Equipalazone contains 1g of phenylbutazone (bute). It is used in the treatment of musculo-skeletal conditions in horses and ponies.

Equipalazone has anti-inflammatory and pain relieving properties so it is useful in the treatment of lameness due to arthritis, laminitis, bursitis, carpitis, and also after surgery. It can be given for a short period, or long-term. Usually it is dosed once daily.

45 Easy to use product

Equipalazone is supplied in easy to open sachets, allowing it to be easily added to the bucket feed. When I offer it to my mare she shows no signs of suspicion of the contents and allows her "hungry" enthusiasm to govern her response, licking the container and the spoon clean at the end of the "meal."

As everyone knows Bute is Bute but the difference in my old boy is incredible. He’s acting like a 4 year old again

Do I need to have bute prescribed by a vet or is it possible to order without vet approval? Thanks.

  • VioVet Staff

This product is a POM-V medication meaning it is prescription only. You will need a written prescription from your vet to purchase this with us. More information can be found here.

I want to buy some bute to put in my first aid box in case I ever need it, does it have a shelf life? Thankyou

  • VioVet Staff

The shelf life as per the data sheet for Equipalazone is as follows:

Shelf life
Shelf life of veterinary medicinal product as packaged for sale: 4 years.
Special precautions for storage
Do not store above 25°C. Store in a dry place.

Actual expiry dates will vary depending on what our supplier sends us at the time and will likely be less than 4 years. This product is also a prescription only medication and can only be purchased alongside a veterinary prescription. It has to be prescribed for a certain pet and cannot be 'stocked' for any horse unless you have a veterinary practise license.

Is Bute available in liquid form?
