    Bute Less™ Pellets is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 245.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works great for my horse Bought for my older mare with some arthritis and has worked great
    Date published: 2016-12-13
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for Sensitive Tummies and Keeps Em Moving! I use this on my sidebone pasture pony we rescued. On really cold days or days where she's gotten too "frisky" and hurts the next day. She gets it everyday so its always working in her system and her off days are few and far between. Takes awhile to build up in the system--but press on! Its highly palatable for picky eaters. Also use on my 20 year old TB who has the most sensitive stomach in the world. It doesnt bother him and he keeps moving and grooving!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Didn't see much of a difference I used this for a month for my 19 year old senior horse. He gobbled it up without grain but he's not a picky eater. I bought it since he seemed to be having achy joints. He was resting his left hind hock a lot and would limp on it a bit. I didn't see much of a difference in his way of moving but I did see him resting his hoof less. However, he is also on aspirin for uveitis. Maybe it wasn't enough time but I don't have any desire to try it again for joints. I would possibly try it again if my horse had to be on bute specifically for some other issue though. Furthermore, I would still recommend it to a friend since I think it's a better alternative to bute if it works. May as well try it as it's not that costly imo. I give it 4 stars so other people give it a try but 3 for my horse's needs.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Horses love it and works well. I bought this a few orders ago, because I don't like to use much bute. This work great for my horse's arthritis without me having to worry about her stomach. Now keep it always!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Like a new horse I have a 13yr old American Warmblood mare that had several injuries before she came to me. I have been trying to get her back up and going again and didn't think it would happen until I found Buteless. She went from stoic and stiff to running the herd of 7 yr olds in a week!!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Purchased to help an older mare with constant limp that showed no sign of other issues. Within a week she no longer showed her limp. And she ate it with no issues.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from I have used bute less for many years for many horses. I think it works to relieve pain and inflammation as well as many more costly options.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very Happy With Product My daughter's old mare who has arthritis is a very picky eater and over the past 6 months or so, I have been battling to get her to like a supplement that will help her! She has never hesitated to eat her grain with the Buteless pellets added! And I definitely think she's moving a lot smoother now! And I love the price tag!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Butelss Buteless works great for my gelding and mini mare who have joint issues..
    Date published: 2016-09-07
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazingly effective! My gelding has had very bad arthritis for many years now. I tried to manage it by giving him bute on the bad days, but I worried about it being hard on his system if he had it too often, and honestly some days I couldn't even tell if it worked. Within three weeks of starting him on Bute-Less he was cantering around the pasture instead of walking with a limp. His transformation has been amazing, and I can tell that he's much happier. He's feeling good every day now. Thank you for a truly wonderful, life-changing product!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from My horse love it! I have two aged horses (a 20 yo gelding that I ride and a 34 yo mare that is a pasture ornament) and I have both of them on Butt-less pellets daily. They always eat them up and my old mare comes into the barn at a trot or gallop! I know my "younger" gelding has an arthritic right stifle joint that has been injected recently and he appears to be moving better than before.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very surprised! After hurting himself playing in the pasture- my 25 yr old Thoroughbred gelding ended up very stiff and hardly able to walk. We've tried bute in the past only to end up with ulcer-like symptoms. My vet recommended for us to try B-L pellets. We gave him a starting dose of the B-L available in a tube, paste form, then the daily dose of pellets. Surprisingly after one day he is moving so much better and actually walking around the pasture almost like his old self! So happy Smartpak has this available. Hopefully they will carry the paste form soon.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from This product has made a world of difference! My horse stopped eating his Bute for his DSLD diagnosis. He was very uncomfortable and I had taken the steps for his final days. I had decided to give this product a try as a last resort. Wow what a difference this product has made! After a year of slow movements, he now walks better, has been caught cantering a bit in the pasture and even is much friskier.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from We just recently heard of Bute-less. I really liked the idea of it being easier on the horses stomach than bute and did lessen his pain. My horse 'Buddy' has a weak stifle that we are trying to build back up (probably caused from pass abuse). Hill work, going over poles, backing up is hard on his hind quarters. While in training and doing extra work, we like making Buddy feel more comfortable. He was abused enough, as Buddy was a rescue horse and we have no desire to inflict him pain. We really want him to be a happy horse

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quick Results! Been using this for my old 26 yr old Quarter horse and my 25 yr old arthritic saddlebred. Within three weeks u saw a noticeable difference in both my seniors. They absolutely love the taste. My saddlebred had laminitis and a lot of arthritis and he cantered up for grain in his pasture just a couple days ago. It's amazing how fast this worked for them. Absolutely 100% satisfied

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from I can really see a difference! My horse has arthritis from off-set knees and years of competition. Bute-less helps keep her moving and the inflammation at bay. The perk with SmartPak is I don't have to run to the store every month because it automatically ships.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Bought in bulk in addition to SmartPak The recommended dosage of Bute-Less is in my horse's daily Smart-Pak, but it didn't seem to be working. I wanted the option to add additional scoops to see if there would be any difference; especially if there would be any negative effects. For that reason, I didn't want to commit to adding more to the SmartPak. I would have bought a bucket locally, but it was really expensive and every other online option charged a hefty shipping charge. No shipping charge with Smart-Pak (I purchased with a bucket of CETYL-M, so shipping was free). Increasing the dosage has really helped my mare; and, with no negative effects. She still has a good appetite, and seems to have less pain in her hindquarters. I increased her p.m. dosage from one scoop to two, and also added one scoop to her morning grain. So, she receives three scoops daily. I accept that she will never be 100%, but definitely wanted to make her as comfortable as possible. She no longer lies around all day and actually runs and tries to buck now and then! I was worried about increasing the dosage from the recommended amount, so before I did, I researched the effects of Devil's Claw. I didn't find any real negative effects, other than one study indicated that muscle may deteriorate over continued use. I figured that this was going to happen regardless if she was on Devil's Claw or not because she wasn't moving around at all. Also, some other products actually have more Devil's Claw in them per recommended dosage. Bute-Less is very economical even with the increased dosage.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this stuff! Both my QH geldings are on this.. one has navicular and is now sound 90% of the time thanks to this product and a great farrier. I'm amazed at how well he's moving both at the jog and lope. He's actually playing in the pasture with his buddies again! My other gelding has mild facial paralysis due to an old injury. He has swelling that comes and goes. Since I've been giving him this, his face looks 100% better! I'm completely amazed at how well this has worked for both my horses. I'll def keep giving them this!
