Rise in cases of Atypical Myopathy warning for horse owners.


There has been a sharp rise in the number of horses who have died from Atypical Myopathy in the UK recently with cases reported in England, Wales and Northern Ireland.

Vets still don't know as much as they would like to about this disease (we first wrote about it back in 2010) but it is now thought to be caused by the neurotoxins in the seeds from sycamore trees, which ingested whilst grazing, attack the horse's central nervous system with devastating effect. Atypical Myopathy strikes grazing horses in Spring and Autumn but this sudden rise in fatal cases is being attributed to a particularly warm summer followed by recent high winds.

Symptoms to look out for are a depressed demeanour, laboured breathing, shivering, twitching, sweating, an inability to stand and dark, reddish/muddy coloured urine, (some owners have reported that to begin with they thought their horse had Colic.)

If you think your horse is displaying any of these signs then it is imperative that you contact your vet immediately. And as a preventative measure it's probably best to inspect fields to check sycamore seeds and leaves haven't blown in from nearby trees and remove horses and ponies from pasture where sycamore seeds and leaves have fallen until you can fence these areas off.
