What is the common name for the equine pain killer phenylbutazone?
Asked in Domestic Dogs, Dog Health
Can you give a dog phenylbutazone?
Asked in Horse Health
What would the dosage of phenylbutazone be for horses?
Phenylbutazone ( Bute), should be given under a equine veterinarians direction as it can cause multiple issues including liver damage, ulcers, and even internal hemorrhage. However it is generally known that the maximum dose that should be given per day is two grams or less. Again consult with a veterinarian before administering bute.
Asked in Veterinary Medicine, Anti-Inflammatories
Is Phenylbutazone safe for humans?
No; it has been pulled from the market for human use due to the development of irreversible liver damage when combined with even small amounts of other household painkillers such as acetominophen. It can also significantly affect the duration of action of many commonly prescribed drugs, including several that control diabetes, anticoagulants used to control platelet formation to help prevent strokes or heart attacks, and several classes of antibiotics. There is a human formulation available only through prescription in the UK, but it is considered a last-line therapy for ankylosing spondylitis in that country. In the short term, provided the patient does not combine phenylbutazone with any other medication it interacts with, the risks are somewhat nominal and similar to other NSAIDS (GI bleeding, liver damage, etc.). In the long term, however, phenylbutazone carries risks for aplastic anemia (inability to make red blood cells) and kidney failure.

How long is the shelf life for phenylbutazone powder?
Asked in Birth Control, Birth Control Pill
What medications affect the birth control pill?
Reduced efficacy can come from, rifampin (an anti tuberculosis agent), barbituates (certain sedatives), phenylbutazone (anti-inflammatory, arthritis drug), phenytoin (anticonvulsant), carbamazepine (anticonvulsant), griseofulvin (antifungal antibiotic), topiramate (anticonvulsant) and st.johns wort (a mood evener).
Asked in Care of Horses, Veterinary Medicine
What medicine do you use for shipping fever in horses?
Shipping fever is more common in cattle than in horses. However, you could help alleviate the fever with some phenylbutazone. Shipping fever is a multiple infection syndrome, generally involving a primary viral infection of the upper respiratory system complicated by a secondary bacterial infection.
Asked in Medication and Drugs
Can phenylbutazone get you high?
I am not exactly sure, but I think it is possible. This evening, as I was giving some to my injured horse, I accidently ingested some, and afterwards I was feeling the same effects one feels when high. So I would believe it is a possibility. Highly would not recomend as it is too easy to overdose with, the side effects can be very severe, and it is not smart to get 'high'.
Asked in Care of Horses, Horse Breeds
What are two common nsaid used in horses?
The two most common NSAID's are Phenylbutazone (Called 'Bute') and Flunixin Meglumine(brand name Banamine). But there are a few others including Acetylsalicylic Acid (Asprin), Ketoprofen (Ketofen), And Meclofenamic Acid (Arquel). Always consult an equine vet before adminstering any medications to a horse.

Asked in Food Safety
What food safety issues arise from the horse meat scandal?
There was very little safety issue in the horse meat scandal. The biggest concern was the confidence lost by the consumer. There was .5% of phenylbutazone found in the meat. This can cause aplastic anaemia but only in those susceptible to it. The chances of a person being exposed to the toxin and being susceptible to aplastic anaemia are between 1 in 100 million and 1 in 500 billion, so there is little safety risk.
Can you take echinacea with microgynon?
It would be best to check with your GP. I know that St.John's Wort can affect the contraceptive ability of Microgynon 30, as can; * Antibiotics (such as ampicillin and rifampicin) * Griseofulvin (Used to treat fungal infections) * Phenylbutazone (An anti-inflammatory drug used to treat some types of joint diseases) * Phenytoin, Primidon, Phenobarbiton and some other medicines used to treat people with epilepsy such as carbamezepine. I would highly suggest you give your gp a ring and find out from him/her.
Asked in Horse Diet and Nutrition
What do you do if your horse horse has a bowed tendon?
You can hose the leg with cold water to decrease inflammation. This is called cold therapy. Hose the horses leg for 15 minutes, let it heat up again for 3 minutes, then continue hosing. repeat this 3 times. You can also apply bandages, but be careful. If you do not know how to correctly apply the bandages, don't apply them. Incorrectly applied bandages can harm the leg even more. You can also consult your vet and give your horse anti-inflammatory drugs, such as phenylbutazone (bute), and flunixin meglamine (banamine).
Asked in Veterinary Medicine
Is there a cure for laminitis?
This depends upon what you are referring to as laminitis. For acute laminitis, you can try cooling the hoof with water baths or soaking with a hose, giving oral phenylbutazone to relieve inflammation and stall resting the horse. If the inflammation resolves fast enough and the damage was minimal enough, the tissue will be repaired by the horse's body and the episode can be considered cured. For chronic laminitis, there is no cure (the tissue has already been damaged beyond repair) but you can typically manage the symptoms and delay progression of the condition through careful exercise restriction, corrective shoeing and adjustments to the bedding and feed.
Im currently on Microgynon 30 and I was prescribed tablets from the doctor last week. Ibuprofen 500mg. I was wondering will my contraceptive pill still work while Im taking Ibuprofen?
Yes, your contraceptive pill will be just as effective when taking Ibuprofen. The only medecines which can cause contraceptive faliure with Microgynon 30 are: * Antibiotics (such as ampicillin and rifampicin) * Griseofulvin (Used to treat fungal infections) * Phenylbutazone (An anti-inflammatory drug used to treat some types of joint diseases) * Phenytoin, Primidon, Phenobarbiton and some other medicines used to treat people with epilepsy such as carbamezepine. Hope this helps. The leaflet inside your box of pills will also inform you and answer lots of other queries you might have.

Asked in Care of Horses
What is Bute for horses?
"Bute", phenylbutazone, is a non-steroidal anti-inflammatory medication that is used to help treat pain associated with musculoskeletal system and to treat fever and inflammation. It is commonly used by horse owners t treat chronic pain conditions such as arthritis. However, care should be exercised when using bute as it can lead to the formation of gastric ulcers because it also affects the stomachs ability to secrete protective enzymes that would normally prevent GI ulcers. Bute should not be used for longer than 3 times a day and should be used at the lowest effective dose because the risk of GI ulcers is directly related to dosing--the higher the dose and the longer the use, the more risk of ulcers developing. Bute will also show up in most any testing, so should not be used for any horses showing, and is not allowed for use in horses going to slaughter.
