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. 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.
For oral dosing as directed by a veterinarian. Warning: Use with caution in 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.
