    Angry Reserpine dosage?

    Vet gave me .25 mg pills and said give 7 per day for a 1300 lb horse on stall rest. Vet is notoriously conservative and my bet is this is not going to cut it. I need her tranq'd enough to be kept inside alone during the day. Just started pills yesterday.

    What dosage has worked for you?

    Oh my god - she's gone and got the eventing bug! I will send you some antibiotics! Take the entire bottle and do two hunter shows and it will pass!

    Didn't mean to put the angry face in the title :-)

    I would give him the 7 tabs as prescribed. If the response is not suitable, you can talk about increasing it.
    Some riders change their horse, they change their saddle, they change their teacher; they never change themselves.
