RIBOFLAVIN and ophthalmia in horses



RIBOFLAVIN and ophthalmia in horses



Nutrition Reviews 9(1): 15-17



Recent reports from T. C. Jones and his colleagues in U.S.A. on the relation of ribo-flavin to the incidence of periodic ophthalmia in horses were discussed. In a study of large numbers of army horses it was found that a supplement of 50 mg. riboflavin daily prevented the occurrence of the lesions. Dosing with riboflavin did not, however, cure established lesions. No clear cut correlation was established between riboflavin content of feed and the incidence of periodic ophthalmia.
