Hi Dr. Getty, I have a container of Super Substitute. Can I give this to a mare who 3 weeks ago had a mild case of laminitis? She is not IR, but is still moving somewhat tenderly Thanks!

Re: Super Substitute

Hello DB,

Certainly -- this is a good way to avoid having to give bute continually. I have had many customers and clients use Super Substitute with excellent results.

All the best,
