Some horses with equine protozoal myeloencephalitis (EPM) resolve their issues with treatment, these cases are simple. Some horses continue to have gait problems that span years, they “relapse” year after year. These are complex cases. One common strategy is to treat the EPM-suspect horse and see what [...]

Nicolas Faacci and Cheryl Heuton created a show called Num3ers in which a mathematician uses equations to help solve various crimes. The strategy can apply to equine protozoal myeloencephalitis. The show teaches obvious and not so apparent factors should be considered. EPM can be quite complicated to diagnose [...]
