Re: [RC] Strangles in SE region - John Teeter

We administered "GentaMax 100" - which Gentamicin Sulfate Solution; at 25ml/dose and 2 doses a day for 5 days; The horse must be quarantined for a longer period of time; but the 5 day dosage using this is much sorter (3x?) than a normal penicillin protocal (but it was, as I recall, $25/shot).

but definitely, we were told and we did do, a full protocol on all of the exposed horses.

What I read said this would just delay symptoms, they'd be protected
until they went off the antibiotics and then get it. If you were *sure*
you got away from the contaminant it would help, but if they would still
be exposed after they got off it would not. Again, taking a temp gave
you a jump on everything. If your horse's temp jumped.. (103 I think was
what they said) you separate that one quickly *before* it starts
spreading it.
