I only give 2.5 mL. I do it iv 3-4 hrs out. IM you will increase that time. I pull hay and water when I give the Lasix and have water ready when I run so he can drink immediately after. I give electrolytes that day and depending on weather, number of runs etc, I do it days before and after.

Starting my EIPH horse on Lasix. How much Lasix (IM) do you give and how far in advance of a race? Also when and what do you give to help support horse? Thank you!!!
It's going to be different for each horse, so you will have to play around with it to see what works best. I give anywhere from 3-6 cc's 4 hours out depending on weather and size of the pattern. If it was humid and a standard pattern I give 6. If it's cold and a small pattern I would give 3. You will want to give electrolytes 1 hour after giving Lasix to replenish the potassium they are losing with Lasix. I pulled water but not feed, I know some that pull both or don't pull either, so you will need to find what works best.
