Bute-Less Equine Supplement

Sensing discomfort in a friend is something we do almost unconsciously. We can tell just by looking at them, or from the tone of their voice. A human friend will confirm it when asked, but detecting discomfort in your horse can be much more difficult. Many times there are subtle signals, like refusing normal commands, vigorous tail swishing, trouble with lead changes, or a grumpy attitude. A dash of intuition and careful observation will usually tip us off when there is a problem. Some more obvious signs of a horse’s discomfort can include unusual bucking, biting, rearing, holding a tight or “hollow” back, shaking of the head and similar actions.

While some obvious causes of soreness like a pulled tendon or a laceration have straight-forward treatments, many horses will live with discomfort for the rest of their lives. Even once we’ve detected it and the cause is diagnosed, our vet may not have many options to keep our horses comfortable indefinitely. Many of the medicines commonly prescribed today have serious side effects, like gastric irritation and resulting ulcers, so horse owners shy away from using them in the long-term.

Bute-Less Comfort and Recovery Supplement

As horses live longer lives thanks to better nutrition and veterinary medicine, many of us are faced with the challenges of caring for senior horses, as we strive to keep them comfortable in their golden years. Absorbine® Bute-Less can offer your horse support for a healthy inflammatory response, and eases discomfort associated with exercise and aging. It is gentle on the stomach and is easily administered as a daily supplement. Active ingredients in Bute-Less include natural Devil’s Claw Extract and Yucca Schidigera Extract, as well as Vitamin B-12. Bute-Less is available in three convenient forms, as pellets, paste syringes, and solution. Formerly known as Equine America® B-L®, our supplement is proven to be gentle on the stomach, making it ideal for long-term use. Search the reviews online and you’ll find that it’s highly rated and recommended, with comments like this:


“I finished the 30 days and my 19 year old mare was much springier and more ‘playful’ than I can remember! Even in the heat of the late summer!!! RAVE REVIEWS FROM ME!”

-Andrea H., Florida

    Do I need to wean my horse off previcox for a few days before I start him on Buteless?

    Hello Cassandra, where Bute-Less is an internal supplement, we do not know of any contra-indications for using topical applications. Do not mix Bute-Less with DMSO and apply to topically. Only use Bute-Less with your horse according to the label instructions. Thank you!

    You can use our product alongside any supplement made by Absorbine as we know what is in them. If you want to try it with sdomeone else’s supplement, work with your vet to review the ingredients. Do not use Bute-Less with any other product that contains Devil’s Claw – our Bute-Less has just the right amount of that ingredient and “more” is not helpful. Bute-Less does not contain glucosamine, chondroitin or MSM so works well alongside most traditional joint supplements.

    Hello Jane! We formulated Bute-Less for horses and so do not make recommendation about other animals. However, all of the ingredients are listed on the label and you could consult your veterinarian about using it with your alpaca. If you decided to use it the dosing would likely be the same – by animal’s weight per the label. Thank you for your interest!
