Dr. Travis Kelter wrapped up our Virtual Lecture by presenting on an issue we are seeing more and more in horses - Equine Metabolic Syndrome (EMS).
EMS is a characteristic collection of clinical signs in horses that put them at high risk for developing laminitis. A key feature of EMS is insulin dysregulation and results from interaction between genetics and environment. Risk factors also include abnormal fat distribution, predisposition to weight gain and resistance to weight loss, among others.
Dr. Kelter's presentation walks horse owner's through the many layers of EMS - insulin dysregulation, obesity, the clinical signs, consequences of unregulated EMS, breed dispositions and genetics, as well as dietary management and medication available.
