Bute helps my 14 yr. old goat
Having a elderly male Nubian goat with arthritis, my vet prescripted Phenylbutazone tab, 1/4 to 1/2 tab twice each day. This seemed to help and did not upset his appetite. He was on this until his death in 2010. Animals need help with arthritis too. Wanting to keep my Patches as comforable as possible, this gave me some comfort in knowing it helped some. Arthritis is very painful in Human, we all need to remember how pain full it is in our animals too. He was loved to the very end.
