It is? That's so crazy...............and the horse did what was asked of him, so not fair........and wondering and will ask vet friends....if topical Betamethasone is systemic when applied to skin?   Could be and hope that Dr is longer a trusted servant

"The spray combining gentamicin sulfate and betamethasone valerate should be used cautiously. In fact, betamethasone valerate is an upper mid-strength GC (class 3). It has a high potential for local and systemic side effects. Its use should, therefore, be short-lived in cases of severe inflammation, pruritus or pain, especially if a bacterial infection is present concomitantly."
