EHD Treatment with Dexamethasone
I've had a few EHD cases. Having good luck with Dexamethasone. I had it compounded to 12mg/ml. I can give a strong 24mg dose in a 2cc dart. In my opinion most people I know using Dexamethasone aren't hitting them hard enough. I discussed dosage with my vet and that's what has been working for us. I can shoot dex once and usually see improvement the next day. Talk to your vet about dosages and compounding. Be sure to give it with an antibiotic. It's been a miracle drug for me. I may give dex for several days if necessary but I'll give a bump of the antibiotics a few days after the initial dose.
