So this brings up an interesting question…those of you that use Pentosan regularly, how do you dose it.
6ml 1x a week for 4 weeks, then 1x a month?
6ml every 4 days for 7 injections, then 1x a month?
6ml every 4 days for 7 injections, then as needed?
6ml every day for 7 days and then as needed?
I have tried it a few ways…2,3, and 4 to be exact…I’m on #4 now (just finished dosing a week ago). This was the new way my vet wanted me to do the injection. He felt like it was similar to an IA injection in that you got LOTS of the medication into the system to calm down the inflammation.
Style #3 lasted for 3 1/2 to 4 months…although this was during our less stressful time of riding, so I’m not sure if it is a very good experiment.:winkgrin:
If Style #4 lasts longer…it will be more cost effective in the long run. If the product doesn’t last very long in larger bottles, then I think Style #3 is more cost effective than #2.
Just me over here counting my pennies![/QUOTE]
I would be a little concerned over Pentosan injections every day for 7 days. Is that too much of a good thing? Curious where your vet came up with that protocol and if it’s been tried before.
