Free Equine Metabolic Syndrome Webinar Jan. 25By Press Release · January 19, 2011

Equine metabolic syndrome refers to a condition in which an inappropriate insulin reaction occurs after a horse consumes carbohydrate-rich hay or feed. So how do you feed these horses without setting them up for a crisis?

That's the topic Dr. Kathleen Crandell, an equine nutritionist with Kentucky Equine Research, will tackle during a free webinar on Tuesday, January 25, at 1 p.m. Eastern U.S. time.

Dr. Crandell will review the basics of equine metabolic syndrome and its relation to insulin resistance, and will give attendees tips on managing these horses.  She will also be available to answer any questions after the presentation.
