Lower airway inflammation is a frequent cause of poor-performance in hors e s .An association between inflammation and bacterial isolation in tracheal wash fluid has previously been found ; bacterial counts were neve rtheless not defined.The aims of this study were to qualitatively and quantitatively compare tracheal bacterial flora of French Trotters with tracheal inflammation (SIT) and control horses (CTL), and evaluate association between endoscopic, cytological and microbiological evaluation of the trachea. Neutrophil percentage in tracheal wash was significantly different between groups whereas tracheal mucus accumulation was not. No significant difference was found between groups for neither percentage of respectively sterile samples or percentage pathogenic bacteria being isolated. Bacterial counts in SIT group were however 10 to 200 times higher than in the CTL group.This study suggests that isolation of pathogenic bacteria alone do not allow estimation of the level of airway inflammation; whereas severe tracheal inflammation may be present in absence of any bacteriological infection [less ▲]

This case report describes a periarticular abscess and a suppurative arthritis of the atlanto-occipital joint in an adult horse. The horse showed a painful swelling localized on the atlanto-occipital region and ataxia in all four limbs. During his hospitalization the horse developed recumbency, dysphagia, facial paralysis and seizures. With the use of ultrasonography of the atlanto-occipital region a tentative diagnosis was made which was later confirmed by autopsy. Culture of the abscess revealed a Staphylococcus aureus. However, the horse had a history of recurrent fever, hypertrophy and abcessation of the submandibular lymph nodes, neck pain and dyspnoea for 2 months, suggestive for strangles. [less ▲]

Clinical affections of the locomotor and respiratory systems are the two main causes of poor performance in sport horses. Nevertheless, each subclinical affection of any system implicated in the oxygen system (respiratory, cardiovascular, blood, muscular and metabolic) may also become a limiting factor concerning the athletic capacities of the horse. A systematic medical examination of the horse, combining ail the clinical and laboratory exams, is thus necessary in order to establish a precise and comprehensive diagnosis regarding the different affections. The objectives of this communication are therefore to present the different methods currently available for the practitioner as well as the techniques recently developed for horses. The complementarity of the different clinical and laboratory exams, as well as the ideal moment for performing each test are clarified in order to accurately determine the different causes of poor performance as well as their functional repercussions [less ▲]
