My horse gets stiff. My trainer recommended bute after my lessons, but I know it can have negative side effects. Can I use Herbal Bute after lessons with a similar effects as bute?

Turmeric is great for our horse who is arthritic and gets sore after work sometimes! He also has a magnetic rug and bands on his legs
Hi Alex,

Some herbal products contain naturally anti-inflammatory substances. Their anti-inflammatory action is less powerful but the side effects much less way missing, so this is a good alternative to Bute in the case of your horse which seems to require receiving anti-inflammatory regularly.

In any case, it is important that your horse be seen by a veterinarian to determine the cause of this stiffness and to treat it if possible.
