What feed supplements can I use?

17 Jul 14

The ingredients in a feed supplement should be for maintaining normal body function by nutrition. Thus a feed supplement claiming to be a treatment in labelling or advertising, and/or that contains substances in amounts that may be restoring, correcting or modifying physiological functions by exerting a pharmacological, immunological or metabolic action is likely to result, under the Rules of Racing as being considered as a treatment containing Prohibited Substances and its administration, as well as its detection, may lead to disciplinary sanctions.

Interpretation of the difference between a feeding stuff and a treatment must therefore be a question of informed context and judgment. BHA would assess the claims made for the product, the substance present using authoritative scientific information and the amounts of active substance present.
