Sycamore related atypical myopathy - information for donkey owners

Atypical myopathy (AM) is a potentially fatal metabolic disease affecting the muscles. Cases have only been reported in horses so far but donkeys could also be affected. The disease has been reported in the UK, Northern Europe and North America. In Europe it is thought to be caused by a toxin in the 'helicopter' like seeds from the sycamore (Acer pseudoplatanus) whereas in the USA, seeds from the box elder (Acer negundo) have been implicated.
