I run a rising school and my horses were exposed to salinomycin as well as monensin over a period of 5 weeks.
We do not know the levels in all retained bags as the food company refuses to give us this ,
But we do have our own samples taken which some shows alarmingly high values.
We had our first heat scans , ecg’s as well as zonar done and now the horses have started an exercise program.
There seem to be different believes wether it will be safe to use the horses in the riding school again as some state that there can be scarring on the hearts which the tests don’t pick up on, while the vet that came out ( sourced by the food companies " independant " vets ) says its perfects safe.
Any opinions ?
The last thing I would want is to drop with a rider and th rider breaks it’s neck and dies . I can not afford take ANY chance with a child or adult client.
