Product Details

Danilon Equidos Granules for horses is a Non-Steroidal Anti-Inflammatory Drug that is often used to treat equine musculo-skeletal problems such as laminitis, osteoarthritic conditions, bursitis and soft tissue inflammation. Each sachet contains 1.5g of microencapsulated Suxibuzone, which has pain relieving properties as well as antipyretic and anti-inflammatory properties. It can be administered by mixing the correct amount of powder (measuring scoop provided in each box) into a small amount of feed.

Suxibuzone is a prohibited substance under international equine competition rules therefore treatment should be stopped a suitable amount of time before the horse is due to compete (please refer to RCVS guidelines for elimination time). If signs of intolerance appear, discontinue administration and consult your vet.
Wear suitable gloves when handling Danilon and take care to avoid dust inhalation when opening the sachet or administering the medication into the feed.

Instructions
For oral administration.
When added to a portion of feed the product will be accepted by most horses.
The following should be used as a guide, according to individual response:
Horses:
For a 480 kg bodyweight horse, the contents of 2 sachets should be administered twice daily (equivalent to 12.5 mg of suxibuzone/kg/day) for 2 days, followed by 1 sachet twice daily (6.25 mg of suxibuzone/kg/day) for 3 days.
Thereafter, 1 sachet daily (3.1 mg of suxibuzone/kg/day) or on alternate days, or the minimum dose necessary for a satisfactory clinical response.

Ponies:
Ponies should receive only half the dose rate recommended for horses.
For a 240 kg bodyweight pony, the contents of 1 sachet should be administered daily (equivalent to 6.25 mg of suxibuzone/kg/day) for 2 days, followed by 1/2 sachet daily (3.1 mg of suxibuzone/kg/day) for 3 days or 1 sachet on alternate days.
Thereafter, reduce the dose to the minimum dose necessary for a satisfactory clinical response.
For administration of less than one sachet, use the measuring scoop provided. One full level scoop contains 5 g granules (equivalent to 1/2 sachet) and up to the green line level contains 2,5 g granules (equivalent to 1/4 sachet).
Hay, as part of the diet, may delay the absorption of suxibuzone and so the onset of clinical effect. It is advisable not to feed hay immediately prior to, or with DANILON equidos.
See also special precautions for use.
If no clinical response is evident after 4-5 days, discontinue treatment and reconsider the diagnosis.

Overdose (symptoms, emergency procedures, antidotes):
In case of accidental continuous overdose, the following symptoms may be observed:
Thirst, depression, anorexia and weight loss
Gastrointestinal disorders (irritation, ulcers, diarrhoea and blood in the faeces)
Altered blood profiles and haemorrhages
Hypoproteinemia with ventral oedema causing hemoconcentration, hypovolemic shock and circulatory collapse.
Renal failure and fluid retention.
If signs of intolerance appear, discontinue treatment and establish symptomatic therapy.
A slow intravenous perfusion of a solution of sodium bicarbonate, which leads to urine alkalinisation, increases the clearance of the product.
