    Hey, about how often can Banamine be given?

    I gave my girl a half of a 1/2 mL (she's an ND), so just enough to take the edge off and make her comfy. She's back to being a bit ouchy today and I don't want to do too much of the stuff on her.

    Banamine is 1cc per 100lbs every 12 hours. It should not be given more than 2 days in a row except in rare cases as it can cause stomach issues and liver issues.

    Okiedokie, thank you so much for the quick reply! :D Couldn't remember if it was 12, 24, or 36 hours apart for giving it, LOL.

    My vet recommends once every 24 hours and no more than 3 days in a row.

    Good to know! Thank you everyone :) I'm not giving her a full dose, just half of one to take the edge off and that seems to be all she needs. Tonight would be her last night to get it before needing a break, but I'll wait and see if it looks like she actually needs it.
