Need info on EPM
I am looking at a horse right now that I was told it had EPM as a yearling. He is 9 now and has been trail ridden for several years now. I was told that it was diagnosed and caught very early and they spent over 2k giving it a huge amount of the drugs that the vet said he needed. I know he has been ridden and my only concern is that can a horse that has had EPM go on to never show any signs of it if it was caught early and treated correctly???? If anyone has any opinion I welcome it since I have never really looked into it before now. Thanks so much!

My husband had horses contract EPM. When they were treated early, they were fine after. JHE

Thanks!! The horse has the same vet as I do but I was a little wearly without really knowing anything about it. It seems like most things I read have been really bad outcomes for horses with EPM. Glad to know it CAN work out!

How have you been doing? We have not chatted for so long!
