ACTION

Many of the activities we are conducting this month to raise awareness about PMU horses do not require anything of you other than increasing your knowledge and sharing it with everyone you know.

If you have not done so, please take the time to send our Dear Physician letter (downloadable PDF, 3 pp) asking doctors to refuse to prescribe Premarin, Prempro or Aprela (awaiting FDA approval).

1. The first step is to print the letter. You need not sign it. It is from the Int'l Fund for Horses, and bears my signature. Will you do that right now? It is in pdf format, and 3 pages long.

2. The next step is to send it to your OB/GYN if you have one. If you do not have one, then find one -- or several, or all of them -- in your area. Prepare the envelope(s), put the letter(s) in and mail.

If you have a close relationship with your doctor, you can personalize your mailing by attaching a handwritten note or letter explaining why you are sending it.

Remember, these pharmaceuticals are being actively marketed by sales people who specialize in these types of prescriptive drugs. We should be marketing at the same level.

We can do this, with your participation.  


Thank you for everything you do for animals!
