Bute vs. Banamine

I just love horse.com e-mails.  They have the best articles in them.  The latest one they sent, Bute and Banamine: Avoid Using Together, by Nancy S. Loving, DVM was fascinating!

For lameness, Bute was the best!  The only issue I had with this study was the self creating lameness and measuring the amount of pain each horse was in.  It seemed a inhumane to me to intentionally make a horse lame.  I’m sure they could have found several already afflicted with lameness and studied them – but then again, I’m no scientist!

About Heather Hamel

Growing up with horses is a little girls dream come true. Heather’s dream in life was to be a horse trainer - how dreams change - sort of! She moved to the wonderfully historic town of St. Augustine, Florida and was a historic tour guide and a ghost story teller while putting herself through college to become a special education teacher. After graduating, she felt the pull of horses in her life again. That's when she met Kobi! She learned quickly that when you own horses you become a part time vet, part time nutritionist, and full time equestrian. She wouldn't change a thing! In addition to being completely obsessed with her herd, she still teaches and tutors students with learning disabilities, and more specifically, dyslexia.
