As part of our ongoing research on Shivers, it is necessary that owners submit videos of their horses in addition tothe survey. Videos MUST be in a standard DVD format and be in the highest quality possible. This is necessary to make an accurate diagnosis of whether or not a horse has Shivers. Videos must be sent via standard mail. In return, you will receive a veterinary diagnosis within 3 weeks of our receipt of your survey AND video.
The video mustfollow this format:
1. Start with horse on a hard, flat surface
2. Horse must be shown from each side walking forward a distance of approximately 50 feet
3. Horse must then be shown backing up for a distance of approximately 50 feet 4. Each of the horse’s legs must be picked up and held for approximately 30 seconds
Make sure the horse’s entire body is visible at all times and that muscle abnormalities, such as twitching, are shown close up.
