Help manage your horse's pain and inflammation with Nature's Aspirin®. AspirEase III contains purified pharmaceutical grade salicin - the original source of aspirin. In this purified form, however, salicin is gentler on the GI tract than aspirin and does not thin the blood like aspirin. Use for short-term management of acute pain, fever and inflammation associated with wounds, cuts, abrasions, and soft tissue pain in horses.
Salicin is a COX-2 inhibitor, which means it inhibits the functions that cause inflammation, pain and swelling. Herbal COX-2 inhibitors (like salicin) work in the body with significantly less inhibition of COX-1 (compared to aspirin) which means fewer gastrointestinal problems for a better safety profile.
The ingredients in AspirEase III formulas are microencapsulated to enhance palatability. Flavor enhancers ensure acceptance. Choose from AspirEase Gel 3X or AspirEase Powder. Low cost, wide margin of safety, with a delicious apple and molasses flavoring.
Powder: Give one level scoop for adult horses (1,000 lbs) once or twice daily as needed at feeding time.
