony, the contents of 1 sachet should be administered daily (equivalent to 6.25 mg of suxibuzone/kg/day) for 2 days, followed by 1/2 sachet daily (3.1 mg of suxibuzone/kg/day) for 3 days or 1 sachet on alternate days. Thereafter, reduce the dose to the minimum dose necessary for a satisfactory clinical response.
For administration of less than one sachet, use the measuring scoop provided. One full level scoop contains 5 g granules (equivalent to 1/2 sachet) and up to the green line level contains 2,5 g granules (equivalent to 1/4 sachet).
Hay, as part of the diet, may delay the absorption of suxibuzone and so the onset of clinical effect. It is advisable not to feed hay immediately prior to, or with DANILON equidos.
If no clinical response is evident after 4-5 days, discontinue treatment and reconsider the diagnosis.
Suxibuzone is a prodrug for phenylbutazone in horses and is rapidly converted to phenylbutazone and oxyphenbutazone after absorption.
Non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) (e.g. phenylbutazone, flunixin meglumine or suxibuzone) are appropriate to use in acutely painful cases, and to assist a controlled return to work. This is particularly important in chronic sacroiliac disease, where fitness and improved muscle bulk are vital to recovery. Buy Danilon Equidos 1.5g Granules
