hyroVet Powder For Horses is for use in horses for correction of conditions associated with low circulating thyroid hormone (hypothyroidism). ThyroVet (Levothyroxine sodium) serves as a substitute for thyroid hormone. This powder medication is easily administered in horse's daily grain ration. Levothyroxine acts similar to the hormone thyroxine that's produced naturally by the thyroid gland. Thyroxine regulates many body processes. Hypothyroidism is the condition in which the body is not producing enough Thryoxine. ThyroVet levothyroxine replacement acts to maintain normal body metabolism.
The suggested initial dose is 0.5 to 3.0 mg levothyroxine sodium (T-4) per 100 lbs of body weight (1 to 6 mg per 100 kg) once per day or in divided doses. Response to the administration of ThyroVet™ Powder should be evaluated clinically until an adequate maintenance dose is established. In most horses, the total daily dose of T-4 is in the range of 6 to 36 mg. 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.
