Re: Paranex-p

Hello Marian,

This product has not be discusssed in any of the major horse publications or journals so I cannot speak to its efficacy. If you come across any literature on it (other than the advertisement for the product), please let me know.

There was a recent article in The Horse about the causes of EPM and there is conjecture that it may be caused by exposure to cats. Its incidence also appears to be higher in horses that are involved in speed events. But this requires further investigation.

All the best,

Dr. Getty
