What are the side effects of Bute Phenylbutazone 1 gram - 100 Tablets? Stop medication at the first sign of gastrointestinal upset, jaundice, or blood dyscrasia. Authenticated cases of agranulocytosis associated with the drug have occurred in man; fatal reactions, although rare, have been reported in dogs after long-term therapy. To guard against this possibility, conduct routine blood counts at weekly intervals during the early phase of therapy and at intervals of two weeks thereafter. Any significant fall in the total white count, relative decrease in granulocytes, or black or tarry stools, should be regarded as a signal for immediate cessation of therapy and institution of appropriate countermeasures.
What special precautions are there? Phenylbutazone should not be administered to animals with serious heptic, renal or cardiac pathology, or those with a history of blood dyscrasia.
What to do if overdose? Contact your nearest emergency animal clinic.

DOSAGE AND ROUTE OF ADMINISTRATION
Phenylbutazone may be given orally or by the intravenous route. Oral preparations available include tablets (to be crushed and mixed with feed or given with a balling gun), paste, and gel forms.
The maximum manufacturer's recommended intravenous dose is 1-2 grams/1000 Ib daily. The upper dose limit is recommended for initial injection to achieve rapid control of the inflammatory process. This should then be decreased.
The maximum manufacturer's recommended oral dose is 2-4 grams/1000 Ib daily. Because blood levels drop rapidly, it is suggested that the total daily dose be divided and the drug be administered every 8 hours for best effect. Many veterinarians and owners get satisfactory results giving phenylbutazone only once or twice a day.
