OBJECTIVE To examine the effect of participation in a long-distance race on serum electrolyte concentrations, estimated exchangeable cation content, and acid-base status of Alaskan sled dogs. DESIGN Prospective study. ANIMALS 9 male and 5 female, sexually intact, physically fit Alaska sled dogs between 18 and 48 months old. PROCEDURE Body weight was recorded, and blood samples were collected from dogs before, during, and after a 300-mile race. RESULTS Serum sodium and potassium… CONTINUE READING
