    Absorbine® Bute-Less™ Pellets is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 286.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works great Have used this for quite a time and it continues to be a main stay in my horses life.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Consistant Results We have purchased these Bute-Less pellets for two of our older therapy horses over the years. It has given then them extra comfort to continue light work and help their bodies keep up with their still younger minds. Both have always readily ate this pellet.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Seeing improvement Tried a one month supply for my 25 year old mare who was not lying down to rest as much as she used to (should be). After one month's use it seemed like we were seeing a positive change. Now she is on it every day to help her feel more limber.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Seems to Work! My horse has been on this supplement for a couple months now, and I have noticed a difference! He has arthritis and usually took quite a while to work out of it. Now he comes out of the stall less stiff, working out of it quicker, and VOLUNTARILY working through his back! This is a HUGE accomplishment! Especially good for horses prone to ulcers as well. Much more gentle on the stomach. Highly recommend!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Better than STP Like this most of the all pain relief I don’t compete this horse at the moment so no big deal for me. It does work way better then the performance version. I see zero results on the performance one!
    Date published: 2019-12-03
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works well for my horses I keep this on hand for when teh aches and pains of my horses come in with are easily taken care of. It has been a staple in my barn for many years. i have not had a horse turn their nose up at it yet.
    Date published: 2019-09-24
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works This just simply works for my 24 y/o appendix. He’s big, and prone to joint pains, as well as the random bang your toe on a stump pains. This is a daily supp for him, and it simply works. I totally recommend. A little expensive, like everything.... but my picky eater doesn’t hesitate to mow down on it
    Date published: 2019-08-31
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product I bought this for my guy who has navicular hoping it would make him a little more comfortable. It has far surpassed that. He’s like a new horse. I’m very happy with this!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Jake seems to be doing good on bute less and doesn't seem to be stiff
    Date published: 2019-08-13
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Incredible Results My severely navicular mare HATES bute.. I thought it would be hard to find a natural alternative - but when I saw this, I got so excited and had to try it. She has been on it for almost 6 months now and I couldn't imagine her off of it. Sometimes she has off days, but thats just her and they are nowhere near as bad as before. After I went through my first bucket I didn't have autoship on at the time, so she was off of it for a week or 2.. I IMMEDIATELY noticed a difference when she wasn't on it. I swear by this, I also love that its natural.. We give them so much man made stuff, it makes me feel so good to be able to give her something natural and easy on her stomach!!
