Dosage and Administration :

The recommended dose of Hyvisc (hyaluronate sodium) Injection is 2 mL (22 mg) given to horses intra-articularly in small and medium-sized joints (carpal, fetlock). In larger joints (hock), the dosage is 4 mL (44 mg). Treatment may be repeated at weekly intervals for a total of three treatments. As with any intra-articular injection, aseptic technique is used. The following are suggested use directions regardless of the type of joint to be treated.

1. Carefully diagnose each case using routine methods. The origin of lameness should be pinpointed to be within a specific joint or joints (e.g., lameness is localized to a specific joint using intra-articular anesthesia). Radiographs or other diagnostic aids should not reveal recent fractures or other serious abnormalities which would suggest a poor prognosis.

2. Aseptically remove as much synovial fluid from the afflicted joint as can be easily withdrawn.

3. Remove tip cap from the Hyvisc syringe and inject through a sterile needle, 20 gauge or larger.

4. Inject a single 2 mL dose (one syringe) of Hyvisc into each joint to be treated; if the joint being treated is the hock joint, inject 4 mL (two syringes). Since Hyvisc is a viscous fluid, care should be exercised on injection so as not to dislodge the needle from the syringe.

5. Two or four days of rest or light exercise is recommended before resumption of normal activity. Improvement of joint function should be seen within one to two weeks after Hyvisc Injection.
