Do your horse a favor - LISTEN TO THIS PODCAST

I discovered Dr Audrey DeClue in my research on shivers (following a diagnosis), but she has so much more to offer! Her common sense, no nonsense approach is both refreshing and educational. Do your horse a favor and go back to episode 1 - listen to them all!
