An interview with equine neurologist and Wobblers Syndrome recognized expert Stephen M. Reed is presented. When asked about how to distinguish symptoms of the Wobblers Syndrome, he refers to all conditions that can make a horse walk with a wobbling gait. Reed explains that neurological examination is the first thing in diagnosing and the key is to arrive at an anatomic localization. He infers that there are works that are still going on to develop vaccines and to prevent diseases.
