So your horse has just been diagnosed with equine protozoal myeloencephalitis (EPM). What next? Join Bayer HealthCare and EQUUS Magazine at 8 p.m. Eastern time on Thursday, Oct. 30, for a webinar with noted veterinarians Steve Reed and James Little about the current thoughts on EPM.
A progressive, degenerative neurological disease of the central nervous system, EPM is one of the most common neurological disorders of horses in the United States. Yet it can be difficult to diagnose definitively and is often confused with other diseases or health problems unrelated to infectious disease.
Drs. Reed and Little will offer a clinician's perspective of the challenges posed by EPM.
