Flunixin, also known as Banamine, is an anti-inflammatory medication used to treat conditions such as colic or eye pain in horses. Other drugs of this type include Bute and Equioxx.
Banamine can be given orally or intravenously but injection in the muscle is not recommended due to the risk of a deep muscle infection. Having Banamine paste on hand can be very useful in an emergency situation, however, we request you call Starwood prior to administering any medication to your horse. Banamine should not be given with Bute or Equioxx and should be used with caution in horses with a history of stomach ulcers.
If you would like to have a dose of Banamine for emergencies, you can order it from our online pharmacy at http://starwoodequine.vetsfirstchoice.com
