Abstract

The presence of microscopic filamentous fungi and their secondary products - mycotoxins in feed, carries with them the risk of mycotoxicosis for different animal species. Horses and pigs are the most susceptible species in so-called fumonisin-toxicosis. In horses, they cause fatal illnesses with...

Mycotoxin contaminations pose a growing problem in animal production from the economic and toxicological point of view. Clinical symptoms of mycotoxicosis are relatively unspecific, making the disease difficult to diagnose. This study presents a clinical case of dairy cattle infected with natural...

Abstract

Stachybotrys atra is a saprophytic mould able to develop on substrates that are rich in cellulose (straw, hay) in case of moistening. This fungal species may produce several toxic compounds: satratoxins. These mycotoxins are responsible for toxic accidents in equine. Clinical expression of the...
