california encephalitis virus activity in mosquitoes and horses in southern ontario, 1975.a study was undertaken in 1975 to determine california encephalitis virus activity in southern ontario. three thousand and sixty-one mosquitoes, primarily aedes species, were divided into 104 pools and inoculated into suckling mice. isolates of snowshoe hare virus were obtained from one pool each of aedes fitchii and a. triseriatus mosquitoes collected in the guelph area. serological testing of horse sera revealed extensive virus activity in southern ontario and indicated that horses may serve a ...197834475
case report: an outbreak of herpesvirus myeloencephalitis in vaccinated horses.in the foaling season of 1977, five vaccinated horses in a standardbred breeding stable were affected with herpesvirus myeloencephalitis. respiratory and abortigenic forms also occurred in other individuals on the premises. equine herpesvirus type 1 was isolated from the brain of one case of myeloencephalitis and from lungs of two aborted fetuses. twelve of 16 horses demonstrated fourfold or greater increases in titres to equine herpesvirus type 1.1979216473
epidemiology of equine upper respiratory tract disease on standardbred racetracks.the outbreaks of upper respiratory tract infections in horses at standardbred racetracks were investigated over a three year period. the most serious epidemics of respiratory disease occurred in the winter and spring seasons. both influenza viruses and equine herpesvirus 1 were shown to be present in the horse population. the herpesvirus was associated with respiratory disease particularly in the winter but the equine influenza viruses apparently were responsible for the major epidemics of respi ...1979218705

a study of the effects of lasering on chronic bowed tendons at wheatley hall farm limited, canada, january, 1983.chronic bowed tendons of horses have been lasered with an infrared 904-nm laser at wheatley hall farm limited since 1980. a sample of 42 single injury/single treatment standardbreds which were racing within 120 days of laser treatment and met certain criteria, were evaluated for final race times, last quarter race times, and class changes. results indicate that a significant percent of the standardbreds raced with similar or improved times and classes. lasering bowed tendons presents a safe and ...19836633135
epidemiological survey of corynebacterium equi infections on five ontario horse farms.corynebacterium equi was cultured from manure or soil on five horse-breeding farms in ontario at monthly intervals on three occasions during the summer of 1982. the organism was widespread. contamination by c. equi of the loafing paddock and pasture areas was significantly greater in a farm established 30 years than in two established for four and six years and there was a significant correlation between the c. equi burden in stables, paddocks and pastures and the length of use of the five farms ...19846713248

clinical and endoscopic study to estimate the incidence of distal respiratory tract infection in thoroughbred foals on ontario breeding farms.respiratory tract infections are prevalent in foals, yet the frequency with which the distal airways are affected in clinical episodes of respiratory tract disease has not been evaluated to our knowledge. the objective of the study was to determine the incidence of distal respiratory tract infection (drti) in foals on a sample of thoroughbred breeding farms (n = 10) in ontario. in a pilot study, clinical criteria commonly used to select foals for antimicrobial treatment (detection of abnormal lu ...19938250384
microbiologic changes during antimicrobial treatment and rate of relapse of distal respiratory tract infections in foals.despite the high incidence of distal respiratory tract infection of undetermined cause on farms, to our knowledge, the microbiologic effects of conventional antimicrobial treatment for this condition have not been studied. we evaluated the possible pathogenic role of bacterial isolates from the distal airways of foals with clinical respiratory tract disease, by correlating changes in their numbers (increase or decrease) with clinical, endoscopic, and pulmonary cytologic signs of disease resoluti ...19938250385
association of microbiologic flora with clinical, endoscopic, and pulmonary cytologic findings in foals with distal respiratory tract infection.undifferentiated distal respiratory tract disease (nasal discharge, cough, pneumonia) in foals (1 to 8 months old) is a burdensome economic problem on breeding farms; yet, the infective agents associated with these episodes have not been well described. possible causes of these episodes of illness were investigated by culturing specimens of proximal and distal airways of clinically diseased foals (n = 101), prior to any treatment, for aerobic and anaerobic bacteria and viruses (rhinoviruses, equ ...19938250386

tansy ragwort poisoning in a horse in southern ontario.bizarre behavior, apparent lameness, and colic were noticed in 1 of 3 horses on a pasture overgrown by weeds during a drought. liver failure and hepatoencephalopathy were diagnosed, caused by pyrrolizidine alkaloid toxicosis associated with consumption of tansy ragwort. the horse made a full recovery when removed from the pasture.200010816838
a prospective study of the roles of clostridium difficile and enterotoxigenic clostridium perfringens in equine diarrhoea.faecal samples from adult horses and from foals with diarrhoea or with normal faeces were evaluated for the presence of clostridium difficile, c. difficile toxins, c. perfringens enterotoxin (cpe) and c. perfringens spore counts. clostridium difficile was isolated from 7/55 horses (12.7%) and 11/31 foals (35.5%) with colitis, but from 1/255 normal adults (0.4%) and 0/47 normal foals (p<0.001). clostridium difficile toxins a and/or b were detected in 12/55 diarrhoeic adults (21.8%) and 5/30 diarr ...200111469775
emergence of salmonella typhimurium definitive type 104 (dt104) as an important cause of salmonellosis in horses in ontario.salmonella typhimurium definitive type 104 (dt104) has emerged as a common cause of salmonellosis in humans and cattle, yet previous reports involving horses are sparse. this study reports the emergence of dt104 as an important pathogen in horses in ontario. the first clinical case of dt104 infection at the ontario veterinary college was identified in 1997. seventeen cases of dt104-associated salmonellosis were identified between 1997 and 2000. in 2000, 12 of 13 cases of salmonellosis were due t ...200111665427
halicephalobus gingivalis (stefanski, 1954) from a fatal infection in a horse in ontario, canada with comments on the validity of h. deletrix and a review of the genus.although the original description given by stefanski (1954) was satisfactory, anderson & bemrick (1965), in describing h. deletrix (= micronema deletrix), claimed stefanski's description was "inadequate" and the species a "species inquirenda". thus, infections in horses and humans have been assigned to h. deletrix. we believe the species reported in horses and humans is h. gingivalis and that h. deletrix is its synonym. h. gingivalis is separated herein from forms found free-living. the genital ...19989772725
