Directions for Use:

Legs and Joints:
For fast relief of temporary muscular and joint soreness, swelling and stiffness, apply Absorbine Veterinary Liniment (AVL) to sore areas. May be applied two or more times a day.

Deep penetrating heat soothes the pain and swelling of tissues due to arthritis. Rub AVL on stiff and sore joints before and after turn out to increase pain relief.

Muscle Soreness:
To relieve pain and stiffness, apply AVL to desired areas and cover with blanket. May be repeated two or more times a day as needed.

Body Wash:
AVL cooling body wash refreshes a tired horse. AVL astringents wash away sweat and dirt. AVL's antimicrobial formula disinfects. Herbal oils shine the coat. Recipe: mix 4 oz of AVL and 8 oz vinegar with 24 oz of water.

Warm Up:
A rub down of AVL increases circulation to muscles and helps prevent injuries. Clinically proven to enhance performance.

Post Work Out:
Applying AVL helps speed muscle recovery by increasing blood flow to the affected area, helping to reduce soreness, stiffness, swelling and pain. AVL's fast acting formula is proven to increase blood flow and help your horse heal himself rapidly.

Setting Up:
Professional trainers recommend applying AVL after a workout to all four legs and wrapping lightly.

Hoof Disinfectant:
AVL's formula penetrates into the porous hoof sole and frog to disinfect. Apply once a week to help prevent bacterial and fungal infections. Use AVL daily to treat hoof conditions such as abscesses, cracks, delamination, Thrush and White Line Disease.

Skin Infections:
AVL kills germs on contact and stops the itch in seconds. Use AVL to clean and treat bacterial skin infections like Rain Rot, Scratches, Summer Itch and Tail Itch. Apply to infected area three times a week.

Keep out of the reach of children. Replace cap firmly. For external use on livestock only. Avoid contact with eyes or mucous membranes. Do not apply to irritated skin. If excessive irritation develops, discontinue use and consult a veterinarian. In long standing cases or those not responding to treatment, or in case of purchase or deep wounds, consult a veterinarian. If you rub, don't wrap.

DANGER: Extremely flammable! Keep away from fire, sparks and heated surfaces.

Rated 5 out of 5 by relief This is Amazing Greatest Formula I have ever used! May 17, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by nothing works like this I run a horse retirement facility.Horses come to me with old injuries. It works very well on the aches and stiffness that have been chronic for years. I have had horses come with chronically swollen joints and rubbing it in daily has even reduced joint size. overall this liniment has relieved many aches and pains so I swear by this stuff!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Continues to impress!!! I bought Absorbine because I had been looking for a liniment to keep around the barn and theirs was versatile, and damn am I glad I did! This is my go-to product now! We use it before warming up the young fresh and old arthritic horses and post workout on everyone, put it under light wraps when walking out rehab horses, bathing at shows, we recently tried it on a chronically thrush-y TB and it cleared up in two days and has been gone since when thrush buster did nothing but stain! Use it all the time instead of bute for our geriatric horses (double strength bath,cold or warm/massage)and they are very happy! Even had a bored baby that would rub out his mane, every morning we rubbed this into the bare spot and he quite rubbing day one, month later you couldnt even tell the hair had been missing it grew so fast! Only thing I can note is some horses stamp when this is applied to lower legs/hooves, none have shown any pain, this just tingles and some horses are not accustom to it so watch yourself! Overall I LOVE this product and encourage anyone needing a liniment to not hesitate, get this one!!!! ** Also works great on people** December 29, 2012

Lighter duty liniment for after workouts. Is more convenient with the spray bottle than the gel.
