Abstract

A double-blind randomised clinical trial was undertaken to determine the value of parenterally administered S. equi M-protein vaccine in foals during an epizootic of strangles. Weaned mixed-breed foals (n = 664) housed on 2 adjacent feed-lots (A and B) arrived over a 5-day period, 2 weeks before...

Abstract

A mild form of strangles caused by an atypical S. equi was recognized on a large horse breeding farm. The organism differed from most S. equi isolates by disappearance of the mucoid capsule by 24 hours of culture, leaving a matt-type colony. Typically, the clinical signs were a transient (24-48...
