Good episode? Give it some love!
Few horses are lucky enough to have constant, year-round access to fresh, green grass, which provides the best natural source of vitamin E. This powerful antioxidant supports muscle and nerve health. Is your horse getting enough? Join our host, Michelle Anderson, as she interviews Dr. Carrie Finno. You'll learn about horses' vitamin E requirements, signs of a vitamin E deficiency, and how natural sources of vitamin E compare to synthetic vitamin E. 

This event is brought to you by Kentucky Performance Products.

Dr. Finno is an equine internist who serves as associate professor in veterinary genetics and the Gregory L. Ferraro Endowed Director of the Center for Equine Health at the University of California, Davis (UC Davis). She received her veterinary degree from the University of Minnesota in 2004 and then completed a three-year residency in large animal internal medicine at UC Davis. She elected to pursue a career in translational genetic research, with a strong focus on inherited neuromuscular diseases. Her research studies the interaction of vitamin E and neural development in a naturally occurring disease in the horse and using a well-established mouse model.
