Greater Dallas Council on Alcohol and Drug Abuse. (November 22, 2005). Steroids. [http://www.gdcada.org/statistics/steroids.htm]

"Veterinarians administer steroids to animals (e.g. cats, cattle, dogs, and horses) for legitimate purposes such as to promote feed efficiency, and to improve weight gain, vigor, and hair coat. They are also used in veterinary practice to treat anemia and counteract tissue breakdown during illness and trauma".
