Re: Managing tie-ups

We did some research at Cal Poly on DMG's effect on lactate
clearance---we couldn't maintain a sound sample population (translation,
our old horses kept going lame) so we couldn't publish an abstract that
proved anything, but in a few horses we did see improved recovery
(faster lactate clearance) when we dosed at 4 mg per kg of body weight,
which is about 1600 mgs for a 900 pound horse.  No improvements at
dosages lower than that.  Just a tidbit to throw into the pot.

Since the DMG molecule is small and quickly metabolized, our feeling was
that there isn't any residual effect---you won't get improvement
tomorrow by taking it today---so your best results will probably come
from taking it and hour or so before your workout, and then every few
hours throughout the workout.  No risks of overdose to worry about.
