Messing with Biodyl a performance enhancing supplement formula

seems to be the culprit in the deaths of 21 polo horses in Florida last weekend.

Autopsy results seem to indicate 21 Wellington polo ponies died from complications

before their tournament causing the lungs to hemorrhaging and pulmonary edema.

The supplement was mixed in correctly in the pharmacy and altered under a vet’s recommendation. Two problems 1) altering any drug without FDA approval in this country is against the law and 2) this supplement is not sanctioned in the US. Horses treated with the compound became sick and died within 3 hours of treatment
