Inflammation reduces thyroid gland hormone output - vet can test T4 - will be in bottom or normal range = suboptimal. We need in top of normal to help muscle/nerves recover. 1000 lb horse - 2 scoops Thyrol = 24mg 1x/day in AM, retest in 30 days to see if getting to high end of normal. Range of T4 at Cornell is 1-3, so EPM horse will be 1.3 for example - we need at 30 day retest near 2.5 - 3.0 in high normal. On for life.
