Wow, who would poison horses? Poor animals.
Who knows if is a poison or a epidemic that swept the horses. The investigation is ongoing.
Still, clues have come together as an Ocala-based pharmacy acknowledged it incorrectly mixed a vitamin compound given to the horses just hours before they died – a compound the Lechuza Caracas polo team says an unidentified Florida veterinarian requested.
The U.S. Food and Drug Administration says the compound is of questionable legality and attorneys say there could be costly consequences for its use.
Citing anonymous sources, La Nacion newspaper of Argentina, reported today that the formula given to the horses contained ten times the correct amount of selenium. The newspaper reported that 0.5 mg/ml was prescribed but the compound actually contained 5 mg/ml.
