This is not true. The HYPP disease causes frequent and severe attacks. The attacks keep coming more frequent and more severe until the horses finally dies. BUT, as I said in my earlier post, if caught early the attacks can be controlled by a low-potassium diet and medication. The disease will never go away or be cured it will simply be on stand-by, or the amount and severity of the attacks will dramatically shrink.
