Equine Medications Resources
I've posted about the equine drug rules before, but mostly about what is permitted and what is not permitted. To expand, I will post a few resources about withdrawal/detection times to help plan showing when certain drugs must be used. Of course, it is best to consult with your veterinarian whenever you use a medication and never trust the detection times completely, but these provide helpful general guidelines.
