Global Herbs Alphabute powder is a much more potent alternative to the use of products based on Devils Claw. It provides nutritional help in only a few hours and supports the circulation to affected areas which is important for muscle and tendon comfort. Ease away your horse’s troubles.

Start feeding Alphabute 1-2 hours before required effect. It can be used just for one day or continuously for many months. Many customers will use Alphabute for several months at a time.

Now available is Alphabute Super, a stronger version which commonly works within the hour but is consequently more expensive.

Omg! I was sceptical about trying another bute alternative but was getting fed up with having to pay best part of £100 for a trainee vet to tell me my horse has laminitis before i can get more bute each time. However, two days in my hobbling oldie was leaping, bucking and kicking like a 2 year old. I was so pleased with the results I've brought the bigger tub. Amazing! 😁

Q & A

Below are some recent questions we've received regarding Global Herbs Alphabute for Horses, including answers from our team.

Could alphabute provide relief for discomfort post farrier visit?


I was advised by the old owner of my horse that he often becomes foot sore after the farrier has seen him. This normally only lasts a couple of days but on occasion has needed to use bute to relieve his discomfort. Would alphabute be suitable to use for short periods to help relieve the discomfort from his sensitive hooves?

  • VioVet Staff

Alphabute could well be helpful in this situation and would be worth a try. However it will never offer the same amount of pain relief as a prescription medication such as bute. If you find he is not comfortable enough on the Alphabute then you can speak to your vet about having some bute sachets to give him after the farrier has been.

Can I compete in affiliated competition when feeding alphabute

Dawn Hodgson

  • VioVet Staff

This product contains no banned substances for competition horses so you can use it safely.

Will Alphabute help my elderly show jumper?

Chris keoghan

I have a 24 yr old ex grade A show jumper. He was not any pain relief when I got him in January 2015 but recently has become sore on his hind legs. It seems to be stifle related and when given prescribed Bute he becomes sound. I Donot want to give him Bute constantly would Alpha Bute have the same anti inflammortary effects?

  • VioVet Staff

Herbal replacements for "Bute" are not as potent and probably do not work in the same way. However they can seem to help many horses, though the mechanism of action has not been identified to my knowledge. The only way you will find out if it works for your horse is to try it. Many people use this product all the time combined with periodic courses of Bute if and when required. This might suit your horse.

My old mate got herself caught in a cattle grid almost a year ago and although her injuries are healing well I am struggling to keep her sound. Would alphabute help to keep her comfortable and sound during the remainder of her recovery?

  • VioVet Staff

This is difficult to say because it will depend on exactly why she is not fully sound already and the nature of the injuries she received. This will do no harm and might well help, but limited exercise, prescription anti-inflammatory medication and other things might perhaps be needed too.

Is this product suitable for laminitics? My pony is had arthritis in her hock & is currently on danilon - I would like to get her off this though & onto a natural product that can ease her discomfort.

  • VioVet Staff

Herbal products tend to be less potent than Danilon but safer, especially given long-term. It is difficult to know how well your pony will respond to this product because the response varies between different individuals. The only way to find out is to try it and see. It is potentially suitable for your pony and might well provide a good response, but you will need to try it first. Some people alternate between herbal and NSAID therapy (such as Danilon) and this seems to work well too.
