Epilepsy, seizures in horses

Chinese herbs for epilepsy, seizures in horses.
Epilepsy: when horses cramp seizures are rare in horses, but they often come back. Injuries to the brain, worms or viruses are possible causes. What helps the animals?

The four-legged friend lies on its side, its body cramps, its eyes are rolled. Some dog owners know this terrifying sight all too well. But horses with epileptic seizures? Many riders have never heard of it.

Luckily, seizures are very rare in horses. Usually, like all large animals, they have a fairly high spasm threshold - so their muscles don't cramp as easily as those of small animals.

How does epilepsy manifest itself?
Epileptic seizures make the horse's muscles tense. This can cause the horse to fall over and kick. The eyes are rolled, the consciousness disturbed. A convulsive hyperextension of the body is also typical during a seizure, with the horse bending its head back (opisthotonus). Some horses run in a circle, whereby the movements often appear as uncoordinated as if the hindquarters were partially paralyzed. In the phase after that, which can last for different lengths (seconds to days), it is disoriented, depressed and can suffer from visual disturbances.
