View Full Version : PentAussie longer duration loading dose?

Dec. 6, 2013, 09:59 AM
Accidentally posted this question in the pentosan side effects topic. Sorry! thought I created a new topic! so here it is!

and YES, I already have a call into the vet for his opinion ( he just got back yesterday from vacation, so I might not have a answer until the after the weekend)

My Question: Has anyone Given PentAussie to their horse every 5-7 days for 8 vials instead of 4? (ex: 1 vial every week for 8wks)?

My horse has pretty severe arthritis in his knee.

I was thinking of giving him a longer/double duration loading dose (1 vials every wk for 8 wks)?

Thank You for any responses

I use Pentosan not Pentaussie but my horse gets a shot every week.

I only did the 4-dose loading dose and then 1 shot every month since. It's hard to say how well it works as my horse has so many issues, we throw everything and the kitchen sink at him treatment wise.
