0.22% levothyroxine sodium powder, USP
The suggested initial dose is 0.5 to 3.0 mg levothyroxine sodium (T-4) per 100 pounds body weight (1 to 6 mg per 100 kg) once per day or in divided doses. The recommended daily dose is 1/2 to 2 1/2 level teaspoons for a 500 kg (1,100 lb) horse.
Response to the administration of Thyro-L 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 (1/2 to 3 level teaspoons) 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.
Thyro-L can be administered by mixing the daily dose in the concentrate or by top dressing on grain, preferably rolled or ground. To facilitate proper adhesion of Thyro-L to the ration, slightly moisten the grain with water or liquid supplement.
