Danilon Equidos comes in sachets of yellow, odourless granules to add to the food of horses. It has to be prescribed by your vet and is used to treat pain and inflammation associated with osteoarthritis, degenerative joint disease, musculo-skeletal injuries and conditions such as bursitis and laminitis. One sachet is an adequate starting application for a 240kg pony. A horse weighing 480kg needs two sachets on the first day. On the following three days a half application is all that is required, and then afterwards this application can be given daily or on alternate days, depending on the response. A scoop is provided within the carton to enable half sachets to be measured out for more accurate applications of different sized equines.
Danilon Equidos should not be given to any equine which might go for human consumption in future. It is also a prohibited substance under international equine competition rules. Treatment with Danilon should be stopped for a suitable time before competing to allow the drug to clear.
