Equine Thyroid Supplement Indications
For use in horses for correction of conditions associated with low circulating thyroid hormone (hypothyroidism).
Dosage: The suggested initial dosage is 0.5 to 3.0 mg levothyroxine sodium (T-4) per 100 pounds of body weight (1 to 6 mg per 100 kg) once per day or in divided doses. Response to the administration of Pala-Tech™ Equine Thyroid Supplement (Levothyroxine Sodium, USP) should be evaluated clinically until an adequate maintenance dose is established. In most horses, this is usually in the range of 6 to 36 mg total daily dose of T-4. Serum T-3 and T-4 values can vary greatly among individual horses on thyroid supplementation. Dosages should be individualized and animals should be monitored daily for clinical signs of hyperthyroidism or hypersensitivity.
Administration: A 5.5 gram scoop is enclosed in the container. Measure out the prescribed dose and administer by mixing the daily dose in the concentrate or by top dressing on grain, preferably rolled or ground.
