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??
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.
