Making the Transition from Elevate W.S. to Elevate Maintenance Powder.
It may be appropriate for a veterinarian to prescribe long-term vitamin E supplementation to certain patients. While Elevate W.S. can be used over the long term, in some cases it will be advantageous to change the patient over to Elevate Maintenance Powder.
When switching from Elevate W.S liquid to Elevate Maintenance Powder, a transition allows the horse to adapt to the different form of vitamin E. Transitioning over a period of 7 to 10 days is recommended. Over this time period, slowly decrease the amount of Elevate W.S. and replace it with equal IUs of Maintenance Powder.
Here is an example of transitioning from feeding 4,000 IU/day of Elevate W.S. to 4,000 IU/day of Elevate Maintenance Powder.*
Day 1-3: Feed 3,000 IU (6cc) of Elevate W.S. + 1,000 IU (1 scoop) of Elevate Maintenance Powder
Day 4-6: Feed 2,000 IU ( 4 cc) of Elevate W.S. + 2,000 IU (2 scoops) of Elevate Maintenance Powder
Day 7-9: Feed 1,000 IU (2 cc) of Elevate W.S. + 3,000 IU (3 scoops) of Elevate Maintenance Powder
Day 10 and forward: Feed 4,000 IU (4 scoops) Elevate Maintenance Powder
*1 cc (or 1 mL) of Elevate W.S. = 500 IU; 1 scoop Elevate Maintenance Powder = 1,000 IU.
