Abstract:  Rhabdomyolysis in equines occurs in horses due to physical overexertion or underlying pathologic myopathy. Methocarbamol is a muscle relaxant that can be used in equines to treat symptoms associated with rhabdomyolysis. Methocarbamol is available as a solution for injection but is not commercially available as an oral suspension. This article focuses on the treatment of tying-up caused by overexertion, and details the treatment of rhabdomyolysis with an oral suspension that was prepared for a veterinarian by a compounding pharmacist.
