Sign of Equine Neurological Disorders

The most common neurological problems in horses are EPM, wobbler syndrome, viral diseases and degenerative conditions such as EDM, which has been linked to vitamin E deficiencies in young horses. Sign of a neurological problem include:

  • Usually gait, may include staggering
  • Toe dragging or frequent stumbling
  • Asymmetrical loss of muscle mass
  • Muscle weakness and incoordination

University Study at University of California at Davis

Platinum Performance® client since 2013

“Two Carrot Diamond ‘Whoda’ is an 18hh Irish Draught and has a very weak immune system. If it is out there, Whoda will catch it. He had EPM last year and Lymes this year with a host of other minor issues in-between. Lab work indicated some immune issues. At the time my trainer and veternarian recommended Platinum. In his 18 months on Platinum, we’ve seen a tremendous improvement in his feet, tolerance for season changes and weight management. Thanks for a palatable and effective product. My three horses are all on Platinum.”
