  • equi (S. equi) is the causative agent of the highly contagious upper respiratory disease "strangles" in horses. (slu.se)
  • This leads to a clinical dilemma of whether the horse has strangles despite failure to recover S. equi or whether S. zooepidemicus is actually the organism responsible for the clinical disease. (slu.se)
  • Characterization of human and equine isolates of S. zooepidemicus revealed zoonotic transmission of certain strains of S. zooepidemicus from healthy horses that caused severe disease in humans. (slu.se)
  • A human isolate of S. zooepidemicus was closely related to a S. zooepidemicus strain isolated from a large disease outbreak in horses, suggesting that certain strains of S. zooepidemicus may be disease-causing in both humans and horses. (slu.se)
  • Characterization of a disease-causing strain of S. zooepidemicus (ST-24) in an outbreak of upper respiratory disease in Icelandic horses suggested that certain strains of S. zooepidemicus may not act solely as opportunistic pathogens, but may be more adapted to infect the upper respiratory tract in horses.

  • As a horse owner, one major responsibility is making sure that each horse's hooves and lower limbs are frequently checked for injury, damage, disease or any condition that might affect the soundness of the horse. (equimed.com)
  • Hoof injury and disease have ended the careers and lives of many champion horses. (equimed.com)
