Directions for Use:
Legs and Joints:
For fast relief of temporary muscular and joint soreness, swelling and stiffness, apply to sore areas. May be applied two or more times a day.
Arthritis: Deep penetrating heat soothes the pain and swelling of tissues due to arthritis. Rub on stiff and sore joints before and after turn out to increase pain relief.
Muscle Soreness: To relieve pain and stiffness, apply to desired areas and cover with blanket. May be repeated two or more times a day as needed.
Body Wash: Mix 4 oz. of AVL and 8 oz. vinegar with 24 oz. of water to refresh a tired horse. Astringents wash away sweat and dirt, while the antimicrobial formula disinfects and herbal oils shine the coat.
Warm Up: Rub down to increase circulation to muscles and help prevent injuries. Clinically proven to enhance performance.
Post Work Out: Apply to help speed muscle recovery by increasing blood flow to the affected area, helping to reduce soreness, stiffness, swelling and pain. The fast-acting formula is proven to increase blood flow and help your horse heal rapidly.
Setting Up: Professional trainers recommend application after a workout to all four legs and wrapping lightly.
Hoof Disinfectant: The formula penetrates into the porous hoof sole and frog to disinfect. Apply once a week to help prevent bacterial and fungal infections. Use 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 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.

Terrible the new presentation, contents and price.
Terribly disappointed with this new way of selling absorbineThe one I just to buy from you was more absorbine than alcohol.This was 90% alcohol and 10% absorbine and I feel I paid a lot of money for something have no use .

Smells wonderful..........
I have only used it on her once, as it has been so cold. It smells wonderful and my hand sure felt better while rubbing it on her. She is 20, had a shot 3 yrs ago. I know that this must be better than bute on a horse.

Good stuff
Good for equine and human sore muscles. Also mixed with water at one third to two thirds water it helps repel flies. Some attest to mixing 50/50with Keri lotion it is good for massages and arthritis with Bone on bone issues.

good, nothing too fancy
Simple product to rub on your horse's leg on a daily basis. Nothing fancy, just s product to relax their legs after a light workout. I believe you get more benefits bathing your horse with it than rubbing on their legs.

Can't live without this stuff.
This is the cheapest site I can find this stuff. We can not live without it. Very happy to be ordering it from here.

works better than anything else I've tried.
Our mare has arthritis and didn't want to be ridden anymore; even had some bad days of not wanting to walk. We use this before we take her out and she's still slow but we can tell it's loosened up the knee.(Only little kids ride her. ) On days below 20 degrees we apply this and wrap her knee with a blanket and it stays warm #without too much heat) through the night.She is much more comfortable.Depending on the horse - she hates the smell and her daughter loves it.

great for my horses and US!
I have used absorbine on my horses for several years. It is quick acting, long lasting and gives quick relief. It is also excellent on my arthritic leg, arm and back muscles. Never go trail riding or horse camping without it!

great for my horses sore muscles after a competition or work out.
ALETA T on Feb 7, 2017
I bought this once before and I apply as soon as I bring my barrel horse out of the pasture prior to riding and as soon as I get off her after a ride. It helps her so much since she has problems with her hocks from poor farrier work and you can definitely tell when she does not have this on, it's a new horse. She feels better and I'm pain free getting off of her.

My wife has been in and out of doctors offices for fibromyalgia and arthritis pain. Test after test and pain meds and everything is a joke. Relief is only temporary. This item comes highly recommended and with great reviews. I look forward to receiving this item and will follow up wiith my reviews. Looking forward to great results!

Fabulous liniment! Almost immediately makes my 21 year old quarter horse young and frisky again. Although I like the Vetrolin liniment also, I get a much better result from Absorbine.

ALETA T on Feb 7, 2017
can this stuff be used on humans????????????????????????????????????
Tony S on Feb 6, 2017
BEST ANSWER: I used it for years in the Army. Best stuff in the world for a daily morning rub on your feet. Keeps them sanitized, odor free and prevents the usual problems with fungus and athlete's foot. Soak the inside of your sneakers too once in a while.
is it safe for humans?
A shopper on May 2, 2018
BEST ANSWER: It is safe for humans so long as the skin is able to breath. Do not wrap skin in anything, and use cotton balls to apply. I'd also recommend wearing gloves when applying, because the smell is potent.
Does the absorbine veterinary liniment dry skin out?
Guin M on Jul 6, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Never dried my skin out or caused any problem. It actually prevented athlete's foot. I used it for 7 years in the Army on my feet before putting my boots on each day. It just sanitized, eliminates odor and refreshes the skin. Imagine your feet and shoes smelling good after a full day on your feet, every day? Now I soak the inside of my sneakers occasionally. Great stuff!.
Ingredience in Absorbine Gel?
