Beyond exertional rhabdomyolysis – myopathic causes of poor performance in horses

18 Nov 2022
RVC Equine Theatre 2

As horse vets, it is sometimes easy to overlook more subtle myopathic causes of poor performance in our patients, because we disregard either non-specific disease features (such as paresis) or become overly reliant on expecting a massive rise in CK or AST. This presentation will discuss approaches to various myopathic causes of poor performance other than more classic tying up.

  • Understand that muscle diseases have a wide spectrum of clinical features that are sometimes overlooked.
  • Learn how and when to evaluate horses with a possible myopathic cause of their poor performance
  • Learn about common and rare myopathic causes of poor performance seen in UK horses.
