Equine Thyroid Supplement


Pala-Tech Equine Thyroid Supplement is for use in horses for correction of conditions associated with low circulating thyroid hormone (hypothyroidism).

  • 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.
