Inflammatory Airway Disease of Horses—Revised Consensus Statement
The purpose of this manuscript is to revise and update the previous consensus statement on inflammatory airway disease in horses and new findings have led to a significant evolution of the authors' understanding of IAD. Expand
Inflammatory airway disease of horses.
The purpose of this consensus statement is to provide a review of current knowledge and opinions concerning inflammatory airway disease (IAD) and to help practitioners differentiate IAD from heavesExpand
Clinical signs, evaluation of bronchoalveolar lavage fluid, and assessment of pulmonary function in horses with inflammatory respiratory disease.
Clinical examination is moderately accurate for establishing a diagnosis of COPD, and forced expiration tests can specifically detect early signs of airway obstruction in horses with COPD and IAD that may otherwise be inapparent. Expand
Investigation and control of an outbreak of salmonellosis caused by multidrug-resistant Salmonella typhimurium in a population of hospitalized horses.
An outbreak of salmonellosis in a population of hospitalized horses resulted in the closure of a teaching hospital for a period of 10 weeks and results suggested that this strain of S. typhimurium might have been introduced into the hospital environment by a foal presenting with diarrhea. Expand
Plasma adrenocorticotropin concentration in healthy horses and in horses with clinical signs of hyperadrenocorticism.
Plasma ACTH concentrations appeared to be a sensitive and specific indicator of ECD in horses and ponies and were not statistically different from those of samples kept at 1 degree C. Expand
Evaluation of a PCR to Detect Salmonella in Fecal Samples of Horses Admitted to a Veterinary Teaching Hospital
The diagnostic accuracy of a PCR used to identify horses shedding Salmonella spp. in their feces during hospitalization was estimated, relative to bacterial culture of serially collected fecalExpand
Blood gas, plasma lactate and bronchoalveolar lavage cytology analyses in racehorses with respiratory disease.
The results of this study suggest that lung ventilation-perfusion mismatch may be more severe in horses with respiratory disease. Expand
Effect of airway disease on blood gas exchange in racehorses.
Gas exchanges were the most severely impaired in horses affected with both EIPH and UAO because they exhibited the lowest Pao2 and highest Paco2 values. Expand
Forced expiration: a test for airflow obstruction in horses.
It is concluded that FEFV curve analysis allowed the detection of induced or naturally occurring airway obstruction in horses. Expand
A randomized clinical trial using probiotics to prevent Salmonella fecal shedding in hospitalized horses
Dosing horses with probiotics as early as possible before anticipated stressful events (eg, transportation, surgery, antibiotic treatment), followed by several subsequent treatments, may reduce contamination of the hospital environment by Salmonella and the risk of salmonellosis outbreaks. Expand
