Premarin Horses: How many does it take to make a billion dollars? Part 3

Tuesday's Horse

Premarin foals. Premarin foals.

How will this new drug impact profits and inevitably the PMU mares and their foals?

DUAVEE®, the Premarin® ― bazedoxifene combination therapy for the treatment of menopausal symptoms and prevention of postmenopausal osteoporosis in women who have not undergone hysterectomy was FDA-approved in October 2013 amid speculation regarding its safety profile and Pfizer/Wyeth’s lengthy struggle to gain approval.

Pfizer anticipates that DUAVEE® will be available in the U.S. in the first quarter of 2014.

This is the first approval of DUAVEE® in any country worldwide ― an approval of a combination drug with the component bazedoxifene yet to receive FDA approval on its own ― its approval is valid only in combination with Premarin®, at least in the US ― a conundrum in itself and worthy of further debate.

Some market analysts estimate DUAVEE®’s peak sales to reach $200 million (USD)/annum. [1]

DUAVEE® will be sold as a…

We Interrupt Your Celebratory Michael Vick News for This Reminder

YesBiscuit!

As football fans swoon with the news that the NY Jets have signed Michael Vick and he may be a starting quarterback next season instead of a backup, I thought I’d just take a moment to remind the internet that Michael Vick tortured and killed dogs, was never charged with animal cruelty for those crimes and never served a day in jail for them.  Vick pleaded guilty to one count of Conspiracy to Travel in Interstate Commerce in Aid of Unlawful Activities and to Sponsor a Dog in an Animal Fighting Venture in 2008.  The animal cruelty charge was dropped in the plea agreement.  Do not peddle your “He’s paid for his crimes” excuse here.

At the time, the Humane Society of the United States had harsh words regarding Vick’s slap on the wrist from the state of VA which added no time to his 23 month federal sentence

Idaho Lawmakers Pass Bill to Kill Hundreds of Wolves

$400,000 to Be Spent Wiping Out 500 Wolves, Setting Up Wolf-killing Board

BOISE, Idaho— The Idaho Legislature today passed House Bill 470, a bill to create a new lethal “Wolf Depredation Control Board” to administer a fund for widespread killing of wolves in the state. The bill, expected to be signed into law by Idaho Gov. C.L. “Butch” Otter, sets aside $400,000 in state funds to kill roughly 500 wolves, leaving just 150 in the entire state.

The new board will consist of members appointed and overseen by Otter, who said in 2007 that he wanted to be the first to kill an Idaho wolf after federal protections were taken away. The board will be made up of representatives of the agricultural, livestock and hunting communities. The bill does…

PeTA PLEDGES: End the cruel fur trade in South Africa

FUR OUT THE CLOSET:

As part of my campaign towards ending the fur trade in South Africa I have started an online pledge for those who will never buy any item containing real fur. This in turn will be used to request that retailers officially pledge to never sell items containing real fur in SA. This has been done in other places.
  • West Hollywood has banned the sale of real fur
  • There is a ban on fur in the Irish counties of Dublin and Fingal
  • Department stores in Australia have banned the sale of fur on their properties
  • Israel is in the process of implementing a TOTAL ban on the fur trade                                                                    

We want South Africa to follow this international trend…

STOP HORSE SLAUGHTER

 http://www.thepetitionsite.com/255/851/583/stop-horse-slaughter/

Horse slaughter is the torture and murder of American pets. In fact, 80% of Americans are opposed to it. Horses are considered domesticated companion animals, and have served mankind for thousands of years. They have carried us on the battlefield, plowed our fields, delivered our mail, carried us on cross-country migrations, and provided therapy for our children with disabilities. This nation was founded on horseback.

 Family walk free after serious animal abuse in Belfast, Northern Ireland.

An east Belfast father and his two sons admitted allowing a cat to be torn to shreds by dogs trained to fight. The Ulster Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (USPCA) said the savagery inflicted on innocent animals was “wickedness at its worst”.

The family avoided jail on Thursday (March 13 2014) when the men were each handed six-month suspended sentences.

Steve Asmussen and Scott Blasi Are Horseracing

Horseracing Wrongs

For four months last year, PETA had an undercover investigator working for highly successful trainer Steve Asmussen – at Churchill Downs and Saratoga Race Course, no less. What follows are some of the investigation’s highlights:

Trainer Scott Blasi, Asmussen’s top lieutenant: “Fuck these horses. These motherfuckers. They’ll fucking break your fucking heart every fucking day, these cocksuckers. There’s always something wrong with ’em.”

“You ought to see these limping motherfuckers I see this son [of] a bitch out here [Saratoga] jogging every day.”

“You could not believe how many [horses] they hurt and kill before they ever even get to the racetrack.”

Farrier working on 5-year-old Nehro, one of Asmussen’s charges: “That’s all missing! His foot is a little bitty nub. …he lost Z-bars on both feet multiple times until he had bloody holes in the bottom of his feet.”

“He doesn’t even have a pulse in this one, and…
