An anterior pituitary hormone that stimulates the ADRENAL CORTEX and its production of CORTICOSTEROIDS. ACTH is a 39-amino acid polypeptide of which the N-terminal 24-amino acid segment is identical in all species and contains the adrenocorticotrophic activity. Upon further tissue-specific processing, ACTH can yield ALPHA-MSH and corticotrophin-like intermediate lobe peptide (CLIP).
Neoplasms which arise from or metastasize to the PITUITARY GLAND. The majority of pituitary neoplasms are adenomas, which are divided into non-secreting and secreting forms. Hormone producing forms are further classified by the type of hormone they secrete. Pituitary adenomas may also be characterized by their staining properties (see ADENOMA, BASOPHIL; ADENOMA, ACIDOPHIL; and ADENOMA, CHROMOPHOBE). Pituitary tumors may compress adjacent structures, including the HYPOTHALAMUS, several CRANIAL NERVES, and the OPTIC CHIASM. Chiasmal compression may result in bitemporal HEMIANOPSIA.

Fusariotoxicosis from barley in British Columbia. I. Natural occurrence and diagnosis. (1/1799)

Clinical sickness was observed in domestic ducks, geese, horses and swine during October 1973. All species showed upper alimentary distress with mortalities occurring in the geese. Barley derived from a common source had been fed. Examination of the barley revealed invasion by Fusarium spp and detection of a high level of dermatitic fusariotoxins.  (+info)

Urethrorectal fistula in a horse. (2/1799)

Anomalies of the urethra are uncommon. Urethrorectal fistula in horses has only been reported in foals and only in conjunction with other congenital anomalies. This report describes the diagnosis, surgical management, and possible etiologies of a unique case of urethrorectal fistula in a mature gelding.  (+info)

Mediators of anaphylaxis but not activated neutrophils augment cholinergic responses of equine small airways. (3/1799)

Neutrophilic inflammation in small airways (SA) and bronchospasm mediated via muscarinic receptors are features of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease in horses (COPD). Histamine, serotonin, and leukotrienes (LTs) are reported to be involved in the exacerbation of COPD, and currently, histamine has been shown to increase tension response to electrical field simulation (EFS) in equine SA. We tested the effects of these mediators and the effects of activated neutrophils on the cholinergic responses in SA. Histamine, serotonin, and LTD4 had a synergistic effect on EFS responses and only an additive effect on the tension response to exogenous ACh or methacholine. Atropine and TTX entirely eliminated the EFS-induced tension response in the presence of all three inflammatory mediators, indicating that augmentation of the EFS response applies only to the endogenous cholinergic response. Neutrophils isolated from control and COPD-affected horses were activated by zymosan, producing 18.1 +/- 2.3 and 25.0 +/- 2.3 nmol superoxide. 10(6) cells-1. 30 min-1, respectively. However, in contrast to the profound effect of mediators, incubation of SA for over 1 h in a suspension of up to 30 x 10(6) zymosan-treated neutrophils/ml did not significantly affect EFS responses of SA isolated from either control or COPD-affected horses. We conclude that in equine SA 1) the endogenous cholinergic responses are subject to strong facilitation by inflammatory mediators; 2) activated neutrophils do not affect cholinergic responses in SA; and 3) in acute bouts of equine COPD, histamine, LTD4, and serotonin (mediators primarily associated with type I allergic reaction) rather than mediators derived from neutrophils most likely contribute to increased cholinergic airway tone.  (+info)

Ballistic shock wave lithotripsy in an 18-year-old thoroughbred gelding. (4/1799)

Prolonged postoperative recuperation time and restricted exercise were circumvented by using ballistic shock wave lithotripsy to break up an 8-cm diameter vesical calculus and by flushing out the sand-like residue under epidural anesthesia with the horse standing. Recovery was uneventful.  (+info)

Amylopectinosis in fetal and neonatal Quarter Horses. (5/1799)

Three Quarter Horses, a stillborn filly (horse No. 1), a female fetus aborted at approximately 6 months of gestation (horse No. 2), and a 1-month-old colt that had been weak at birth (horse No. 3), had myopathy characterized histologically by large spherical or ovoid inclusions in skeletal and cardiac myofibers. Smaller inclusions were also found in brain and spinal cord and in some cells of all other tissues examined. These inclusions were basophilic, red-purple after staining with periodic acid-Schiff (both before and after digestion with diastase), and moderately dark blue after staining with toluidine blue. The inclusions did not react when stained with Congo red. Staining with iodine ranged from pale blue to black. Their ultrastructural appearance varied from amorphous to somewhat filamentous. On the basis of staining characteristics and diastase resistance, we concluded that these inclusions contained amylopectin. A distinctly different kind of inclusion material was also present in skeletal muscle and tongue of horse Nos. 1 and 3. These inclusions were crystalline with a sharply defined ultrastructural periodicity. The crystals were eosinophilic and very dark blue when stained with toluidine blue but did not stain with iodine. Crystals sometimes occurred freely within the myofibers but more often were encased by deposits of amylopectin. This combination of histologic and ultrastructural features characterizes a previously unreported storage disease in fetal and neonatal Quarter Horses, with findings similar to those of glycogen storage disease type IV. We speculate that a severe inherited loss of glycogen brancher enzyme activity may be responsible for these findings. The relation of amylopectinosis to the death of the foals is unknown.  (+info)

Genetic divergence with emergence of novel phenotypic variants of equine arteritis virus during persistent infection of stallions. (6/1799)

The persistently infected carrier stallion is the critical natural reservoir of equine arteritis virus (EAV), as venereal infection of mares frequently occurs after breeding to such stallions. Two Thoroughbred stallions that were infected during the 1984 outbreak of equine viral arteritis in central Kentucky subsequently became long-term EAV carriers. EAV genomes amplified from the semen of these two stallions were compared by sequence analysis of the six 3' open reading frames (ORFs 2 through 7), which encode the four known structural proteins and two uncharacterized glycoproteins. The major variants of the EAV population that sequentially arose within the reproductive tract of each carrier stallion varied by approximately 1% per year, and the heterogeneity of the viral quasispecies increased during the course of long-term persistent infection. The various ORFs of the dominant EAV variants evolved independently, and there was apparently strong selective pressure on the uncharacterized GP3 protein during persistent infection. Amino acid changes also occurred in the V1 variable region of the GL protein. This region has been previously identified as a crucial neutralization domain, and selective pressures exerted on the V1 region during persistent EAV infection led to the emergence of virus variants with distinct neutralization properties. Thus, evolution of the EAV quasispecies that occurs during persistent infection of the stallion clearly can influence viral phenotypic properties such as neutralization and perhaps virulence.  (+info)

Genetic and phenotypic changes accompanying the emergence of epizootic subtype IC Venezuelan equine encephalitis viruses from an enzootic subtype ID progenitor. (7/1799)

Recent studies have indicated that epizootic Venezuelan equine encephalitis (VEE) viruses can evolve from enzootic, subtype ID strains that circulate continuously in lowland tropical forests (A. M. Powers, M. S. Oberste, A. C. Brault, R. Rico-Hesse, S. M. Schmura, J. F. Smith, W. Kang, W. P. Sweeney, and S. C. Weaver, J. Virol. 71:6697-6705, 1997). To identify mutations associated with the phenotypic changes leading to epizootics, we sequenced the entire genomes of two subtype IC epizootic VEE virus strains isolated during a 1992-1993 Venezuelan outbreak and four sympatric, subtype ID enzootic strains closely related to the predicted epizootic progenitor. Analysis by maximum-parsimony phylogenetic methods revealed 25 nucleotide differences which were predicted to have accompanied the 1992 epizootic emergence; 7 of these encoded amino acid changes in the nsP1, nsP3, capsid, and E2 envelope glycoprotein, and 2 were mutations in the 3' untranslated genome region. Comparisons with the genomic sequences of IAB and other IC epizootic VEE virus strains revealed that only one of the seven amino acid changes associated with the 1992 emergence, a threonine-to-methionine change at position 360 of the nsP3 protein, accompanied another VEE virus emergence event. Two changes in the E2 envelope glycoprotein region believed to include the major antigenic determinants, both involving replacement of uncharged residues with arginine, are also candidates for epizootic determinants.  (+info)

SFS, a novel fibronectin-binding protein from Streptococcus equi, inhibits the binding between fibronectin and collagen. (8/1799)

The obligate parasitic bacterium Streptococcus equi subsp. equi is the causative agent of strangles, a serious disease of the upper respiratory tract in horses. In this study we have, using shotgun phage display, cloned from S. equi subsp. equi and characterized a gene, called sfs, encoding a protein termed SFS, representing a new type of fibronectin (Fn)-binding protein. The sfs gene was found to be present in all 50 isolates of S. equi subsp. equi tested and in 41 of 48 S. equi subsp. zooepidemicus isolates tested. The sfs gene is down-regulated during growth in vitro compared to fnz, a previously characterized gene encoding an Fn-binding protein from S. equi subsp. zooepidemicus. Sequence comparisons revealed no similarities to previously characterized Fn-binding proteins, but high scores were obtained against collagen. Besides similarity due to the high content of glycine, serine, and proline residues present in both proteins, there was a nine-residue motif present both in collagen and in the Fn-binding domain of SFS. By searching the Oklahoma S. pyogenes database, we found that this motif is also present in a potential cell surface protein from S. pyogenes. Protein SFS was found to inhibit the binding between Fn and collagen in a concentration-dependent way.  (+info)

BACKGROUND: The catalog of genetic variants in the horse genome originates from a few select animals, the majority originating from the Thoroughbred mare used for the equine genome sequencing project. The purpose of this study was to identify genetic variants, including single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs), insertion/deletion polymorphisms (INDELs), and copy number variants (CNVs) in the genome of an individual Quarter Horse mare sequenced by next-generation sequencing. RESULTS: Using massively parallel paired-end sequencing, we generated 59.6 Gb of DNA sequence from a Quarter Horse mare resulting in an average of 24.7X sequence coverage. Reads were mapped to approximately 97% of the reference Thoroughbred genome. Unmapped reads were de novo assembled resulting in 19.1 Mb of new genomic sequence in the horse. Using a stringent filtering method, we identified 3.1 million SNPs, 193 thousand INDELs, and 282 CNVs. Genetic variants were annotated to determine their impact on gene structure and ...

Of the 70 samples, 28 (40.0%) and 17 (24.3%) samples were positive for B. equi infection and B. caballi infection, respectively. In addition, 11 (15.7%) samples were positive for both ...
Introduction. Equine piroplasmosis is a protozoan disease caused by two agents in Brazil: Babesia caballi and Theileria equi (BARBOSA et. al., 1995; HEUCHERT et al., 1999; KERBER et al., 1999, CANOLA et al., 2007; HEIM et al. 2007; BALDANI et al., 2008). The severity of clinical signs is variable, and in many cases spontaneous recovery may occur without obvious clinical signs. This is especially true in endemic areas where foals become infected while they are protected by maternal antibodies and other non- specific factors, which render them partially resistant to challenge (RIBEIRO et al.,1995). Maternal antibodies are usually undetectable 3 to 5 months after birth (ALLSOPP et al., 2007; KUMAR et al., 2008). Therefore, foals undergo a non-apparent infection but there is some evidence that stress factors may lead to relapsing clinical episodes later in life (DE WAAL, 1995; FRIEDHOFF, 1988).. Equine piroplasmosis is an important disease of equids and it has a specific impact on international ...
Equine piroplasmosis is caused by the intracellular, haemoprotozoan parasites Theileria equi (formerly known as as Babesia equi, Mehlhorn and Schein, 1998) and Babesia caballi, which are transmitted by ticks of several genera including Boophilus, Hyalomma, Dermacentor and Rhipicephalus. The disease is found in many tropical and subtropical areas. Clinical manifestation of the disease is variable and often includes icterus (jaundice), haemoglobinuria and fever. Both chronic and acute infection can occur. Sub-clinical infected animals are of major concern, as they can be carriers of the organism. The geographic movement of presumably healthy horses may aid in the spread of piroplasmosis. In addition to the fact that sub-clinical piroplasmosis may negatively affect the animals performance, it has been shown that strenuous exercise, such as that experienced in horse racing, can cause sub-clinical infections to become acute (Hailat et al., 1997). Thus there is a real need for the diagnosis of both ...
Serum specimens from 12 sick and 20 normal horses were examined for levels of different classes of immunoglobulin (Ig) by a single radial immunodiffusion. The level of IgA in the sera of sick horses was about 50% lower than in the sera of normal horses. By contrast, the level of serum IgG was higher in sick than in normal horses. Phytohemagglutinin (PHA) responsiveness of blood lymphocytes showed transient suppression during the stage of severe diarrhea. The regaining of PHA responsiveness of lymphocytes was observed simultaneously with the recovery process. However, the responsiveness of lymphocytes in recovered horses was still markedly lower than in normal horses. Allergic reactions in sick and normal horses were studied by observing dermal response to the injections of saline extracts from some of the horse feeds. A delayed hypersensitivity reaction to streptokinase-streptodornase and PHA was also studied. The allergic reactions to these extracts were not induced in either sick or normal ...
Two recent studies by Veterinary Genetics Laboratory researchers and collaborators investigated equine recurrent uveitis (ERU) risk factors and genetic loci of interest in Appaloosas, including leopard complex (LP) and Appaloosa pattern-1 (PATN1), finding evidence that LP has an additive effect on ERU risk.
Infection with A. phagocytophilumis a tick-borne infectious disease spread by Ixodes species ticks. This infection often occurs from spring through fall due to increased tick activity during this time of year. Illness usually occurs shortly after the tick bite. Affected horses may suddenly show signs such as appetite loss, fever, lethargy (tiredness), reluctance to move, and fluid accumulation on the lower limbs, which indent when pressed with a finger. Affected horses often develop a fever of 103°F or higher (normal temperature range for adult horses: 99°F to 101.5°F). If your horse suddenly develops these signs, it is important to contact your veterinarian. Usually, only one horse on a property is infected with A. phagocytophilum; however, multiple horses on one property are occasionally affected.. Read More ...

It doesnt slow them down really but they cant grab pieces and throw them the way they would if you just had a bale ring on it. I had 5 horses on it last year and 4 this year and they are all very content to eat this way. They bicker more with each other when they are grazing in the summer then they do with the feeder out there. ( they have 15 acres available at that point) My horses are eating 2nd cutting timothy/clover and get no grain at all since eating is all they do in the winter. yes, my little paint mare gets chunky but works her butt off in the summer and starts out with a nice figure in the fall. No one has colicked doing this and I have fed them round bales free choice for the last 12 years. The bale buddy keeps the hay from blowing away in high winds, keeps it dry in the rain and I have always figured 5 days for 4 horses on the bale 24/7 in the winter. I love the ease of putting hay up and feeding it this way ...
Cerebellar abiotrophy (CA) is a rare but significant disease in Arabian horses caused by progressive death of the Purkinje cells resulting in cerebellar ataxia characterized by a typical head tremor, jerky head movements and lack of menace response. The specific role of magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) to support clinical diagnosis has been discussed. However, as yet MR imaging has only been described in one equine CA case. The role of MR morphometry in this regard is currently unknown. Due to the hereditary nature of the disease, genetic testing can support the diagnosis of CA. Therefore, the objective of this study was to perform MR morphometric analysis and genetic testing in four CA-affected Arabian horses and one German Riding Pony with purebred Arabian bloodlines in the third generation. CA was diagnosed pathohistologically in the five affected horses (2 months - 3 years) supported by clinical signs, necropsy, and genetic testing which confirmed the TOE1:g.2171G|A SNP genotype A/A in all CA
Heaves is a respiratory disease of horses 6 years of age or older, characterized by difficultybreathing, chronic coughing, abnormal lung sounds and decreased exercise tolerance. These signs manifest themselves as a result of narrowing of the small airways of the lungs. This narrowing is caused by inflammation and thickening of the lung tissues, constriction of the smooth muscles surrounding the lungs and accumulation of mucous and exudate within the lumens of the lungs. The end result is known as emphysema or a trapping of air in the lungs.. With the narrowing of the small airways of the lungs, horses with heaves experience difficulty pulling air into the lungs as well as pushing the air out again. As the condition worsens, severely affected horses are seen to contract the muscles of the abdominal wall during the last phase of exhalation, causing the floor of the abdominal wall to lift up at the very end of exhalation. As a result, the lungs tend to remain over-inflated causing a condition ...

The foal had tachycardia (120 beats/min), tachypnea (40breaths/min). Blood samples obtained for haematologic and serum biochemistry analysis that showed a PCVof 30% and a TPP of 70 g/L. The peritoneal fluid analysis revealed a clear fluid with mild elevation of totalprotein. The early treatment involved intravenous administration of a balanced electrolyte solution andanalgesics. The signs of abdominal pain were progressive and nonresponsive to treatments. Therefore,exploratory laparatomy was elected. During the exploratory laparatomy a faecalith impaction of small colonwas detected. The mass was manipulated, macerated and milked toward the rectum and anus. It was finallyremoved via the anus without enterotomy incision. Midline incision and skin incision were sutured routinely.The foal made an uneventful recovery
While the American Quarter Horse Association (AQHA) recognizes the therapeutic benefits of the drug furosemide, commonly known as Lasix, to help mitigate the occurrence of exercise-induced pulmonary hemorrhage (EIPH) in racehorses, the AQHA executive committee recently asked the AQHA Animal Welfare Commission to review the proposed prohibition of Lasix for show horses, set to be effective as of Jan. 1, 2018.. Balancing the use of therapeutic medication for the welfare of the horse in different types of competition, such as racing and showing, while minimizing or eliminating performance-enhancing properties of medication compounds has been a challenge in the equine industry. Lasix has been endorsed by several equine groups and the American Association of Equine Practitioners to lessen the occurrence of EIPH in racehorses. Consistent with such groups, the AQHA opposed the latest version of the newly introduced Horseracing Integrity Act of 2017, which would eliminate all race-day medications, ...
RAO, formerly known as COPD or Heaves, is often caused by allergies to molds & pollens, and usually can be managed by a dust-free diet and medication.
It would have been nice to finish with a bang, said Molnar, who competed aboard Rebel, a 20-year-old Quarter Horse gelding and cattle penning veteran. But we got er done, and thats what counts.. Thorlakson, who had no Stampede titles to her credit on Canada Day 2009, now has three. She was the only two-time cattle penning champion at the 09 Stampede, as a member of the winning 10 Class and 7 Class teams. And its an eight-year-old quarter horse gelding known as Docs Little Sky, whom she affectionately calls Little Man, whos carried her to victory all three times.. This feels pretty awesome. Its pretty exciting, she said. I had really good luck last year, but we definitely had to earn it today.. Team Cattle Penning, a race against the clock, gives a team of three riders on horseback 60 seconds to separate three specifically identified cattle from a herd of 30 and direct them into a 16-foot-by-24-foot pen at the opposite end of the arena. Teamwork is key, with all three riders working ...

Coronaviruslike viruses previously have been identified in feces of diarrheic foals and adult horses (1, 7, 8, 13, 17). In the present study, a coronavirus associated with diarrhea in a young foal was serially propagated in cell culture and partially characterized. The virus was identified as a coronavirus based on (i) virion size and morphology, (ii) antigenic relatedness to BCV and HEV as determined by serological procedures, and (iii) genetic relatedness to BCV, HCV strain OC43, and MHV as determined by N gene sequence analysis. The virus tentatively is identified as equine coronavirus (ECV) based on the origin of the virus.. The coronavirus N protein has been shown to be highly variable in amino acid composition between the viruses that comprise the three coronavirus antigenic groups but highly conserved within these groups (27, 30). In the present study, a high degree of identity (66.7 to 90.1%) was observed between the N protein sequences of ECV strain NC99 and N protein sequences of group ...
Email. The lives and racing careers of Headturner and Jumpn Beduino will forever be linked. First, the 3-year-old Quarter Horse half-siblings are out of the same dam, Imjumpn. Furthermore, they seem to peak on the racetrack at the same time. Jumpn Beduino and Headturner were first and second in the Pacific Coast Quarter Horse Racing Association Futurity at Los Alamitos last October. Last weekend, they both won major derbies. Headturner, a gelding by Check Him Out, won Friday s $214,400 El Primero Del Ano Derby. The following night, Jumpn Beduino, a filly by Chicks Beduino, won the $175,500 La Primera Del Ano Derby for fillies. Both started from post 9. What are the chances of that happening, said Theresa DeNike, who co-owns Jumpn Beduino with her husband, Ed. A brother and sister winning derbies on back-to-back nights and from the same post position. While it may seem illogical for half-siblings to be the same age, Quarter Horse breeders are allowed to register more than one foal from a mare ...
Equine asthma (also previously known as heaves, recurrent airway obstruction and COPD) is a significant problem with limited treatment options. This chronic allergic respiratory condition is diagnosed in all breeds and reportedly affects between 10 and 20 percent of adult horses. Common symptoms include recurrent cough, labored breathing and exercise intolerance. Researchers noted increased levels of a specific protein in airway samples of horses with asthma when compared to healthy horses. In this study, the team will investigate if targeting this novel protein is a viable new therapeutic strategy to treat equine asthma.. ...
Allergic respiratory disease tends to occur in older horses and we dont tend to see chronic respiratory diseases like RAO and SPAOPD (Summer Pasture Associated Obstructive Pulmonary Disease - essentially like RAO but horses are better inside as they develop allergy to primarily outdoor allergens such as pollen) developing until 6-7 years of age. With allergic respiratory disease this can be a risk all year round. More time in the stable in Winter and increased hay intake can increase exposure to moulds, forage mites and bacterial endotoxin - all potent respiratory allergens and especially for horses with RAO (horses with RAO are better out than stabled - opposite to SPAOPD affected horses). During Spring, Summer and Autumn even when out horses can be susceptible to exposure to pollen and moulds. Again, older horses with RAO in particular can be worse at certain times of the year when turned out as they may be sensitive to both moulds and pollens ...
This article discusses skin-related problems that primarily affect horses during the summertime. Equine skin problems arise more frequently during the summer months for several reasons. First, horses tend to be more active. They are ridden more and are reproductively active and so they tend to incur more injuries and skin wounds and are exposed to infectious diseases. Second, intense summer solar radiation causes sunburn and photosensitization. Third, flies and other insects contribute to a whole host of different skin-associated problems and other diseases. Understanding how these factors contribute to equine skin diseases gives us clues as to how to prepare for and avoid these troublesome problems.. THE ACTIVE SUMMER LIFESTYLE. The fact that horses are more active in the summer means that there are more opportunities for accidents that result in skin wounds. More travel means more stress and contact with other horses, increasing exposure to contagious skin disease like Equine Ringworm. This ...

Research team led by Göttingen University questions link to warmblood fragile foal syndrome. Warmblood fragile foal syndrome is a severe, usually fatal, genetic disease that manifests itself after birth in affected horses. Due to the defect, the connective tissue is unstable. Under force, for instance, the skin tears from the tissue underneath and the joints can suffer dislocation. A research team from the Universities of Göttingen and Halle has now been able to prove that the disease did not stem from the English thoroughbred stallion Dark Ronald XX, which had been the assumption until now. The results have been published in the journal Animal Genetics.. The mystery of the genetic defect could have been solved in 2012: this is when gene responsible was identified. It is called PLOD1 and normally ensures that collagen molecules in the skin and connective tissue can bind to form a stable network. The mutation in the PLOD1 gene prevents cross-linking which is needed for stable collagen. The ...
On March 26, the State Veterinarians Office was notified by the Colorado State University Diagnostic Laboratory that a Larimer County horse tested positive for Equine Herpesvirus (EHV-1). CDA is investigating the positive case and has placed the facility where the horse is stabled under quarantine. The horse is undergoing treatment and others it may have come into contact with are being monitored but are not showing clinical signs of the disease at this point. At this time the affected horse is the only horse showing any clinical signs of disease and is recovering.. The most common way for EHV-1 to spread is by direct horse-to-horse contact but it can also spread through the air, contaminated equipment, clothing and hands; this certainly highlights the importance of practicing basic biosecurity practices, said State Veterinarian Keith Roehr. Equine event organizers should continue to practice routine biosecurity practices that are effective in prevention of EHV and other horse diseases as ...
A detailed abdominal ultrasound examination was performed in five normal horses, repeated on five occasions (total of 25 examinations). The abdomen was divided into ten different imaging sites, and structures identified in each site were recorded. Five imaging sites were then selected for a single focused ultrasound examination in 20 normal horses. Limited patient preparation was performed. Structures were recorded as identified if ultrasonographic features could be distinguished. The location of organs and their frequency of identification were recorded. Data from both phases were analysed to determine repeatability of identification of structures in each examination (irrespective of imaging site), and for each imaging site ...
One of these cases is in Greenville County and is the first confirmed case in the Upstate in 2016, Parr said. The Greenville County case was a 10-year-old quarter horse. The second new case was a five-year-old quarter horse in Horry County. Neither of these horses had been vaccinated according to label instructions and neither survived.. Eleven cases have been confirmed by Clemson Livestock-Poultry Health in seven counties, four in Horry County alone. Also in the coastal plain, Berkeley, Colleton, Dorchester, Marion counties have reported cases, as has Kershaw County in the Midlands.. Any livestock, including horses, that display these signs must be reported to the state veterinarian at 803-788-2260 within 48 hours, according to state law.. Information on animal diseases and reporting requirements can be found on the Livestock-Poultry Health website, www.clemson.edu/lph.. ...
Horses are just like cats and dogs in that they need to also have yearly vaccinations to help protect their immune system from specific infections.
RHINOPNEMOTIS is another common respiratory virus in horses, and it can be serious. Recommendations for vaccinations are the same as influenza and are combined as flu-rhino.. The virus can have a damaging effect on the developing equine fetus, so pregnant mares should be vaccinated at their fifth, seventh and ninth months of gestation with a special killed version of the rhinopneumotis virus.. RABIES has increased dramatically in the United States over the past eight years; and cases of rabies in horses are being reported more frequently. Rabies vaccination should be done yearly, and because this is a very inexpensive vaccine against a 100-percent fatal disease, there is no reason not to vaccinate.. POTOMAC HORSE FEVER is a disease that was first diagnosed in the Potomac River Valley of Virginia and Maryland. Horses develop a very high fever and diarrhea, then founder. Many horses died in the initial outbreak. A vaccine has been developed, and the number of reported cases has dropped ...
While horses stabled inside are clearly more likely to be exposed to particulate matter, horses on pasture during the summer can also have trouble. This even has its own nomenclature, summer pasture associated obstructive pulmonary disease or SPAOPD. Horses with this syndrome should be kept off pasture during the summer months, but can be housed outdoors during the rest of the year. If horses must be housed inside, whether they are SPAOPD or perhaps competitive horses that must be stalled, it is imperative that the environment is as dust free as possible. Straw bedding may not be a great choice for RAO horses but shavings can also contain molds similar to those in hay and straw. High quality straw may actually be lower in spore count that some shavings. Alternative beddings may yield the best results such as cardboard or newspaper pellets. If straw or shavings are used, remove any RAO affected horses while bedding is introduced into the stalling area. Essentially, let the dust settle before the ...

Objective: To investigate whether 14-3-3 eta protein is detectable in synovial fluid and blood serum of high performance horses and to study whether any significant correlation between this and matrix metalloproteinase 1 and 3 in horse synovial fluid. Design: Clinical study. Animals: Eleven standard breed horses (seven high performances and four controls). Procedures: Blood serum and fetlock synovial fluid of seven high performance and four control horses were subjected to western blot for detection of 14-3-3 eta, gama, matrix metalloproteinase 1 and 3 proteins. Results: High level of 14-3-3 eta protein was detected in synovial fluid of high performance horses compare to those of control (P|0.05). 14-3-3 gama protein was detectable in synovial fluid and significant differences was found between high performance and control horses (P|0.05). The level of matrix metalloproteinase 1 and 3 were significantly increased in samples of high performance horses relative to of that control (p|0.05). The results

Fly traps include fly strips and fly containers. Fly strips are usually yellow ribbons of sticky tape that can be suspended from stall ceilings and other areas within the stable. Flies are attracted to colors in the orange and yellow spectrum; drawn to the strip, they stick to it once they alight. Container traps usually use bait systems, where flies are attracted to a jar or bag containing water and a food or hormone bait. The fly crawls into the container, and the clear sides confuse it, since flies do not recognize glass or see-through plastic. Exhaustion overcomes the insect, and it drops into the water and drowns ...

I have a 27yo quarter horse mare who has been with me for 23 years. Over the last 2 years, she has developed arthritis and ataxia in her hind quarters. She has a wonderful zest for life and still wanders up and down the slope and trots around her corral. She runs into trouble when she lays down to take a nap… she cant get up without help.. if she is not laying on a completely flat suface. I have to turn her around so that her legs are pointing downward. If she has been laying there for a couple of hours, then we prop her on her sternum against a bale of hay until the circulation gets going again. Once she is up, she wants to start running right away. My vet wants to inject her back w/steroids… I want to find something natural that will address the issue. Personally, I am doing quite well on Zyflamend with regard to arthritis so am wondering if I can give it to her. I have been all over the net trying to find studies of it being used on horses, but havent found anything yet. There are no ...
The aim of the study was to use spatial and multiple correspondence analysis (MCA) to describe and compare the regional proportion and spatial pattern of volumetric bone mineral density (BMDv) values within loaded regions of the plantar metatarsal epiphysis of young horses in race training.

Polysaccharide storage myopathy (PSSM) is a muscle disease that occurs in many different breeds of horse, though primarily in Quarter Horses, Paint Horses and Appaloosas.
When a horse has EIPH, he is suffering from hemorrhages in the lungs due to a rupture of capillaries during intense exercise. This results in bleeding in the airways. Horse owners may notice a decrease in athletic performance, coughing or swallowing right after exercise, and bleeding from one or both nostrils.. EIPH is common in racehorses of all kinds (flat racers, steeplechasers, harness racers, Quarter Horse racers) and other high-performance horses, such as eventers and barrel racers.. EIPH horses are often treated with furosemide (known as Lasix). However, Lasix is banned at many competitions and racetracks due to its potent diuretic effect, which can reduce a horses body weight and cause a potentially unfair competitive advantage.. Lasix is supposed to reduce plasma volume, cardiac output, and pulmonary vascular pressure. But its effect on reducing blood pressure in the lung capillaries has been under debate. In addition, according to a review by two researchers from the University of ...
