The Auburn University internal medicine service can evaluate muscle diseases in your horse. The main causes of chronic “tying-up” are recurrent exertional rhabdomyolysis (RER) and polysaccharide storage myopathy (PSSM).  Genetic testing, exercise testing, muscle biopsy, and blood work are all diagnostic tests that we can perform to evaluate these conditions. We can also help you screen for other genetic muscle diseases such as HYPP or GBED (glycogen branching enzyme deficiency).
