Abstract

The domesticated horse has played a unique role in human history, serving not just as a source of animal protein, but also as a catalyst for long-distance migration and military conquest. As a result, the horse developed unique physiological adaptations to meet the demands of both their climatic...

A 9-year-old Percheron mare is presented for caesarean section due to clinical dystocia during labor. Xylazine was employed during preanaesthesia, followed by induction with ketamine and diazepam, while anaesthetic maintenance was obtained with isoflurane. The mare showed good recovery, however 24...

Abstract

Erythrocyte alloantigen frequencies of draft horses in Japan were investigated to assess blood donor suitability for transfusion. Here, 148 Japanese draft, 69 Percheron, and 65 Breton horses were blood-typed and subjected to an indirect antiglobulin test. Regarding the major immunogenic factors,...

AbstractFull Text

Genetic diversity among 12 horse breeds present in Pakistan was determined by using RAPD markers. The blood samples of purebred animals of eight exotic breeds (Thoroughbred, Arab, Anglo-Arab, Suffolk, Percheron, Clevland, Noriker and Hanovarian) present in Pakistan were collected from Army Remount...

Abstract

Cardiac arrhythmias may cause decreased performance and sudden death during exercise. Our objectives were: (1) to determine prevalence of unrecognised arrhythmias in a population of competition draft horses by performing short duration screening electrocardiograms (ECGs) at rest; and (2) to assess...

Abstract

Equid breeds originating from the Iberian Peninsula and North Africa are believed to have genetically contributed to the formation of breeds and ecotypes from Brazil. The country has numerous breeds and ecotypes of horses and donkeys but there are no extensive studies on maternal genetic diversity...

AbstractFull Text

Equine coat color is an important phenotypic trait, predominantly within the context of correct animal identification. Due to the increased import of horses to Poland during the last years, uncommon coat colors seem to occur more often. In this study, we have analyzed the genotypes of cold-blooded ...

Abstract

This report describes an 11-year-old Percheron mare that presented with signs of colic and was ultimately diagnosed with bacterial peritonitis of unknown origin. Bacterial culture of a peritoneal fluid sample isolated 2 Clostridial species, one of which was strongly suspected to be Clostridium...

Abstract

In Chile, the National Equine Promotion Plan for Agriculture (PNFE) aims to generate Chilean draft horses through absorbent crosses between native crossbred mares and fine heavy draft stallions belonging to the Chilean Army. The goal of this study was to characterise by microsatellite DNA analysis...

Abstract

Dystocia is often lethal for neonatal foals; however, its clinicopathological features remain largely unknown. We investigated the effect of dystocia on the foal blood profile. Venous blood samples were collected from 35 foals (5 Percheron and 30 crossbreds between Percheron, Belgian, and Breton...
