muscle disorders in horses

Horses are one of the most beautiful creatures in the whole world and taking care of them comes with a huge responsibility. Muscular disorders like myopathies are most common among the horses and it can lead towards the decreased performance of your horse. Your horse can present with the various sign and symptoms of these muscular disorders. These sign and symptoms can be muscle pain or cramping, exercise intolerance, muscle weakness and stiffness. Supplementation and other management procedures are typically required to get rid your horse out of these problems. There are the three most common types of myopathies that you can encounter in your life as a horse owner. These are rhabdomyolysis (RER), PSSM and HYPP. Rhabdomyolysis is characterized by contracture formation due to breakdown of muscular tissue while recurrent exertional rhabdomyolysis occurs in athlete horses and causes muscle cramping and muscular spasms.

Best way to deal with this muscle cramping and muscular spasms issues are the supplements provision. The highly effective research proven supplements are. omega- 3 fatty acids, antioxidants, vitamins and trace minerals. Similarly, the quantity of salt in the horse body equally matters as myopathies can be developed by electrolyte imbalance. In the same manner supplementation with minerals like Magnesium, calcium and phosphorus are extremely effective to improve muscle function. Muscle spasms that can typically occur in rhabdomyolysis can be caused by lack of magnesium in the diet. Hence supplementation with magnesium can have numerous benefits. There are other supplements like Calcium, Selenium and vitamin E, these are the antioxidants that help int the prevention of oxidative damage to the muscles and other tissues.

Another myopathy is Polysaccharide storage myopathy that is basically a glycogen storage disease of the muscle. It occurs due to excessive conversion of glucose into glycogen and that typically result in contractile filament damage. The best treatment option for polysaccharide storage myopathy us supplementation of fat with forage-based, low-starch and low-sugar diet as fats are the alternative energy sources. There is another disorder named as Hyperkalaemia periodic paralysis, it is basically an inherited disease of the muscle that typically results due to point mutation in the sodium channel gene in the muscle of affected horses. This mutation basically results in the persistent depolarization of muscle cells and causes temporary weakness. Supplementation is a key to overcome this myopathy. Following supplements can be used such as adequate vitamin E, selenium and balanced minerals, as well as plain white salt omega-3 fatty acid, antioxidant, vitamin and mineral supplement.
