PSSM or polysaccharide storage myopathy is a muscle disease in horses which has become more and more common among different horse breeds im recent years. As there is no cure, we need to manage feeding and stabling routine of affected horses lifelong. I am talking with equine nutritionist Daniela Vadehra from Austria today about what PSSM is all about and what we can do when our horse is diagnosed with it.
