    Absorbine® Bute-Less™ Pellets is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 280.
    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

    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

    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!!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing Stuff!! I bought this three weeks ago for my 27 year old Draft Horse mare in an act of desperation. We really thought she was running out of time... My mare has been getting progressively more arthritic and uncomfortable on her back legs. She was lying down to rest less and less because getting back up was so difficult for her. Within three weeks, using just one slightly heaped scoop a day, the dose recommended for a 1100 - 1200 pound horse (she is 1800 lbs), she is lying down and getting back up again, no problem. No more grunting and staggering as she gets back to her feet. Yesterday, she voluntarily LOPED into the back pasture for turn out with our other horse. This is HUGE! My mare hasn't voluntarily gone faster than a quick walk in more than 2 years, even when grain is being offered. Her ears are forward, her face looks relaxed and happy, no more grumpy pursed lips...I am so happy for her and highly recommend this product. We still won't be working her, I mean, she IS 27, but wow, just the fact that she can now enjoy her retirement, she is a pleasure to watch.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from My senior horse is responding well to Bute Less I started Bute Less smart pak pellets 5 weeks ago on my 30 year old appy gelding. He has chronic arthritis and I wanted to try and get him off a daily dose of bute. These pellets are giving him more relief than Bute and its much easier on his gut. I would highly recommend this product.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good supplement I have fed this to a couple horses over the years. They eat it right up and do well on it. I feed this along with msm to ease the everyday aches and pains of my aging horse.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome Product My mare is 30+ and her immediate response after starting this product is just impressive. I have decided to have all my senior horses on this.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Was what I was expecting. I have been using this for years. I always have it on hand in case I am planning a long travel time with my horses or they have an injury that will take time to heal. I like that Bute-Less has more natural ingredients and does not cause any stomach upset. The horses eat it alone or in grain.
