Equine protozoal myeloencephalitis (EPM) is a neurologic disease caused by a parasite that attacks the brain and spinal cord of horses. The parasite, Sarcocystis neruona, can seriously damage a horse’s central nervous system leading to short- or long-term damage and even death if not caught and treated early.
