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, October 30, for a webinar with noted veterinarians Steve Reed and James Little about the current thoughts on EPM. EQUUS is a sister publication to Horse Journal.

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. An internist and member of the practice at Kentucky's prestigious Rood and Riddle Equine Hospital, Reed's primary research interests include equine neurologic diseases.  Little joined Bayer HealthCare Animal Health in 2014 as senior veterinarian, Technical Services. Together, they will address many facets of EPM, including etiology, symptoms, how the symptoms present themselves, diagnosis and treatment.
