This is might be an obvious question, but how long does it take for bute to take effect?

It's very rare that I use it, but It would be nice to know how long it takes before it starts to work.

We use bute very rarely, but it always seemed to start to have an effect within an hour.

I'd say 30 - 60 mins. Although I try to stay away from it because of the side effects. Only when horses are in very bad pain.

Depends, are you injecting or giving it orally?

I'll see if I can find the charts that show when its effect peaks. It stays in the system for 3 days. You can actually probably find the chart online. Do a search.

It's just a powder I add to the grain, for the rare occasion I use it.

Thanks everyone. This helped.
