THA to Host Continuing Education Webinar on Compounded Medications,Monday, July 12 at 2-3 p.m. ET

The Thoroughbred Horsemen’s Association will host an online
Continuing Education webinar on “Compounded Medications:
What Trainers Need to Know
” on Monday, July 12, from 2-3 p.m.
ET. Trainers and assistant trainers who participate will earn one
(1) hour of CE credit toward the annual CE requirement. In
addition, the webinar will be recorded and posted on the new
continuing education website for trainers and assistant trainers,


www.HorsemenU.com.


The presentation will feature Dr. Dionne Benson, Chief Veterinary Officer at The Stronach
Group Racing and Gaming. Compounded substances are an area of concern for trainers
interested in ensuring horse health and avoiding potential regulatory issues. While the use of
compounded substances has a place in proper horse care, often they are overused which
increases the risk to horses and trainers alike. This CE will teach trainers the differences
between compounded, generic and label medications. Additionally, the potential risks of using
compounded medication will be covered.
