    Default Failure to Dom

    It's also interesting that your first post and your diction are a little familiar. I'm having a very difficult time believing that an epidemiological expert would have this "science be damned" attitude, not to mention the naive tone of your posts doesn't jive with who you claim to be.
    The lady is nuts. Her horse didn't make it. She's a scam and does this stuff often. Just ignore any of her remarks!~

    I feel so sorry for anyone who has posted after the OP. She does not have a PhD. She has been pushed away from the area we live because she has lied, stolen and cheated for things!! Steer clear of her and her farm! I'm very pleased that people were able to see through her!

    A rescue I donate to had a mare with EPM and was approached to be in this trial. It was expensive and didn't work and the mare was ultimately euthed. I have no opinion about the OP.

    Don't know about the op but i know 3 horses, 2 of my own that went through this trial. Not expensive compared to the 3 months of Marquis I used on the one and 6 months of sulfa cocktail. 150 is not a lot IMO when Marquis I paid 800 a month for. Marque did not work but this drug helped all 3 of these horses. The one that I did Marquis on had to be retired because of epm and now can be ridden again and the other 2 ate in work and doing good. No idea who op is just wanted to say that it helped the 3 I know that used it.

    Who, me?? Nuts, I may be, but my EPM horse responded beautifully to Marquis + DMSO + boatloads of nursing, supportive care.

    Well, since we're back on this topic, I've asked and asked and no one will answer, so here goes again. Rabicon, you say you have a horse you retired due to EPM. I'm guessing that means the horse was not neurologically "competent" for riding.
    1. How did you know the horse still had an active EPM infection and wasn't simply dealing with residual damage to neural tissues? And,
    2. Lingering, but active, infection left untreated during the horse's retirement would certainly result in damage to tissues, which leads me to the question no one has been able to answer: How does Oroquin-10 (or Orogin) reverse nerve/brain damage? THIS is something we all need to know. You had a neurologic horse, that had been so long enough to be beyond healing, revert to normal and rideable after using Oroquin-10? I have significant nerve damage myself in one leg. Will it help me?

    Is it more likely that maybe the stimulant effects of levamisole make some horses just FEEL better and cope better with whatever it is that makes them NQR? I don't know. But I think any number of things are more likely than an antibiotic/immune stimulant combination drug reversing nerve and brain damage that would otherwise prove permanent.

    A sound horse with normal neurological exam are not the expected result of successful EPM treatment. It's sad, but oftentimes in the brain and nerves, damage done is damage done. MANY horses have "recovered" from EPM, but will live with neurological deficits to one degree or another depending on many variables. Failure of a horse's neurological systems to regenerate is not tied to drug failure, but to stark reality.
