You really need to work with your own vet directly on questions like this.  Dormosedan is contraindicated in horses with respiratory disease or any evidence of heart block (which only your vet would know) and you have to consider interactions with other drugs he is on.  It has a fairly short duration of action and causes a rise in blood sugar with compensatory insulin surge after the drug wears off.
