Description

Danilon is an anti-inflammatory for treatment of pain and inflammation associated with musculo-skeletal conditions in the horse.

The current product Danilon® Equidos has been changed to Danilon® Equidos Gold. This is a complete switch; the product Danilon Equidos has been discontinued, and the new product has replaced it.

This new product, Danilon Equidos Gold 1.5 g Granules for Horses and Ponies is a more concentrated formulation than the current (original) product (Danilon Equidos). The quantity of active substance per sachet remains the same (1.5 g suxibuzone) as the existing marketing authorisation but is presented in 3 g sachets compared to 10 g sachets. The new 500 mg/g strength in 3 g sachets is equivalent to the existing 150 mg/g product formulation in 10 g sachets.

This means there is no change in dose, one 3g sachet will provide exactly the same dose of medication as one 10g sachet.

How to Administer

 

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 frequency 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 sachet on alternate days. Thereafter, reduce to the minimum dose frequency necessary for a satisfactory clinical response. 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 the veterinary medicinal product.

See also; Special precautions for use. If no clinical response is evident after 4-5 days, discontinue treatment and reconsider the diagnosis.
Part sachets should not be used.

Often used for laminitis and osteoarthritis in horses and ponies.
