The British Horseracing Authority wish to draw Trainers attention to advice issued by the manufacturer of Carprofen (currently available as "Rimadyl" granules or injection) in 1997 that, after a course of treatment, the drug may be detected in urine for up to 14 days. There is additional evidence that, under certain circumstances, the drug may be detectable in urine for up to 20 days after administration and Trainers should consult their Veterinary Surgeons before declaring to race any horses that have been recently treated with Carprofen.
