Bacteremia in equine neonatal diarrhea: a retrospective study (1990-2007).
Bacteremia is common in neonatal foals with diarrhea andDecisions regarding antimicrobial selection should be made with these differences in mind.
Equine viral arteritis in newborn foals: clinical, pathological, serological, microbiological and immunohistochemical observations.
Clinical, pathological, immunohistochemical, serological and microbiological findings are described for 2 geographically and temporally distinct equine arteritis virus (EAV) epidemics in newborn
Neonatal care of high-risk cloned and transgenic calves.
Careful monitoring and aggressive treatment of the calves immediately after birth is described, because of their high value and their apparent tendency to develop certain conditions at a higher frequency than normal calves.
Culture-positive sepsis in neonatal camelids: 21 cases.
Familiarity with the clinical presentation and common pathogens isolated should improve early recognition and treatment and ultimately outcome of crias with sepsis.
Clinicopathologic evidence of disseminated intravascular coagulation in horses with acute colitis.
A horse with acute colitis was 8 times as likely to die or be euthanatized if a diagnosis of subclinical DIC was made, and clinicopathologic evidence of DIC is common and is significantly associated with a poor outcome in horses with acute Colitis.

Multinodular pulmonary fibrosis in five horses.
Horses evaluated because of decreased appetite, weight loss, fever, cough, tachypnea, and respiratory distress were diagnosed with equine multinodular pulmonary fibrosis and equine herpesvirus type 5 was found in association with EMPF.
Pharmacokinetics of acyclovir in adult horses
IV administration of acyclovir to healthy adult horses achieves concentrations within the sensitivity range described for equine herpes virus-type 1.
Acute lung injury and acute respiratory distress syndromes in veterinary medicine: consensus definitions: The Dorothy Russell Havemeyer Working Group on ALI and ARDS in Veterinary Medicine
Use of veterinary-specific definitions for acute lung injury and acute respiratory distress-like syndromes occurring in veterinary patients should allow for more direct comparisons of studies and clinical trials, with a larger goal of improving outcome in Veterinary patients.
Sequential plasma lactate concentrations as prognostic indicators in adult equine emergencies.
The results indicate that lactate metabolism is impaired in critically ill horses and [LAC]deltaT can be a useful prognostic indicator in horses.
