As USEF NSAID rules change it's time to go organic
NSAIDs (non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs) may help mask
lameness while reducing pain, swelling, and inflammation, but they
can also be very harmful to the equine athlete. NSAIDs can
contribute to GI ulcers and colic, renal and liver toxicity, and
decrease a horse’s health and performance.
The USEF now requires a “NSAID Disclosure form” to be filed with
the Steward/Technical Delegate if more than one NSAID is used during
a competition or in the 5 days preceding a USEF competition.
Starting December 1, 2011, the presence of only one NSAID will be
allowed! The seven NSAIDs currently allowed with quantitative
restrictions are Bute, Banamine, Naproxen, Ketofen, Arquel, Equioxx,
and topical Surpass.
