Ep. 116: Equine Degenerative Myeloencephalopathy (EDM)

by | Sep 7, 2023 | Disease Du Jour

Most veterinarians have heard about equine degenerative myeloencephalopathy (EDM). However, Emilie Setlakwe, DVM, DACVIM, MS, clues her fellow practitioners into what might be a previously unrecognized form of EDM in this episode.

“The type of EDM I talk about is different,” said Setlakwe. “For the last 10 years, there has been a resurgence of this disease. But it is different from the one in young horses with low vitamin E levels. These horses have cerebral signs.”

“Disease Du Jour” is brought to you in 2023 by Merck Animal Health.
