Equine GI Health

Post Mortem Findings on Equine Gastrointestinal Pathology

The research at Glasgow included a large-scale post-mortem analysis of the gastrointestinal tracts of horses euthanized for non-gastrointestinal diseases. This included visual examination of the entire mucosal surface of the GI tract, histopathological examination of samples from the large intestine, and parasite status assessment (determined via fecal worm egg counts and tapeworm ELISA). This in-depth study provides deeper insight into gastrointestinal pathologies in horses.
