EQUUS - - Advertoria­l - By Kimberly S. Brown

NOTE: Many horse own­ers use their horses for ath­letic pur­poses, and with that in­creased stress comes ad­di­tional health prob­lems. Per­for­mance horses suf­fer from in­juries and ill­nesses that might be un­no­ticed or wouldn’t af­fect the horse if it had a less-stren­u­ous life­style. For ex­am­ple, in­for­ma­tion pre­sented at the re­cent AAEP Re­sort Sym­po­sium noted that proper di­ag­nos­tic pro­ce­dures are re­quired to de­ter­mine if a horse is lame, has a neu­ro­logic prob­lem, or both! And that some sport horses have un­di­ag­nosed neu­ro­logic deficits that ini­tially don’t af­fect their per­for­mance at the level at which they are com­pet­ing, but might cause a prob­lem at higher lev­els or as they get older. This cov­er­age for EQUUS read­ers is brought to you by Me­rial.
