What is the dose you all use most commonly for dex PO once/day for sweet itch or other pruritic skin condition? I am seeing 0.05-0.1mg/kg/day which for a 1300-1400 lb horse is about 30mg. Does this sound right to you med gurus?
I started my mare at 7 cc a day for a week, then 5cc a day for a week. I backed her off to 5 cc every other day, per vet's request, but she was soooo scratchy on the days she didn't get it that I put her back on at 5cc a day. She had scratched herself bloody raw in spots. She is about 1,000 lbs.
