Lutalyse Question

I'm breeding with lutalyse for the first time this month and have a couple questions. I realize that there is a lower dose method of lutalyse commonly given (I believe it's 2 shots of .2cc). The dose recommended to me by my vet was 2 cc (preceded by 10 cc of banamine). The vet didn't mention a certain time that the lutalyse should be given, only that it should be 3 days before breeding. The stallion owner said that there is a specific point in the mare's cycle when the lutalyse should be given. Which of these is correct? The shot was given 8/30 in the evening during an unknown point in her cycle, how will that affect her cycle? What is the appropriate means of bringing her into heat ASAP?

Thank you all for the advice, lutalyse is new to me and there's so much information on all sorts of topics when I google it.

Lutalyse needs to be given to your mare during her cycle when a corpus luteum is present since lutalyse is a prostaglandin that will break down the CL, essentially causing your mare to come back into heat. In order for it to be effective, there must be a fully formed CL which in most horses, typically occurs five days post ovulation. Therefore the earliest you should give Lutalyse is 5 days post ovulation.
