Re: "Atrophy" in hind end possibly EPSM
If the horse's problem is indeed carbohydrate related, get a copy of the
article from the most recent issue of the Journal of the American Veterinary
Association (1998;212:1588-1593) which describes a study in which horses
who had a history of
exertional rhabdomyolysis were put on a low carbo, high fat diet and this
diet was evidently very effective. Examples of the diets were included in the
article. the title is 'Dietary Control of Exertional Rhabdomyolysis in Horses'
and the first author is Beth A. Valentine, DVM, PhD. good luck -Amy
