Certain medicines may not be given to horses that are intended for human consumption. If you have been prescribed one of the medicines for any horse, please ensure that you have signed the medication section XI of the horse’s passport, that declares that the horse ‘is not intended for human consumption’. This is a legal requirement for all horses to allow us to continue using these medicines.
If you are not prepared to sign that the horse is ‘NOT INTENDED FOR HUMAN CONSUMPTION’, these medicines can never be given to that horse.
