    I had a lengthy conversation about bute with my veterinarian. He said that bute was studied, he thought it was in England, where they gave it for 6 out of 7 days, on the 7th day, nothing (or an alternative). He said that they found through testing that the bute flushed out of the system in that one day off. Therefore, they deemed bute to be safe to give in that manner.

    I recommend using marshmallow and slippery elm with devils claw to offset any possible gut irritation. I also would always give them with bute.
