These are the general regulations for Equine Canada. Specific information of interest in these guidelines are the medication control section which deals with anti-inflammatories and their permitted amount allowed in performance horses at EC sanctioned events.

These are the drug elimination guidelines set out for all horse's in competition or racing in Canada. Equine Canada uses these guidelines for drug elimination/withdrawal times. TB and SB racing also use these guidelines. In some cases, the USEF guidelines will differ from these so our American competitors are encouraged to review these guidelines closely when moving between countries.
