Abstract

Background: In newborn foals the absorption of colostrum immunoglobulins in the small intestine is maximal up to 8 hours after birth and then progressively decreases to become null after 24 hours post-partum. Thus, equine practitioners need a simple, quick, inexpensive and reliable field test to...

Abstract

Foals are born with a naive immune system, and rely upon the ingestion and absorption of immunoglobulins from the dam's colostrum to obtain passive immunity. Failure of passive transfer (FPT) is the most common immunodeficiency disorder in the horse and is associated with an increased risk of...

Abstract

A year-long prospective cohort study was conducted in Colombian Paso Fino horse farms to determine the risk factors associated with total failure of passive transfer. The risk factors associated to management, dam, foaling and foal were correlated with failure of passive transfer. Foal's IgG levels ...

Abstract

In foals more than 12 hours old, the only effective therapy for the treatment of failure of passive transfer (FPT) of immunity is transfusion of equine plasma. Use and efficacy of equine plasma for prophylaxis and treatment of sepsis, a condition primarily associated with FPT, are widely reported....

Abstract

During the years 2010-2013 a total of 263 foals were treated in the hospital unit of The University of Helsinki Veterinary Teaching Hospital. More than half of these foals were aged 5 days or less. The most common diagnoses were failure of passive transfer (n=78), sepsis (n=66), orthopedic diseases ...

Abstract

Background: Umbilical remnant infection and patent urachus are an important cause of morbidity for the equine neonate. Left untreated, fatal complications can develop. Identifying risk factors for post-operative complications after surgery are important for estimating prognosis. Objectives: To...

Abstract

Various assays have been used as an aid to diagnose failure of passive transfer (FPT) of immunoglobulins in neonatal foals, but often lack sensitivity as screening tests, or are time consuming to perform and impractical as confirmatory tests. The aim of the present study was to evaluate whether...

AbstractFull Text

Due to placental type of ruminants and equines, immunoglobulins cannot pass through from mother to newborn and immunity of these animals are provided with colostrum. Failure of passive transfer occurs in animals that cannot receive colostrum in first 48 hours and this situation causes catching an...

Abstract

Background: Bloodstream infections (BSI) are common in sick foals and increase foal morbidity and mortality when they occur. Recognition of risk factors for BSI could be an important means to limit their occurrence, but studies on this topic are limited. Objectives: Historical as well as maternal...

Abstract

The object of this study was to evaluate the usefulness of measuring the differences in the values of the serum total protein (DVSTP) concentration of foals and the refractometry index (DVRI) of the milk of dams before and after nursing of the colostrum for assessing failure of passive transfer...
