Kellon's DSLD/ESPA Study info and Treatment Study Form
Signs of disease:
"There is NO other condition that causes enlargements and dropping of
the fetlocks either fronts, rears or both - than DSLD - those signs
are what we term as pathognomonic for DSLD - i.e. when you have those
signs you have THAT disease"- Dr. Mero
Definition of Pathognomic- A sign or symptom that is so characteristic of a disease that it makes the diagnosis.
Research findings by Dr Halper:
"Degenerative suspensory ligament desmitis as a systemic disorder
characterized by malformed proteoglycan decorin accumulation."
We do not recommend riding or breeding DSLD/ESPA affected horses.
