Research by Stephanie Valberg, D.V.M., Ph.D., and Beth Valentine, D.V.M., Ph.D., indicate that our belief in lactic acid buildup as the trigger for tie-up may be unfounded. There is research going on that will look for a genetic marker for the syndrome, and also research on treating the disorder through diet. Very interesting and fascinating stuff! Especially since much of what happens to throughbred horses, also may be predisposed to our arabian and part arabian equines.
