BANAMINE Paste is recommended for the alleviation of inflammation and pain associated with musculoskeletal disorders in the horse.
The recommended dose of flunixin is 0.5 mg per lb of body weight once daily. The BANAMINE Paste syringe, calibrated in twelve 250-lb weight increments, delivers 125 mg of flunixin for each 250 lbs (see dosage table). One syringe will treat a 1000-lb horse once daily for 3 days, or three 1000-lb horses one time.
The paste is orally administered by inserting the nozzle of the syringe through the interdental space, and depositing the required amount of paste on the back of the tongue by depressing the plunger.
Treatment may be given initially by intravenous injection of BANAMINE Solution, followed by BANAMINE Paste on days 2 to 5. BANAMINE treatment should not exceed 5 consecutive days.
