Amazing product keeps my horses feeling great and not sore!
Dawn L on Oct 3, 2018
I have two 26 year old ponies. one with a sticky stifle that is made significantly better with bute-less (he went without bute-less for a week and his stifle completely locked up) And another with a bone cyst that causes her some pain. While on bute-less she's a sassy pain-free pony, I don't expect bute-less to continue to keep her pain free forever if the cyst progresses but it has allowed me to reduce my use of previcox and other expensive pain relievers to keep her comfortable.
Teresa H on Sep 19, 2018
Incredible product to help with joints.

Simply Works!
Julie M on Oct 23, 2015
I've used this product for many years. I first purchased it because Horse Journal had tested it and recommended it, since I needed to give it long-term and was concerned about the ulcer problem with giving Phenylbutazone for extended periods. I've found it to be palatable and effective.
Kat W on Oct 5, 2015

Have a old barrel racing pony and she needs a little pain control to keep her comfortable. Inexpensive, natural, and palatable added to regular rations.
Marie C on Sep 2, 2015
My horse needs daily pain/inflammation relief for lameness and I don't want to burn up his stomach with bute. This seems to work for him.
Patricia H on Aug 10, 2015
don't have any bute
maile b on Aug 7, 2015
I have a horse that has a muscle disease, and because of this has injured his leg forever. Bless his heart he is a trooper, his pain comes and goes and so does swelling. Bute was only thing that even helped at times. Have discovered bute-less works great. His swelling when he has it is very little. And his pain level is way down sometimes to nothing. I totally believe in bute-less. Only thing on market I have found that helps him. He deserves the best.
Debbie M on Jul 27, 2015
Have been using this for years for my older horse (31 yrs old) and it works. Transitioning to pellets instead of the liquid because of cost.
Linda T on Jun 14, 2015

Does this help with inflammation?
A shopper on Sep 30, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Yes, it is a daily bute alternative. My horses with arthritis have been helped by it tremendously, my favorite part is no ulcer worries and all natural ingredients
Can a horse take ButeLess if they are on Equioxx?
Ginger L on Jun 23, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Hi Ginger, I had the same question for my own horse. No he cannot. Equioxx is a NSAID and according to the manufacturers label on Buteless it is not to be used in conjunction with NDAIDS. So you will need to decide which is more effective or like I did later, found joint supplements without the herbal ingredients.
Is this something that can be in the system of a horse that competes?
A shopper on Mar 14, 2018
BEST ANSWER: This is certainly a question for your veterinarian, not for other horse owners. Since this is a pain relief product, surely you should be careful not to double up with other such products. Beyond that you should check with your vet and be sure to tell him/her everything the horse is already getting even if it is not prescription.

Absorbine Bute-Less Pellets
Absorbine Bute-Less Pellets
Absorbine Bute-Less Performance Supplement
Absorbine Bute-Less Performance Supplement
BEST ANSWER: I'm sorry but I've never used Recovery. I gave Bute-less to my 32 year old gelding for two years til he passed naturally. He was medicated for Cushings and I didn't want to compound his condition with gastric discomfort.
Can a miniature horse take this?
A shopper on Feb 5, 2017
BEST ANSWER: I give it to my ancient donkey, but she is not a mini donkey. It really helps her get around with no ill effects in over a year and a half. If you think you want to try it, you would just need to dose according to weight.
How many scoops for a 1500 lb. draft horse?
Carrie on Jan 16, 2017
BEST ANSWER: We give this to a draft a bit bigger than that. He gets one scoop twice a day. It does seem to make him more comfortable since when we stopped once, he appeared to hurt more. Give it a try.
I only want to use a pain reliever when I need to shoe my horse...how long does it take before in works ?
louise m on Jun 27, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Unfortunately the answer is "it depends." It depends on your horse's level of discomfort. It depends on if this product works for him (same way some humans have to take ibuprofen because aspirin isn't effective for them). It depends on how far in advance and/or how often you give it. Finally, this product is designed for daily use, so you may not find it as effective if only administered occasionally.
Shipping charges?
A shopper on Mar 25, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Standard Economy shipping starts at $6.99
Could this help with mares estrus cycle? she has pain day 2 days before follicle is released . I give her bute when she is really uncomfortable.
Cathy C on Feb 18, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I know it helped my old mare with arthritis pain. I'm not sure about your mare's estrus cycle. Th Yucca and Devil's claw were supplements I was giving my mare already for her arthritis. Since she was on it long term for arthritis, I liked using Bute-less because of the possible side affects of Bute over a long term - liver failure, etc...
i have an 18 yr old paint geilding with Navicular syndrome in both front legs hes having corrective shoeing and padding under his hooves would this possibly help him get rid of his limp?
A shopper on Dec 21, 2015
BEST ANSWER: I used this for my 26 year-old Tennessee Walker who had severe arthritis. It definitely helped with the pain associated with the arthritis and having Yucca and Devil's Claw that helps lubricate the joints. It could definitely help with your gelding's Navicular. It is worth trying because it is safer on their system than using Bute on a long-term basis.

does it help with founder?
Debra D on Apr 29, 2015
BEST ANSWER: My horse has arthritis and it helps with the pain. It won't help with the symptoms, just a pain reliever like aspirin. It works well with Bute, also. Bute can have long-term adverse affects, so this is safer.
