The first world guide to performance horse medication regulation, this book presents critical dosing and withdrawal time guidelines for therapeutic medications, from Acepromazine to Xylazine, as recognized by the American Association of Equine Practitioners (AAEP), the Racing Medication and Testing Consortium (RMTC), and other regulatory bodies throughout the world. Here you'll find detailed information and recommendations with regard to:
  
1. Withdrawal Time Guidelines the best available information for therapeutic medications.
2. Regulatory Thresholds the first ever worldwide listing of in-place regulatory thresholds for therapeutic medications.
3. Horsemen's Alerts this volume specifically identifies medications with high probability of producing "positive" calls, explains the reasons for these calls, and presents specific avoidance strategies.
4. Chemist's Alerts listed here are a small number of substances which chemists are not recommended to call.
5. Dietary and Environmental Substances the most comprehensive listing available of thresholds for endogenous, dietary, and environmental substances.
6. Factors Affecting Withdrawal Times Appendix I is an extensive list of factors affecting withdrawal times.
7. The Language of Equine Drug Testing Appendix II includes an extensive review of the language of drug testing, including a list of abbreviations and definitions.
