FEI's prohibited substances

If you are competing under FEI rules, the active compound in Devils Claw, Harpagoside, has now been moved on to the FEI controlled medication list.  Riders and owners are being urged to check all their supplements properly so they don’t find themselves potentially using prohibited substances without even being aware.

Vetrofen Healthy and Vetrofen Intense offer a safe (clear to use under FEI rules) and effective alternative to any Devils Claw products, as well as being amazing value.


Vetrofen Intense contains a completely natural antioxidant blend that targets both comfort and recovery in all horses.  It has been scientifically formulated to help horses and ponies when they require support in dealing with intense activity, the natural ageing process and recovery after exercise.  Vetrofen Intense supports the body’s inflammatory response to aid recovery to short term problems such as bruising, strains or injury as well as supporting function and flexibility in joints, muscles, ligaments and tendons, all of which can detract from performance.


Vetrofen Healthy is a new everyday value supplement which is designed to give everyday support and improved comfort and mobility in active or ageing horses.  The supplement helps to provide additional antioxidant nutrients to support the body’s own inflammatory response mechanisms, as well as provide comfort and greater flexibility in joints, muscles, ligaments and tendons.  The concentrated and varied antioxidant profile of Vetrofen Healthy works to promote overall wellbeing and quality of life for your horse, representing a unique and proven approach to managing comfort and recovery.

Both the products have been scientifically formulated to help, support and enhance your horse’s performance, whether at competitions or simply enjoyment at home.
