Q & A

Below are some recent questions we've received regarding No Bute The Original Horse Supplement, including answers from our team.

Osteoarthritis in a horse

Donna McKinlay

  • VioVet customer since 2019
  • From: West Midlands, United Kingdom

My horse has osteoarthritis in his knees bad.
He is26 years old. At the moment he has 1 bute aday, is no bute as strong and effective as a alternative

  • VioVet Staff

No Bute contains herbal ingredients that can provide mild anti-inflammatory effects, but are not as potent as normal bute (phenylbutazone). It is a safer alternative, as it is a herbal supplement not a medication, but it will not provide as strong an effect as actual bute.

Stallion and the difference in the standard and premium product.


Hi There. Can this be fed to my stallion that is running with mares? He is 4 years old and in his first covering season.

  • VioVet Staff

Yes, this product is perfectly safe for stallions.

  • VioVet customer since 2015
  • From: Durham, United Kingdom

My pony is slightly lame. Would this work the same as bute?

  • VioVet Staff

Devils claw (the ingredient in No Bute) is a nutraceutical thought to have some analgesic effect. Many people find it very effective for their horses. However a licensed drug such as bute which is clinically proven to have anti-inflammatory and analgesic effects in horses usually works better.

How much would I need to give a 15h horse?

Jan S

Would I need to give this daily to get the best results and how much for a 15h 22 yr old cob?

  • VioVet Staff

I would recommend 40mls every day for 2 weeks, then you can reduce the dose to 20 or 30mls per day after that. You can miss some days, especially after the first 2 weeks, but ideally you give some every day.

26 August 2015 at 10:32pm

Competition legal?


is Premium No Bute competition legal for dressage >>

  • VioVet Staff

No Bute does not contain any banned substances and so it is safe to use in competition.

Is this safe for a mare in foal?

Stephanie Chapman

Hello, my mare is currently in foal and on regular bute she has one sachet every other day so I am looking at taking her off this and using a substitute that is suitable for her whilst in foal. Is this a product you would deem safe for this instance please? Or is there any other products you have that you would feel more suited? She has the bute to prevent lameness from Ringbone.

Thank you in advance for your help.

  • VioVet Staff

There is a general presumption against giving any medication (including herbal supplements) during the first third of pregnancy. This is a time when the developing foetus is particularly vulnerable and if possible all medications would be stopped at this time. If your mare is not too bad then I would suggest giving nothing at this time. After that, it might be that No Bute will be safer and adequately effective for your mare, so it is indeed a possibility. You should really discuss this with your own vet first though. None of the herbal treatments have been scientifically tested for safety during pregnancy to my knowledge, so we cannot be certain about them, but the well known ones like this have been so extensively used that they are probably safe enough.

No Bute and time lapse


How long does it take for No Bute to ease stiff joints? If I use maintenance dose for 2 weeks then refrain from use, will I notice an immediate effect or does it stay in the body for any length of time?

  • VioVet Staff

For most horses the improvement tends to be gradual and any decline is not immediate. I would say that this product generally appears to provide a mild help and is not as dramatic or potent as prescription medications, but all horses vary and some seem to show a better response than others.
