    I keep Aniprin (aspirin powder) and DMSO on hand and fresh at all times. Most things I can treat with that. If there is swelling or pain I figure aspirin is what I would take myself. DMSO is great for some quick heat when needed. The main thing is to keep all meds fresh. Don't give your horse some medicine that's been on the shelf for a year or 2
    I very rarely run into something I need bute for.

    His legs get swollen every once in a while. I called the vet and they said they want to come look at him, and I can't do that right now because I can afford it.

    Ive been able to buy Bute without the vet seeing my horse. I used it when sadies feet were trimmed at the wrong angles (only used that guy once )...anyhow she was very sore and I couldnt get my normal guy out right away so I went into the vet office and bought the bute and then kept her in a smaller pen so that she didnt go running around.

    Erin, When do your horse's legs swell? Is it after a ride or after being stalled?

    If it is from being in a stall, it is quite common for swelling to occur in the pastern area. It's called stocking up and it's just from not being able to move around as much.

    If you don't know what is causing it then I would avoid any medication until you do.
