Show Notes

Calling all horse lovers!!

Equine protozoal myelitis (EPM) is a mystery to many in the horse industry - but not to Dr. Rob Franklin!  Dr. Franklin is a board-certified equine internal medicine specialist and has worked with the world's foremost experts on EPM.  Thank goodness he joins Dr. Jen the vet and Dr. Jason Chatfield in the Chat Room to talk all about EPM: the cause, what it looks like in your horse, and what you can do to prevent it! 

Don't worry companion animal friends - Dr. Jen brings in how this is similar to Toxoplasma gondii  (the causative agent of Toxoplasmosis), so there is something in it for everyone!

There's also a bit of V's View from Vet School tucked into this episode at the 12:35 mark! Should you take a break?!  V's got a view on that!
