    Having bute is never a bad thing.

    I assume someone there will tell you what the vet has planned once you get there, no?

    No, you can, because having bute on hand is a good thing. But I'd think banamine would be indicated in this instance, instead of bute.

    Banamine's an antiinflammatory, which is what you'd need to combat laminitis.

    She did partly mention bantamine, but in a off note. I'll ask her about it when I get there. She said she is on farm calls until 3. I'm going out to the barn to watch the horses until then.

    If your horse will let you put her front feet into a bucket of ice water.

    If she will not do that, at least cold hose them.

    Butes as an anti-inflammatory as well. At the barn our horses used to stay at before we brought them home. There were quite a few horses that got into the feed room. We did a tablet of bute in each feeding and hydro-therapy on each hoof, 20mins, 3 times a day. Luckily... we stopped anything before it could get started.

    IV is much faster and more effective on an acute case of laminitis.

    Why in the world are you feeding horses that got into the feed??

    I hosed her legs for 15 minutes. I don't really have anything that her huge feet will fit in unless I use their water trough. I'll have to run and get a big bucket and some ice if the hosing isn't enough....

    Both the horses are acting fine.... No swishing tails, biting at stomachs, lameness, legs aren't hot, no rolling, nothing abnormal.

    I was wondering if it would be ok to leave them alone for an hour so I can run to the store and get the stuff and then go to the vet to get the bute?

    It was not my horse, nor my choice. I just know that's what they did. As far as I know it was just enough for the horse to eat the bute. If it was mine, they would NOT have been fed... but like I said not my call.
    And I know that IV is much faster. I just figured... I'd mention that bute is indeed an anti-inflammatory as well. And at 2 tablets a day... it pretty much stays in the system and works all day. My vet would much rather give a horse bute over banamine.

    If they are acting fine I do not see any reason you can not run to the vets, etc.
