Use of information in this booklet does not relieve or lessen any trainer’s responsibility for assuring that, during a horse race, a horse is free from any drug listed in the Schedule to the Pari-Mutuel Betting Supervision Regulations and for complying with provisions of the Regulations and provincial racing rules.
Owners, trainers or any other person in charge or having care of a race horse are strongly advised to consult their own veterinarian for advice and guidance in the use of all drugs.
The guidelines in this booklet are SPECIFIC to the stated products, dosages and routes of administration and may not be consistent with foreign regulations and laboratory methods.
The use of other products such as compounded medications with the same active ingredient(s) or concurrent use of multiple products may result in drug eliminations which are not consistent with these guidelines.
