botox to help founder/lameness

I got my Equus magazine yesterday and there was an article about how Botox injections can help horses that are either lame or have foundered (I forget which the article said)

I forget word for word what was said but I thought it was very interesting that Botox would help to alleviate the symptoms. I believe the horses showed an improvement in their gaits.

Anyone have the magazine handy or have done research about this?

I have the magazine at home but haven't had a chance to read it yet. I love Equus for their up to date information.

botox, is a paralytic bacteria. In small doses its not toxic, generally. It is a pharamasuticlly altered form of botulism.
its also used for people who have alot of muscle spasems in their face.
