The horse, as a hindgut fermenter, is reliant on its intestinal bacterial population for efficient diet utilisation. However, sudden disturbance of this population can result in severe colic or laminitis, both of which may require euthanasia. This study therefore aimed to determine the temporal stability of the bacterial population of faecal samples from(More)
A fully automated technique for the rapid detection of significant bacteriuria is described. The method, which depends on the detection of bacterial adenosine triphosphate (A.T.P.) by bioluminescence, was found to have better sensitivity than a conventional cultural technique which uses a standardised loop. Results were available in 30 minutes. In the 957(More)
