I am really happy for you, having just lost one to EPM. I hope you caught it in time and Duke has no lingering after-effects. How did the vet test for the presence of protozoa? I never even thought to ask my vet that when we stopped treatment. I live in the CA high desert, and it’s extremely rare in this area.
Thanks, they ran EPM peptide, ELSA 3 way, SAG, and CRP. All were above 8 before treatment, and 2 or less after treatment. Duke has no side effects, and even competed during treatment. Mostly was cranky! I am very sorry to hear about your horse. We are guessing Duke had it for approx. a year. my vet has nothing but success with Orogin. All of his clients have remained in remission for over a year. Since EPM is common here, my vet is very quick to catch changes. I just want people to know there are alternatives to Marquis.
I have a 10 year old diagnosed with EPM through acupuncture points in the chest. Doc did a blood transfusion from good poins to the points that showed up and 2 bottles of sulfur. I am going next week to a second vet for a second look and possible blood work.Can anyone give me things to push for in my vet to check? Needing some support in any form. I never herd about this tell about a month ago and am terrified.
