To obtain an individual response, the lowest effective dosage should be used. For precise dosage, tablets are scored. To the closest half-tablet increment, calculate your horse's dose. This drug should not be crushed. Crushed tablets should not be consumed by humans. Orally, at a starting dose of 2g per kg of body weight, one time per day. Adjust until you get the desired result, but don't go beyond 4g per kilogram per day. Reduce the dose by half for three to five days if the horse appears to be developing an intolerance, then gradually increase at a rate of 2mcg per kg of body weight every two weeks until the desired effect is achieved.
