[serological studies of the recent infections of austrian horses with the equine arteritis virus].944 serum samples of horses, collected in 1988 and 1989, were examined for the occurrence of antibodies against equine arteritis virus by a microneutralizations test. in 10.9% of all sera reactors could be found. the distribution of seropositive horses varied from 4.6% (salzburg) to 15.7% (lower austria). from tyrol and vorarlberg no samples could be obtained. it was not possible, to correlate clinical symptoms (infertility, respiratory symptoms, fever and edema) with the infection. it is assume ...19911851082
horses and borrelia: immunoblot patterns with five borrelia burgdorferi sensu lato strains and sera from horses of various stud farms in austria and from the spanish riding school in vienna.grazing animals are continuously exposed to tick bites. consequently, one may expect that horses will become infected with the various pathogens carried by ticks including borrelia burgdorferi sensu lato. whether horses may develop clinical disease due to this pathogen is controversially discussed. we were interested to learn about the infection of horses with borrelia burgdorferi sensu lato within one season by studying the dynamics of the humoral immune response in paired blood samples. the ma ...200212141766
individual-based assessment of population structure and admixture in austrian, croatian and german draught horses.all over europe, the number of draught horses has decreased drastically during the last 50 years. as a prerequisite for efficient management decisions, we analysed the conservation status in austrian (noriker carinthia - nc, noriker salzburg - ns), croatian (croatian coldblood - c, posavina horse - p) and german (altmaerkisch coldblood - a, black forest horse - bf, mecklenburg coldblood - m, rhenish german draught horse - r, saxon thuringa coldblood - st, schleswig draught horse - sch, south ger ...200717035951
pedigree analysis in the austrian noriker draught horse: genetic diversity and the impact of breeding for coat colour on population structure.the pedigree of the current austrian noriker draught horse population comprising 2808 horses was traced back to the animals considered as founders of this breed. in total, the number of founders was 1991, the maximum pedigree length was 31 generations, with an average of 12.3 complete generations. population structure in this autochthonous austrian draught horse breed is defined by seven breeding regions (carinthia, lower austria, salzburg, styria, tyrol, upper austria and vorarlberg) or through ...200919765161
selective anthelmintic therapy of horses in the federal states of bavaria (germany) and salzburg (austria): an investigation into strongyle egg shedding consistency.for 9 consecutive months (march-november 2008), faecal samples were collected monthly from 129 horses residing within 40 km of salzburg, austria. samples were analysed quantitatively using a modified mcmaster egg counting technique. whenever a faecal egg count (fec) result exceeded 250 eggs per gram (epg), the horse was treated with pyrantel, ivermectin or moxidectin. in 52 of 129 horses (40.3%), no strongyle eggs were ever detected over the course of 9 months. in 39 horses (30.2%), strongyle eg ...201020356680
[the efficacy of anthelmintic drugs against horse strongyles in the area of salzburg and preliminary results of selective anthelmintic treatment].in recent years more and more cases of anthelmintic resistant equine strongyles were reported. the latest developments are cases of resistance against macrocyclic lactones. in order to delay this process less anthelmintics and only those which have been previously tested for their efficacy on each individual farm should be used. during the grazing season 2008 faecal samples of 281 horses and 5 donkeys from 26 farms were analysed in the area of salzburg. to 164 of these horses selective anthelmin ...201020924696
