Soiled Bedding Serves as a Vehicle for Drug Contamination
Cleanliness in the stall can equal cleanliness on the drug tests, especially when it comes to sport horses receiving therapeutic medications, according to results from a new project under development by French researchers.
Presented at the 34th Annual Equine Research Day in Paris Feb. 28, the study complements previous research showing that treated horses can contaminate other horses and/or re-contaminate themselves with the same drug even after the medication has been stopped, potentially resulting in positive results on drug tests.
