Nutritional, physiological, biochemical and haematological controls in the racing greyhound

, : Nutritional, physiological, biochemical and haematological controls in the racing greyhound. Recueil de Medecine Veterinaire 159(9): 735-746

Various blood parameters were measured in samples from 11 greyhounds, of both sexes, aged 1-10 years, and physiological tests were made immediately before and after a 440-metre sprint. Samples of the daily diet used by the different owners were also analysed. The findings are tabulated. The significant changes associated with the sprint effort were in: pulse and respiratory rates, temperature and blood glucose, lactic acid, cholesterol, magnesium, potassium, zinc, haematocrit and cell counts.

An 18% prevalence of toxoplasmosis, diagnosed by the indirect latex agglutination test, was observed in 100 racing camels. Blood samples from these 18 camels, and from 18 without toxoplasmosis, were studied. A significant (P<0.05) decrease in t...

The treatment prolonged the running season by 78 days...
