Abstract

Equine grass sickness (EGS) is a frequently fatal disease with a mortality rate of 85% and more, which can affect all members of the equine family (equidae). The disease results in severe and extensive damage of neurons in both the central and the peripheral nervous system. The gastrointestinal...

Abstract

Reasons for performing study: Objective criteria for predicting survival of chronic grass sickness cases are currently lacking. Objectives: To determine whether the rate and/or magnitude of bodyweight change during hospitalisation of chronic grass sickness cases can provide an objective predictor...

Abstract

Reasons for performing study: Diagnosis of equine grass sickness (EGS) can be challenging. We hypothesised that subgemmal plexus neurons are chromatolytic in EGS. If correct, histopathological examination of gustatory papillae biopsies could aid premortem diagnosis of EGS, and EGS could represent a ...

Abstract

Seven horses with grass sickness were diagnosed in the Helsinki University Veterinary Teaching Hospital in 1999-2014. All horses had initial colic signs. The most of the horses had muscle tremors and decreased or absent gastrointestinal sounds. All horses were nonresponsive to treatment and were...

Abstract

Background: New updates about the epidemiology and aetiology of equine grass sickness (EGS) are necessary since the diagnosis of the first Hungarian cases in 2001. Objectives: To review the epidemiology, aetiology, clinical signs treatment and diagnostic opportunities of equine grass sickness,...

Abstract

Grass sickness is a fatal disease of pastured horses. The disease was first reported in 1909 in Scotland. The highest incidence of grass sickness is found in Great Britain but the disease is also recognized in other parts of Europe, in South and North America and in recent years also in Finland....

Abstract

Grass sickness is a polyneuropathy that affects the central and peripheral nervous system in horses. This disease is almost exclusively observed in grazing horses. It is commonly seen on the British Isles, but rarely in France. Three clinical forms of variable severity exist. The acute form is...

Abstract

Equine grass sickness (EGS) is a neurodegenerative disease affecting grazing equids of which a single case of the chronic clinical presentation has previously been reported in a Przewalski's horse (Equus ferus [caballus] przewalskii). A group of 8 Przewalski's horses were moved to a new enclosure,...

Abstract

Equine grass sickness (EGS) (equine dysautonomia) is a neurodegenerative condition of grazing equines. Pre-mortem diagnosis of EGS is a challenge for practitioners as definitive diagnosis requires ileal/myenteric lymph node biopsies. This study aimed to develop a clinical score that could be used...

Abstract

Background: An accurate, minimally invasive, ante-mortem diagnostic test for equine grass sickness (EGS) is currently lacking. Although histological examination of haematoxylin and eosin-stained rectal biopsies for chromatolytic neurons is insensitive as a diagnostic test for EGS, we hypothesised...
