starting adewuan


LJ Friedman
 

i’m going to start majestic on adequan    , the loading dose is five ML, every four days,  for seven times.
my question:
I have a trainer that rides majestic every Monday and every Thursday and she offers to give him the injection on those days. Would that be OK as far as being close enough to the protocol of every four days for seven times?

That's probably OK. Give it as early as possible on Monday and late as possible on Thursday.

I will add wrt Adequan that doing the loading dose every X months gets far better results in my experience than doing the loading dose and then one injection per month. That used to be what a lot of people did but my vet at the time said it was off label and she recommended finding the “sweet spot” in terms of how many months I could wait before doing what is called the “loading dose” again. For my older horse at that time I did it every third month, and for my younger horse every 4th month. It worked much better for both of them than a monthly injection.

Best,
Billie

thank you for both replies. I have rearranged schedules where majestic will be injected every four days exactly. And I will repeat this cycle in approximately three months time.  thanks
