    We normally get the paste. Chuck it in a syringe and squirt it into the back of their mouth. Nice and easy. :)

    Since my girl's daily stuff is a mash anyway, I just cut up a bute pill using scissors, then throw it in with her "grain." The pellets and pills all sort of dissolve together and it works pretty well. I generally add something "extra tasty" like raspberry leaves, when I feed bute, just to help the taste, but she has never had a problem with just grain and bute tablets.

    She is NOT picky. At all.

    For one of the horses I work with, we stick the bute tablet between 2 mints with molasses, so it's a mint/bute sandwich. He eats it right up and he's pretty picky. If your horse won't eat that (I know mine won't), I'd crush it, mix it with applesauce and squirt it in the mouth with a syringe. Good luck!

    Anebel where do you get the strawberry flavored bute. I used it several years ago through a vet in Florida but can't recall the mfg. Name.

    I use the paste, get it in. I have used the tabs crushed in some apples and some how they spit the small parts out.

    I've only ever had the powder and had to mix it with apple sauce and syringe it.
    I give my old girl Previcox - half or quarter of a tablet and I make a hole in a chunk of apple and push the tablet in - she's really fussy but eats it no trouble at all

    Anebel does he give it to you in the original bottle, I remember it had a tan and green label, just can't recall the name of the pharmacy supplier.

    It comes in the vet clinic bottle, fairly sure it's just generic?
