Thyroxine L Powder Indications

For use in horses and ponies for correction of conditions associated with low circulating thyroid hormone (hypothyroidism).

ADMINISTRATION: Thyroxine L Powder may be top dressed or mixed with the daily ration.

Composition

Each pound (453.6 g) contains:

Levothyroxine Sodium, USP

0.22% (1.0 g)

One level teaspoonful contains 12 mg of T4; one level tablespoonful contains 36 mg of T4.

DOSAGE: Doses should be individualized and animals should be monitored daily for clinical signs of hyperthyroidism or hypersensitivity. Suggested initial doses are 1 - 10 mg levothyroxine sodium (T4)/100 lb. body weight (2 - 20 mg/100 kg) once per day or in divided doses. Response to the administration of Thyroxine L Powder should be evaluated clinically every week until an adequate maintenance dose is established. In most horses, this is usually in the range of 35 to 100 mg total daily dose of T4 (1 - 3 level tablespoonfuls Thyroxine L Powder).

Warning

Administer with caution to animals with clinically significant heart disease, hypertension or other complications for which a sharply increased metabolic rate might prove hazardous. Use in pregnant mares has not been evaluated.
