Dr, K. in your FB post the other day you mentioned  skin pinch test for dehydration and then said it would be unreliable for DSLD equine. Could you explain further, many thanks. Oh and btw Happy Birthday.

The connective tissue breakdown can be body-wide in DSLD so you will get a false positive skin pinch test.
