Q & A

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

Ilona Poole

  • VioVet customer since 2018
  • From: Caerffili, United Kingdom

My Shetland mare has mild laminitis, how would I administer this?

  • VioVet Staff

This product is most easily administered into the feed. It is worth noting it should not be used alongside NSAID medications like phenylbutazone (bute) as the active ingredient Devils Claw may have similar anti-inflammatory effects.

Dog use?


  • VioVet customer since 2018
  • From: South Yorkshire, United Kingdom

I have this for my horse but she has gone onto bute full time. Can this product be used for my arthritic dog?

  • VioVet Staff

This product is intended for use in horses only and unfortunately I cannot advise it's use in dogs. This is because there is no known safe doseage for dogs and it cannot be guaranteed as safe in them.
If you are looking for products for your arthritic dog then I strongly advise our own brand Joint Force. This can be safely used in dogs.

Casey Douglas

Can you give a horse no bute and glucosamine together ?

  • VioVet Staff

Yes No Bute can be used safely with an additional Glucosamine supplement. The No Bute Premium already has Glucosamine in so you probably don't need to supplement more alongside, unless you are using the No Bute Standard version.

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.
