I have no clue. My farrier was out last week and she didn't have any issues holding her feet up...or herself for that matter. He watched her walk and he said he thinks she may have pulled a muscle (since all this started about two days after we turned her out with the other two). I can't get my vet to come look at her again until the marquis treatment is done and I litterally can't afford to call in a different one at this point so......we are kind of stuck

UPDATE:

Ember got her final dose of Marquis Wednesday morning. Throughout the course of the treatment she did not get any worse or any better. She never showed any other symptoms besides the dragging of her back toes. She is still doing this and and is no worse or better. I spoke to the vet and he told me that since she did not get any worse or better "that is a good thing" and there is a very small chance she will ever relapse.

I have done quite a bit of research on EPM since the first horse we had was originally diagnosed. I have read that 30% of horses who have had the disease and survive end up relapsing and now my vet is telling me that mine has a very small chance of doing so?

I am so......frustrated with the whole situation. My filly has shown NO OTHER signs of EPM besides dragging her back toes and that has not changed at all...sometimes she does, sometimes she doesnt drag. She has not had any muscle atrophy, she is urinating fine, there is no wobble and other then the dragging, she seems to know where her back end is at all times (still running with the other horses through the pasture and she had no issues standing for the farrier). I am feeling like this may have been a misdiagnosis of epm and we have paid for all of this treatment for nothing and our vet is basically to lazy to find out what is really wrong.

So now I suppose we just sit and wait and watch her carefully to make sure she doesnt drop dead...apparently she has to in order to get a vets full attention these days.
