Check your hay source if you or you clients have recently purchased alfalfa hay from North Carolina, specifically Murphy Farm Hay and Feed in Louisburg, NC and Jones Farm Hay and Feed in Middlesex, NC. Some bales have been contaminated with blister beetles, which contain cantharidin:  http://www.ncagr.gov/paffairs/release/2015/9-15-blister-beetles.htm
