Free webinar on the safe handling of medication in competition horses

DR Kevin Corley DACVIM DACVECC of EquiTrace will discuss the safe handling of medication in competition horses and avoiding accidental positive drug tests in a free webinar on Tuesday, June 29th.

After the positive drug test in the Kentucky Derby for Medina Spirit which brought the racing industry into disrepute, Corley explains how athletic horses inevitably get injuries or illnesses and welfare demands that these must be treated.

It is clear that solutions must be found that protect horse welfare and prevent necessary drugs being completely withdrawn. Dr Kevin Corley shares his insights into the responsible use of medications in competition horses.

The talk marks the release of EquiTrace drugs module. EquiTrace is an app for horse trainers developed by Dr Corley that eliminates the two most common causes of positive drugs test. These are not actual foul play, but human error.

Either underestimating withdrawal times, or giving a drug to the wrong horse. The new drugs feature of the app is accepted by the IHRB as an alternative to the blue book and is already in use by leading trainer Dermot Weld.
