Horse Down - Bute Issue?
I hope I am posting correctly and within the rules. My horse ran out of Bute yesterday. I had had been told it is counterproductive so I was going to take him off it. Without it, he seemed very ouchy yesterday and earlier today. I ran to the vet's and got some as an emergency. He's been more than 24 hours without it when I gave him 2 scoops at 9pm. He is currently laying down and has been for many hours. He seems too worn out to get up or maybe too sore. I am not sure what to do. He cannot reach his water. I handfed him some of his beet pulp and hay. Do I let him just rest or try to make him get up (hate doing that but can). He is a bit gassy too.
