I'm using some Vet Anti Fungal cream on a rooster's comb. The tube carries a warning

'Not to be used on horses intended for human consumption'

Guess it is reflection of our multiculturalism.

Horsemeat is not sold in Australia for human consumption. Massive export industry exists though: only two abbatoirs licenced to slaughter horses for human consumption - one in Peterborough SA, one in Qld. Both Belgian owned, go figure. Regular truckloads from the Victorian sales, Echuca etc, cross the border - they take the best and youngest (mainly ex race horses). It's a nasty cruel secretive sort of business. Older or poorer condition Vic horses go to various Vic knackeries for the petfood industry, not human consumption.

Alot of countries eat all sorts of things that we turn our noses up at , eg in china , dogs, cats bats , rats, spiders, cockroachs to name a few. And probably horses there as well. Horses are probably a lean meat and if you ate it at a Restaurant overseas without knowing would possibly think your eating deer or similar, unless you know what deer tastes like :hmmm: . Its like when we eat the young buck goats , some people are grossed out ,, GOAT :shoc .

The meat withholding statement has been on all medication for horses for many years. I am guessing sue55 either hasn't used many medications intended for horses or her vets label has covered the statement, as the vet knew the medication was for fowl this would not be an issue. I checked with the regulatory affairs people at work and they agreed with PC that the statement was for meat being exported. As people selling horse through saleyards refer to them as "doggers" and assume they are going to dog food, even if they did care (which is a pretty big assumption) the animals are not in the owners opinion "intended for human consumption", so I would think it is a totally pointless act to have the statement on medication but it is probably an APVMA requirement.
