star this property answer text <p>Furosemide is an active ingredient authorised for use in veterinary medicines for dogs, cats and horses. Products containing furosemide are diuretic and are used to treat a build-up of fluid within the body, for example as a result of congestive heart failure. Medicines containing furosemide must be prescribed by a veterinary surgeon before they can be administered to an animal.</p><p> </p><p>The Government does not seek to interfere with the clinical judgement of a veterinary surgeon in determining the best available treatment to an animal under his or her care.</p><p> </p><p>There are no regulatory concerns that would necessitate a ban on the use of furosemide on the grounds of safety, quality or efficacy. Any ban on the use of a product in an equestrian sporting discipline is the responsibility of the relevant sport’s governing body.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>Currently only two circuses still use wild animal acts in Great Britain. Given any breach of the ban proposed in the Wild Animals in Circuses (No.2) Bill would involve a circus performing or exhibiting a wild animal in public, we do not believe many, if any, circuses will seek to contravene the ban. Therefore our estimate is that any cost to Defra of enforcing the ban will be negligible.</p> more like this
