Re: Best painkiller for stiffness/trimming

Short term, targeted use of bute/banamine is perfectly fine unless the horse is extremely sensitive to it for some reason. Equioxx is a lot more expensive and is easily overdosed, unless you use the paste. It also doesn't clear the bloodstream for over 24 hours.

If the bute works to help her thru the trim session, there is no reason not to use it.
