Pala-Tech Equine Thyroid Supplement is for use in horses for
correction of conditions associated with low circulating thyroid hormone
- Highly palatable sweet apple and molasses flavor
- Granule dosage form to sprinkle on or mix with grain
- Formulation slightly tacky so granules adhere to horse feed without having to add water or other liquid
- Includes 5.5 gram precision dosing scoop for accurate dosing
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. Each level scoop delivers approximately 12 mg of T4 and less than 1 gram of sugar per scoop. The precision scoop makes it simple to individualize and adjust the dosage for each horse.
Composition: Each pound (454 grams)
contains levothyroxine sodium, USP 0.22% (1.0 g). One level scoop (approx. 5.5 grams) delivers approximately
12 mg of T4 (Levothyroxine Sodium, USP).
Pala-Tech Equine Thyroid Supplement is formulated with a
proprietary, highly palatable molasses and apple flavor base to enhance
acceptance by the horse.
Precaution: 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.
