LEXINGTON, Ky., Aug. 29, 2016 — Neogen is proud to introduce the newly reformulated ThyroKare Equine Powder. Now available in both one-pound and 10-pound offerings, ThyroKare Equine Powder is a levothyroxine sodium supplement for horses.

“When I first introduced the new formulation to horses during onfarm testing, I was amazed how quickly it was consumed,” said Neogen’s Professional Services Veterinarian Dr. Joe Lyman. “They even licked the powder off the bucket.”

Each teaspoon contains 12 mg of levothyroxine sodium in a very palatable limestone base with vanilla flavoring. ThyroKare Equine Powder is easy to use and administer as a top dressing on grain or sweet feed.

ThyroKare Equine Powder complements the Neogen®Vet line of equine supplements and products. Other products include Tri-Hist® Granules, Spec-tuss™ and BotVax® B, the only USDA-approved vaccine for the prevention of equine botulism type B.

Neogen Corporation (NASDAQ: NEOG) develops and markets products dedicated to food and animal safety. Neogen’s Animal Safety Division markets a complete line of diagnostics, veterinary instruments, veterinary pharmaceuticals, nutritional supplements, disinfectants, and rodenticides.
