BACKGROUND Idiopathic headshaking (HSK) in horses is a distressing disorder in which the etiology and pathophysiology are unknown. HYPOTHESIS Differences in sensory function of the trigeminal nerve exist between healthy and affected horses. ANIMALS Six healthy mature geldings and 6 mature geldings with idiopathic HSK. METHODS Prospective study. Sensory nerve action and somatosensory evoked potentials studies were performed. The stimulus site comprised the gingival mucosa dorsal to the… CONTINUE READING
