I am trying to decide which pain relief would be best for an 18yr old QH mare with navicular. She is getting noticably more painful. What does everyone else use for a safe daily pain relief. I prefer something feed through that is palatable, She is a very picky eater and hiding bute is a challenge.
Bute is of course the old standby. I haven’t heard of anything that replaces it. I had a 23-year-old ASB trail horse with dropped fetlocks, and bute is what I used for her. Have you tried adding applesauce to your bute? And oat bran to that? Good luck!
