Serum protein electrophoresis as an aid in diagnosis of equine verminous arteritis

Veterinary Medicine and Small Animal Clinician 78(8): 1279-1280, 1282

Serum protein electrophoresis as an aid in diagnosis of equine verminous arteritis

Serum protein electrophoretograms were done on 50 horses, all but a few of which had clinical signs suggestive of verminous arteritis (due to Strongylus vulgaris). The beta -globulin value was greater than 25% of total protein in 12 cases and in 10 of these verminous arteritis was confirmed, either at necropsy or on the basis of a favourable response to anthelmintic treatment (thiabendazole or fenbendazole).
