Sweat fluid and ion losses in horses during training and competition in cool vs. hot ambient conditions: implications for ion supplementation



Sweat fluid and ion losses in horses during training and competition in cool vs. hot ambient conditions: implications for ion supplementation



Equine Veterinary Journal (Suppl. 22): 54-62



Incremental and total sweat fluid and ion losses were determined in 6 exercise-trained Thoroughbred horses after completing 2 weeks of exercise training in each of 2 ambient conditions: cool-dry (CD) with room temperature (T) of 20 to 22 degrees C and relative humidity (RH) of 45 to 55%, or hot-humid (HH) with T of 33 to 35 degrees C and RH of 80 to 85%.
