Takes Steps to Prevent Venezuelan Equine Encephalitis

Takes Steps to Prevent Venezuelan Equine Encephalitis

What is EEE, WEE and VEE?

EEE, WEE and VEE are caused by Alphaviruses. EEE is the most common of the three and is found widely in several regions of the United States (especially in areas of high mosquito populations). WEE occurs infrequently but circulates in wildlife. VEE is a Foreign Animal Disease and therefore reportable at both the Federal and State level. VEE occurs in cycles in Central and South America; there were incursions into the United States decades ago.

Dental Issues May Cause Performance Problems

The horse’s teeth are crucial for proper eating/chewing and therefore a big factor in whether or not the horse obtains adequate nutrition.  Healthy teeth are important for good health and fitness.  Teeth also play a role in performance of an equine athlete because tooth problems can lead to pain, which can lead to certain behaviors that can affect performance.  Sometimes a performance problem may be subtle or not readily recognized as being linked to a tooth problem.  It’s important to figure these things out, with proper diagnosis and treatment, in order to address and correct the underlying issue.

To Better Assess Lameness in Horses, Researchers Use Technology to Define Normal Muscle Activity

“We know that horses alter their movement pattern when they’re lame, but we don’t know much about the functional changes in muscles that facilitate these changes in movement,” said Dr. Lindsay St. George, Research Fellow at UCLan, and the study’s primary investigator. “We want to define muscle activity in clinically sound, non-lame horses, and then use this knowledge to quantify adaptive changes in muscle activity that occur when a horse is lame.”

Insulin Resistance or Insulin Dysregulation?

Insulin Resistance or Insulin Dysregulation?

Insulin resistance (IR) means the insulin-responsive cells — muscle, fat, liver — do not take up glucose normally in response to insulin. As a result, the pancreas puts out higher levels of insulin until the glucose blood levels normalize. This is one explanation for why blood insulin levels would be higher than normal.

Scientists Discover Genetic Markers Tied to Loss of Ability to Sweat in Horses

“We found that this disease has similarities to cystic fibrosis which has many drug treatments available and in development. Knowing this, we can start to consider ways to treat these horses that suffer from this condition, helping them sweat more normally over longer periods of time.”

Sugar and Hoof Health

Sugar and Hoof Health

Sugar phobia has reached a point where virtually any problem with a horse’s hooves may be blamed on sugar. From thrush to weak laminar connections, sugar is blamed. This often comes with stories of how horses have improved once the diet was changed. However, sugar is rarely the culprit here. Many different problems cause quality issues in hooves but most have nothing to do with sugar.
