BE AWARE: Sycamore seeds, have been found in varying concentrations, to contain a toxin called Hypoglycin-A. Seeds are now falling, and if eaten can increase the risk of Atypical Myopathy.
Also known as ‘helicopter’ seeds they can be blown further afield, especially in strong winds, so we urge all owners to remain vigilant.
Onset of Atypical Myopathy is rapid and affects the ability of the horse’s muscles to work, including the heart, and can be fatal.
Seek urgent veterinary assistance if you are concerned about your horse.
