Product description

Equidone Gel is an oral medication for mares.

Active ingredients

Each disposable 25cc Equidone Gel multi-dose syringe contains:

  • 2.75 g (110 mg/cc) of domperidone

Indications for use

Equidone Gel is indicated for prevention of fescue toxicosis in periparturient mares.

Administration and dosage

  • Equidone Gel is to be administered at a dosage of 0.5mglb (1.1mg/kg) once daily starting 10 to 15 days before Expected Foaling Date (EFD). This treatment may be continued for up to 5 days, after foaling, if mares are not producing adequate milk following foaling.

  • Determine the appropriate dose for the bodyweight of the mare based on the dosing table below. One cc will treat 220 lb (100 kg) of body weight:

    • Dosing:

    • 550-660 Weight (lb): 3 cc - 330 mg of Domperidone

    • 661-880 Weight (lb): 4 cc - 440 mg of Domperidone

    • 881-1100 Weight (lb): 5 cc - 550 mg of Domperidone

    • 1101-1320 Weight (lb): 6 cc - 660 mg of Domperidone

  • Turn the dial ring until the edge of the ring nearest the tip of the syringe lines up with the dose to be delivered.

  • Remove the syringe cap.

  • Make sure the horse’s mouth is free of food or other obstructions.

  • Insert the nozzle of the syringe through the interdental space of the horse’s mouth and deposit the gel on the back of the tongue by depressing the plunger.

  • Recap the syringe. This is a 25 cc multi-dose syringe. Please note that for subsequent doses, it will be necessary to adjust for previous doses. For example, if the intended dose for a horse is 5 cc, then the dial ring is set at 5 cc for the first dose, at 10 cc for the second dose, at 15 cc for the third dose, at 20 cc for the fourth dose, and at 25 cc for the fifth dose.
