    It is a weak NSAID, with the same risk/benefit profile. Probably equivalent to giving 1/10th of a bute tablet, except the potency in herbal preparations is not necessarily consistent from batch to batch.

    I'd sooner give 1/10th of a bute tablet.

    I used BL Solution, which has devil's claw and yucca, and found it to be similar in efficacy to 1/2 gram of bute.

    Devil's claw is an NSAID like bute and it has a very similar, if not exactly the same, side effect profile to any other NSAID. I don't think there's any reason to believe that consistent use of devil's claw will be "saving your horse's insides."

    One other consideration to devil's claw is that it is a forbidden substance under USEF rules- it will test.

    I use BL Solution on my retired mare. It appears to have helped her be more comfortable out in the pasture. She will trot and canter a bit more than she did before.

    As an aside, you are being a tad rude to posters who are trying to provide you with information. If you don't want to hear anyone's answers, then why did you post?
