The recommended dose of flunixin is 0.5 mg per lb of body weight once daily. The BANAMINE® Paste syringe, calibrated in twelve 250-lb weight increments, delivers 125 mg of flunixin for each 250 lbs (see dosage table). One syringe will treat a 1000-lb horse once daily for 3 days, or three 1000-lb horses one time.
