EXERTIONAL RHABDOMYOLYSIS QUESTIONNAIRE
(Also known as AZOTURIA/ MONDAY MORNING DISEASE / TYING UP)
Thank you for offering to take part in this survey. Having a horse that has had Equine Rhabdomyolysis, I am sure that you appreciate how difficult if can be to identify the specific cause or causes, and therefore the most effective management of the problem to prevent further episodes. Not only is it known by many different names, but it appears to have a number of different causes.
