My mare got the snot kicked out of her and is pretty uncomfortable. There are two distinct hoof marks on her hip and some swelling in those areas. Doctored her up as best I could but I am wondering if there is anything I can get for her to help with pain relief tonight. Can horses take aspirin? I don't have any bute and neither does my BO apparently, and everything horse/animal relates is closed on a Sunday night.
Sometimes it is better for a horse to feel some pain from an injury v.s being on a painkiller. The discomfort they feel will keep them from playing around and making an injury worse. If she is going to be seen by a vet come Monday or Tuesday, I wouldn't try to give her aspirin or any other pain medications. The dosage for her is unknown and will be an educated guess at best, if she is in bad enough shape to need the painkillers when the vet sees her, then the vet will be able to instruct you on what all you can give her.
