Traumeel Injection Benefits

Traumeel is a natural pain remedy for horses and an alternative to pain treatments such as phenylbutazone and butraphol. It is not for intense, long-term treatment; instead, it is meant for minor injuries, trauma or pain. Injection is one way to use traumeel and ensures faster delivery to the injured area.

Ensures Delivery

Using a traumeel injection assures that the medicine goes directly into the body. If you use gels or tablets, your horse may spit them out, which wastes medicine and leaves less medicine for the body to absorb and use to fight the pain.

Better Absorption

The horse's body will more quickly absorb the traumeel when you inject it because it will not have to go through the digestive system and be absorbed via the stomach. With injection, the traumeel will enter right into the bloodstream and muscle. Inject your horse directly on the site of injury or near it; you must use your judgement for this.

Amount Needed

Because the effect of the medicine is faster with injection, you will need less traumeel to treat the trauma than you would with pills or gel. Therefore, you save medicine and your horse is more comfortable sooner.
