Is there any other way to get bute other than through the vet?

Not that I have found and I have looked. Either through a vet, or get a prescription from the vet and you can buy it on line. Too many people abuse it on their animals. Probably a good thing it is controlled.

Call a vet. Establish a relationship that way when you do need one, you aren't searching at the last minute.

Then get your bute from them.

I do know the vet that has seen him is pretty close to me so ill give them a call. I can't afford a visit from them right now but I will be able to soon

Swollen? Where? It could just be windgalls or an allergy and not necessarily something that needs bute.

If you think your horse needs bute, it would be a good idea to get your vet out just to take a look and make sure. From there it shouldn't be a problem getting some.

Good Luck

Just wanted to add - if they are close, you might be able to go and pick it up - avoiding the trip fee all-together. I know that my trio of vets would rather someone pick it up than drive all the way out somewhere just to deliver bute... :)
