Malgré le faible nombre d’ovocytes équins disponibles pour la recherche, des techniques de reproduction assistée récemment développées dans cette espèce permettent maintenant de produire des embryons en utilisant des étalons et des juments subfertiles ou même de sauvegarder leur potentiel génétique après leur mort. Cette revue de littérature décrit les aspects cliniques de la collecte d’ovocytes ex vivo ou in vivo, leur évaluation, leur maturation in vitro et leur utilisation pour le transfert intra-folliculaire ou salpyngien et l’injection intra-cytoplasmique de spermatozoïde.

Nowadays, Belgian poultry breeding is characterized by a strong biodiversity that is nevertheless greatly endangered. The present work aims at evaluating the zootechnical potential of an ancient poultry breed originating from the Franco-Belgian Ardennes region, the Ardennaise. This breed shows an important phenotypic variation, with 10 different varieties being recognized. This study evaluates the Ardennaise production performances and is divided into three parts: (1) the analysis of the growth and the consumption indices over a twelve weeks period, (2) the comparison of the growth over seventeen weeks in four varieties, (3) the study of eggs number and eggs weight over 70 weeks laying. The results indicate that the Ardennaise breed constitutes a good dual purpose breed that could be interestingly submitted to selection. Its use in industrial crosses for egg composition amelioration is also proposed. Lastly, this works shows the importance of extending the here developed evaluation protocol to other Belgian endangered poultry breeds to motivate the necessary conservation programs. [less ▲]

Numerous works are related to the use of unconventional feed resources, and particularly to Mucuna Spp., in poultry diet. This review aims at describing the context of their use, their nutritional values and the constraints related to their upgrading, before considering the effects of the various methods of treatment on the reduction of the toxic substances that they could contain and on their chemical compositions. The methods of treatment are very variable and their standardisation should allow using them in rural area. Those feed could thus constitute an alternative to costly conventional feed usually used in poultry production. [less ▲]

Cardiomyopathies in cattle are disorders that are sometimes encountered by rural practitioner. They usually lead to cardiac dysfunction, heart failure, arrhythmias and even sudden death. Most of cardiomyopathies in cattle are of hereditary, nutritional or toxic origin. Bovine cardiomyopathies may involve only one animal as they may affect several animals of the farm and can cause considerable economic losses either in treatment costs, decrease of zootechnical performances or in mortality. The etiological variability of cardiomyopathies as well as non-specificity of clinical signs often complicate the diagnostic approach of the practitioner. In this paper, a literature review on cardiomyopathies that may occur in cattle is proposed. Their different aetiologies and clinical aspects as well as diagnostic means in affected cattle are discussed [less ▲]

Trypanosoma evansi is an extracellular parasite, found in blood and tissues, mainly causing anaemia, immune depression and central nervous system disorders. Contrary to other African trypanosomes, T. evansi is adapted to mechanical transmission and thus, presents a worldwide distribution. This review summarizes the epidemiological data about T. evansi from its origins to the latest developments, as its addition in 2008 to the World Organization for Animal Health (OIE) listed diseases and other diseases of importance to International Trade. This article puts emphasis on the need for a coordinated epidemiological control strategy and research for improving diagnostic and control tools. [less ▲]

Following international agreements and european legislation, risk analysis has become a systematic approach to control the food chain safety. The microbial risks in the food chain and their consequences for public health can be assessed and managed more effectively. This paper gives a general description of the risk analysis principles based on the Codex Alimentarius commission. This work highlights the advantages and disadvantages of risk analysis and also treats the problems to achieve a complete “farm to fork” model. Salmonella in different food types is taken as an example to illustrate quantitative risk assessment. Two models concerning eggs and broiler chickens developed by the World Health Organization/Food and Agriculture Organization consortium and a third model concerning pigs developed by the Veterinary Laboratories Agency of the United Kingdom are described. An analysis of the methods used for the construction of these two models is also presented. The interest of these three models is that they also include risk management options to limit the spread of food-borne infections. They also describe the final risk for a population following consumption of foodstuffs. These models are valuable tools for health officials but also for feed industry. [less ▲]

Ovarian cyst treatment and its efficacy imply to make the diagnosis as early as possible during the end of waiting period or period of reproduction of cows potentially concerned. Moreover, we must keep in mind that during the early postpartum period 38 to 80% of cysts spontaneously regress. The choice of a treatment also depends on criteria and sensitivity level of the identified (follicular or luteinized) cyst. Cysts treatment can be curative or preventive. Give an adequate level of nutrition and reduce the frequency of puerperal diseases during the postpartum period can contribute to reduce the risk of ovarian cysts. Curatively, it's possible manually to rupture or to puncture the ovarian cyst by transvaginal way using or not an ultrasonographic control. Such method can be associated with an hormonal therapy. It's also possible to treat the cyst with hormones. Classically, follicular and luteinised cysts are respectively treated by luteotrope hormones (GnRH, hCG) and by PGF2alpha. As the goal of treatment is to assume a new follicular growth, both cysts can be also treated with progestagens given by intravaginal way. During the last years, different hormonal protocols have been used. Ovsynch has been evaluated and compared with others protocols. Until now, such hormonal associations have a rather limited effect on the pregnancy rates. Moreover, they appear rather expensive. [less ▲]

A large number of publications have been devoted to the ultrasonography and hormonal follow-up of the follicular growth. This alteration of the normal follicular growth may concern the recruited, growing or preovulatory follicles mainly during the puberty and post-partum periods. Cyst development results (i) in an endocrine inbalance of the hypothalamo-hypophysial axis: the positive feedback of oestradiol on LH is altered because of a lack in progesterone impregnation of hypothalamic receptors;(ii) in a follicular wall dysfunction. However, data on this mechanism are still lacking; (iii) in animal properties like age, milk production, energetic balance, genetics, post-partum and calving pathologies as endometritis or lameness; (iv) in environnemental factors like nutrition, season, stressfull conditions. This different factors shoud be able to disturbe the hypothalamo-hypophysial complex functions. [less ▲]

Ultrasound has become more common in the investigation of the podotrochlear apparatus in the horse and the use of more sensible scanheads improved the quality of the images. This study shows six examples of the ultrasound anatomy of the distal podotrochlear apparatus in the transcuneal view performed with three different scanheads. The presented transcuneal scans of the podotrochlear apparatus of an 18 months old warmblood foal have been established post mortem on isolated feet. Modus of registration was real-timemotion, linear- and sectorscanheads working at 7.5 (linear) and 7.5 (microconvex) and 3.5 (convex) MHz were used. The echoanatomic structures of the soft tissue and bony surfaces in the distal podotrochlear region are compared by six images. The combination of the different scanheads permits an improved complete visualisation in this area. Therefore these ultrasound pictures show that ultrasonography is an useful complementary investigation method that enables to precise the diagnosis [less ▲]

Les publications traitant des effets métaboliques des aliments enrichis en matière grasse dans l’alimentation du cheval sont nombreuses. Cet article s’intéresse d’abord au contexte de leur utilisation et à leurs caractéristiques, avant d’envisager leurs effets sur l’appétence et la digestibilité de la ration. Bien que le vocable d’aliment enrichi en matière grasse recouvre des réalités bien différentes en termes de composition, l’examen de la littérature indique qu’ils présentent globalement une bonne appétence et que la digestibilité de la matière grasse est particulièrement élevée. Ils pourraient ainsi constituer une alternative de choix à l’utilisation de quantités importantes de céréales, dont les effets négatifs sont aujourd’hui bien documentés. [less ▲]

Dans cette revue morphopathologique des myopathies du cheval, plus particulièrement de celles qui atteignent la musculature striée squelettique, l’accent est mis délibérément sur le fil conducteur histopathologique et, plus particulièrement, sur les éléments morphologiques qui permettent de classer les lésions observées dans un groupe d’entités connues. Le mot myopathie est, dans cet article, pris au sens le plus large, c’est-à-dire au sens étymologique du terme, signifiant toute affection du système musculaire. Sur base des lésions histologiques, on distingue quatre groupes d’affections musculaires ou myopathies : (i) celles qui se caractérisent par une modification de la taille des fibres musculaires, (ii) celles qui se caractérisent par une modification de l’aspect des fibres musculaires, (iii) celles qui se caractérisent par un infiltrat cellulaire de l’interstitium et (iv) celles sans expression morphologique typique avec soit absence de lésions, soit présence concomitante de plusieurs types de lésions sans qu’une lésion domine le tableau. Pour chaque entité décrite dans ces différentes classes, les conditions d’apparition, un tableau clinique succinct, le mécanisme et l’étiologie lorsqu’ils sont connus ainsi que les lésions macroscopiques sont également exposés.

Osteochondrosis (OC), a developmental orthopaedic disease, is consecutive to a defect in the endochondral ossification process, and can result in formation of an osteochondral fragment (osteochondrosis dissecans). Our objective is to establish the prevalence of osteochondrosis in Wallonia, and describe the main observed lesions. One hundred forty-two Warmblood horses, aged from 12 to 36 months, underwent a systematic X-ray examination. Sixty-three of these horses (44.4 %) presented one or more OC lesions, 46 (32.4 %) of them with an articular fragment. This prevalence is similar to those observed in Dutch Warmblood horses (44.3 %). The localisation of the lesions was as follows: 25 (17.6 %) of the experimental group showed one or more lesions in the hindlimbs fetlocks, 23 (16.2 %) in the hocks, 21 (14.8 %) in the stifles and 14 (9.9 %) in the forelimbs fetlocks. The medial ridge of the talus is the most frequently injured anatomical site in our study. This lesion was observed in 12 horses (8.4 %), a prevalence that is by far higher than those observed in Dutch Warmblood horses (2.9 %). Not any significant difference was observed between males and females. The high prevalence and the clinical and economic consequences of this disease in the horse’s industry fully justify further research in order to improve the understanding of its pathogenic process.
