Yunnan Baiyao Dosage for Horses
Yunnan Baiyao should be used only after consultation and in cooperation with your horse’s veterinarian.
How much to give? These are general guidelines:
- On the day before the race, give the horse one bottle of powder in the morning and one in the evening, but save the red pills for later
- Give the horse a third bottle of powder on the morning of race day, again, save the red/emergency pill.
- Give the horse a fourth and final dose just before the race starts, and then also give him all four red pills
For severe external wounds the powder can also be rubbed on the area in a paste form and then bandaged tightly to stop the blood and start healing the wound.
Do not give Yunnan Baiyao on an ongoing basis. It is best to give it on alternating days, or for a 5-day on, 5-day off cycle that repeats. There is some possible evidence that this medicine may elevate liver markers if given daily for prolonged periods of time.
