Conditions of use:
Amount: It is administered by deep intramuscular injection at a dosage level of 5 milligrams every other day for 2 weeks and twice weekly for 2 to 3 more weeks. Severe cases, both acute and chronic, may benefit more from daily therapy initially. Dosage may be continued beyond 5 weeks if satisfactory improvement has not been achieved.
Indications: It is used in the treatment of soft tissue inflammation associated with the musculoskeletal system.
Limitations: Not for use in horses intended for food.
Amount: It is administered by subcutaneous injection at a dosage level of 5 milligrams every day for 6 days, and thereafter, every other day for 8 days. In less severe conditions shorter courses of therapy may be indicated.
Indications; It is used for the relief of inflammation associated with ankylosing spondylitis, spondylosis, and disc disease. When severe nerve damage is present, response will occur much more slowly, if at all.
Limitations: Federal law restricts this drug to use by or on the order of a licensed veterinarian.
