Although newborn foals are immuno-competent, they are immunologically naive because of the failure of immunoglobulin transfer through the placenta [6, 7, 9]. Immunoglobulin production begins when foals were exposed to antigens. But adequate concentrations of immunoglobulins can be only reached up to two months of age [6]. Consequently, infectious diseases(More)
