Packaging Needs Improvement
I have been buying "bute" for my horse for more than five years now - the "12 gram" tube, and this new 20 gram tube is harder to handle, with small hands, the dosing marks are hard to read being smaller, and confusing. I am a RN, and with two numbering systems on the tube, I could see people getting confused and overdosing their horse, plus the marks are so close together, there is more waste (accidently using more product), that the value is going down, and the price went up. Sorry about this review, but the old "12 gram" tube was better, and I am also going to call, and speak to customer service.

I had my vet write me a Rx for this paste bute because it was so much cheaper than buying it directly from the vet! I do wish it had an added apple flavor.

sorry there is no apple flavor
I always use the paste because it insures the horse eats all the dose. However, can you tell me why the manufacturer discontinued the apple flavor. My horse takes his dose when needed; however, he prefers the apple flavor.
I know the powders come flavored, why not the paste????

Great for picky eaters
Powder or pill form is definately a much better value. But well worth it if you have a picky horse and beats trying to sneak it into treats or sweet feed and having it end up all over the barn floor and wondering if your horse got any of it.

Easy to aminister
This is the easiest and fastest to administer if you have a picky eater. Worried about your horse not swallowing the paste? Have a friend stand at your horse's shoulder and give him a firm slap behind the withers to activate his swallowing reflex...a trick I learned when my horse was evaluated for neuro probs at a university.

Have used with my 29 year old mare who has a mild colic a couple of times a year. The Phenylbutazone Paste is easy to administer, takes about 45 minutes to take effect.
