Isis’ 2011 EPM episode: Picture comparison

Equine Protozoal Myeloencephalitis (EPM) is a serious equine neurological disease caused by an infestation of protozoans–either Sarcocystis neurona or Neospora hughesi. (The web site, EPM horse, has an excellent explanation of what EPM is, the life cycle of the protozoans involved, and the symptoms horses with EPM can exhibit.)

The Pathogenes’ webinar, “A Novel Strategy for Treatment and Protection against EPM,” provides a good overview of EPM, existing treatments, and the new treatment Pathogenes is making available, Oroquin-10.

Isis responded very well to Pathogene’s Oroquin-10 treatment. I never would have learned about Pathogenes and Oroquin-10 from the EPM Horse web site.

This series of pictures shows how she looked over the course of the summer:
