The Horse : Toxin Topic: Anticoagulant Rodenticides

Many horse owners do not realize that baits used to kill mice, rats, and small rodents are also poisonous to horses and other mammals.

Another thing to keep in mind is the effect of decomposing Rodents in hay or other feed and the risk of Botulism, that is not discussed in the above article. I do not use bait, but rely on traps, as cats would not be appropriate in the area I live in due to risks to native wildlife.

I ride horses and compete in Dressage, Showjumping and Eventing or Horse Trials. I also own and run an Equestrian property to the East of Melbourne, Australia. In my spare time I run a couple of websites including http://www.horseoz.com and http://www.carinyapark.com. To afford all this I work a full time job, so the definition of spare time is usually after dark. Sleep is over rated ;-) In my Blogs I try to tell what I am doing with the horses, give some updates with regards to the equestrian events I am attending and any relevant news about horse health and performance. I also give reviews on any new products I get my hands on related to my horsey activities If yuo want to buy or sell horses or anything equestrian related try http://www.horseoz.com/forsale
