CVC IN KANSAS CITY PROCEEDINGS
Diarrhea is a significant cause of morbidity and mortality in foals. Numerous noninfectious and infectious agents are responsible for enterocolitis and enteritis in the newborn foal.
The neurologic examination: the forebrain (Proceedings)
CVC IN KANSAS CITY PROCEEDINGS
One of the critical functions of the reticular formation of the brainstem is activation of the cerebral cortex for the awake state. This component of the formation, known as the ascending reticular activating system (ARAS), is an ill-defined meshwork of cells concentrated in the rostral brainstem that receives afferent input from all parts of the CNS and projects excitatory stimuli cortically.
Equine neonatal sepsis: treatment (Proceedings)
CVC IN KANSAS CITY PROCEEDINGS
If the foal is less than 12 hours, it can be given 1-3 liters of high quality (sp gr > 1.090) colostrum. (Frozen colostrum should be thawed in warm water, rather than the microwave. Ideally colostrum should be < 12 months old).
