Beat Botulism

Botulism is caused by toxins produced by Clostridium botulinum, a bacterial organism. Botulism toxin is the most deadly toxin in the world. An affected horse suffers generalized progressive weakness and, in severe cases, paralysis of the muscles, including those that control movement and breathing.

 
Botulism is largely avoidable, but should your horse encounter this disease, immediate veterinary treatment could save his life. Recognizing early clinical signs of botulism can be the key to reducing the risk of a fatal event. 
 
This free report is an in-depth look at botulism, from the multiple possible causes to clinical signs, diagnosis, treatment and prevention, with insights from many respected veterinarians on the severity of the disease and the Clostridium botulinum toxin.
