Problem statement: Malaysia imports horses from temperate countries to develop equine sports in the country. Several of these horses developed partial and complete anhidrosis. Approach: Normal, partial anhidrotic and anhidrotic horses were exercised to determine their sweating and physiological responses to exercise. The heart and respiratory rates, rectal temperature and blood samples were obtained before the horses were lunged at 10 km h-1 for 1 h and at again at 15, 30, 45, 60 min and 24 h… Expand

Figures and Tables from this paper

Responses of Serum Biochemical Parameters, Electrolytes and Heart Rate in an 80km Endurance Race
TLDR
Investigation of the changes of gamma glutamyltransferase (GGT), glucose, lactate, potassium and heart rate after an 80km endurance race found poor performance could be associated with changes in heart rate, glucose, milk lactate and potassium concentrations. Expand
Metabolic responses in endurance horses during racing in relation to uric acid profile, leucocytes, heart rate and plasma biochemical parameters.
TLDR
Heart rate, triglyceride, blood lactate and packed cell volume were significantly associated with uric acid, a biomarker of oxidative stress and could be used to evaluate performance and health status in endurance horses during training and endurance events. Expand
Epidemiology, electrolytes balance and treatment strategy of equine anhidrosis
TLDR
Horses are vulnerable to the attack of anhidrosis during warmer months of summer affecting serum electrolytes profile, and iodinated casein and germinated wheat have excellent therapeutic potential against this syndrome. Expand
Role of the Serum Muscular Enzymes in the Diagnosis of Post-Exertional Rhabdomyolysis in Draft Horses Used in Transplant Rice Seedlings
TLDR
The obtained results clarified significant alterations in the vital signs in the exertional rhabdomyolysis group in comparison to healthy horses under the same workload in the four examination periods and reflects the great load in healthy horses during rice seedling seasons. Expand
Effects of Race Distance on Physical, Hematological and Biochemical Parameters of Endurance Horses
TLDR
The study showed that eliminated horses exhibited poorer glucose uti lization than good performance horses, which may have resulted in poor lactate production and the blood lactate and glucose concentrations of horses during training may be used to predict their performance in endurance races. Expand
Effect of Age and Performance on Physical, Hematological, and Biochemical Parameters in Endurance Horses
TLDR
The influence of age was seen in the poor performance category in relation to lactate, but age did not influence other physical, hematological, and biochemical parameters of the endurance horses. Expand
Effects of Speed, Heart Rate, Lactate and Uric Acid on the Performance of Arabian Horses during a 120-Km Endurance Race
TLDR
In conclusion, alterations in speed, heart rate, blood lactate and uric acid led to poor performance and encumbered the health status of endurance horses. Expand
Comparison of Some Hematological Parameters Between Horses in an Endurance Competition
TLDR
In short distance endurance competition of horses, stress is not effect on metabolism of animal, furthermore, gender and breed could important in blood parameters alterations. Expand
Effect of strenuous sub-maximal race on heart rates of endurance horses
TLDR
The study showed that eliminated horses in the 40 and 80 km categories both exhibited high heart rates compared to the good performance horses that were in the same racing category, suggesting that the heart rates of horses during training may be used to predict performance based on distances covered in endurance races. Expand
Ranking of endurance horses in training based on some selected biochemical and physical parameters
TLDR
It is suggested that the current ranking system in training could be valid to be used to predict endurance horses’ performance in an actual race. Expand

Equine sweating responses to submaximal exercise during 21 days of heat acclimation.
TLDR
It is concluded that horses responded to 21 days of acclimation to, and exercise in, hot humid conditions with a reduction in sweat ion losses attributed to decreases in sweat Na(+) concentration and SR during recovery. Expand
A preliminary study of the short circuit current (Isc) responses of sweat gland cells from normal and anhidrotic horses to purinergic and adrenergic agonists.
TLDR
These pilot results not only confirm earlier conclusions from anatomical findings that failure in the secretory process occurs in anhidrosis but also indicate that both of the known ion transport mechanisms are involved. Expand
Equine anhidrosis: A review of pathophysiologic mechanisms
Anhidrosis is loss of the ability to sweat. The problem is seen in horses kept in a hot humid climate, and it may cause severe impairment of thermoregulation in the equine athlete. BritishExpand
Equine sweating and anhidrosis Part 1--equine sweating.
TLDR
The glands are not directly innervated but are controlled by the interplay of neural, humoral and paracrine factors, including autocrine control not only of the secretory process but probably also of secretory cell reproduction, growth, and death. Expand
Cardiovascular and respiratory responses to submaximal exercise training in the thoroughbred horse
TLDR
It is concluded that the increase in VO 2max after training in the horse is dependant on augmented blood flow, and is not dependent on either increased arterial oxygen content or arteriovenous oxygen content difference. Expand
Heat storage in horses during submaximal exercise before and after humid heat acclimation.
TLDR
It was concluded that, during uncompensable heat stress in horses, heat acclimation provided modest heat strain advantages when E(req)/E(max) was approximately 1.6, but at higher E( req)/E (max) no advantages were observed. Expand
Clinical, clinicopathologic, and epidemiologic features of anhidrosis in central Florida Thoroughbred horses.
A group of 834 Thoroughbred horses was surveyed on four central Florida farms for clinical and epidemiologic features of anhidrosis. In addition, comparative analysis was made of serum thyroxine,Expand
Equine sweating and anhidrosis Part 2: anhidrosis.
TLDR
There is a need for considerably more research on the secretory and transcriptional processes to document the changes arising within the glandular secretory mechanism as a prelude to development of a corrective treatment. Expand
Immunolocalization of aquaporin-5 expression in sweat gland cells from normal and anhidrotic horses.
TLDR
The level of AQP-5 expression was substantially reduced in animals with long-term anhidrosis, hence implicating water channel impairment as a possible factor in the development of this disorder. Expand
Thermoregulation in the horse in response to exercise.
TLDR
A basic understanding of the thermoregulatory responses in the exercising horse is imperative if heat induced illnesses are to be avoided and rapid recognition and effective management are essential. Expand
