Increase in Reports of Nocardioform Placentitis in Pregnant Mares

Increase in Reports of Nocardioform Placentitis in Pregnant Mares

According to research done at UK, the disease will sometimes result in the loss of the foal, but other times may only show up as a change or series of changes in the placenta with no noticeable effect on the foal. Because the bacterial infection is limited to the placenta, the foal itself is not infected. The foal can be underweight at birth or born healthy with the only sign anything was amiss being the telltale lesions found on the placenta.

Why “Coronavirus” is Different than Equine Coronavirus

They certainly sound similar, and that’s because a coronavirus is a microscopic strand of RNA, which is genetic material similar to DNA, wrapped in protein. When examined under a microscope, they look like they’re wearing tiny crowns, hence the name. Because this is a virus and not a bacteria, it cannot multiply on its own and must invade a host cell in order to sustain resources to make more viruses.

Alternative Treatment for Foal Pneumonia

Pneumonia caused by Rhodococcus equi is an insidious, often fatal, infection of foals. It causes abscesses in the lungs and can prove challenging to treat. A combination of two antimicrobials, azithromycin (AZM) and rifampicin (RIF), is widely used for treatment. Combination therapy is necessary as bacteria rapidly develop resistance to rifampicin if it is used on its own.

“There are many different white-spotting phenotypes in horses,” said equine genetics researcher Tosso Leeb, Ph.D., of the University of Bern in Switzerland. “Often the exact genotype cannot be solely determined by looking at the phenotype of a horse and/or the genotypes of the parents, so breeders need to know whether a horse carries SW5 or not.”
