    Thanks for all the great info, guys!
    Just checked on the girly and there are slobber marks where she's been biting. I'll be calling the vet tomorrow... :/

    Bute is hard on their tummies. If she's prone to ulcers it may not be your best bet. If you can get some banamine on hand, it may be more helpful.

    That said, if you've already administered the bute, wait on any banamine. A horses kidneys and liver can't take it all at once. Really bad for them.

    Hope she's feelin better soon.

    Thanks ninamebo for the advice! I'll be sure to remember that bit about mixing of bute and banamine- I didn't know that!
    Next time I talk to the vet, I'm going to see about some bute and banamine for my first aid box.
