Opossums and Raccoons are not welcome on my land. I had a POA that was a carrier of EPM. Blood work showed positive for it, but they couldn't confirm that was his actual problem because at the time all it indicated was he had been exposed to EPM. We went through with the $1500 treatment anyways because he was my heart horse and there was something wrong, we just could not figure out what it was.
Treatment would not reverse any of the tissues damaged by EPM. But it would stop and prevent It from progressing.
Sad disease. But keep the nasty little dirty animals out of your barn and you should be fine. Posted via Mobile Device
