The onset of diseases often requires the administration of antimicrobials, but reducing their use in animals is currently a priority. Pegbovigrastim is a drug known for its immunoregulatory action in cows, but its function in calves has not been fully studied. The aim of the authors of this prospective study was to investigate the effects of pegbovigrastim administration on the nonspecific immunity of...

Cytology of airway samples is sensitive for diagnosis of exercise-induced pulmonary haemorrhage (EIPH), but the association between tracheal wash (TW) and bronchoalveolar lavage fluid (BALF) is unknown. The objective of this study was to determine whether diagnosis of EIPH, using haemosiderophages/macrophages (H/M) ratio, differs when based on TW or BALF. A prospective cross-sectional study was conducted on 102 standardbred horses in training. TW and BALF were collected concomitantly from all...
