ABOUT PREMARIN HORSES

PremarinŽ, PremproŽ, PremphaseŽ and DuaveeŽ are examples of the PremarinŽ family of drugs which are made with the the estrogen rich urine of pregnant mares.

In the ‘pregnant mare urine’ (PMU) industry, horses are repeatedly impregnated so their urine can be collected and made into hormone replacement products.

Some of the foals are rescued. Most, however, who can not be ‘repurposed’ in some way are sent to slaughter — seen as a byproduct of the industry much like male calves are in the dairy industry.
