Staat de info over die test ergens op internet Zannekin?
Vind ik niet zo direkt op het net. Dit staat in m'n dikke boek (Internal Medicine Large animals):
Foal Heat Diarrhea
Diarrhea developing during days 7 to 14 of life has been termed foal heat diarrhea because of the time relationship to the occurrence of postfoaling estrous in the mare. Diarrhea has developed in foals in this age group that have been raised separated from the dam on a consistent diet and isolated from pathogens, so it does not appear to be causally related to estrous. Clinical and experimental investigations have not determined the etiology of this condition. There is no demonstrable change in the composition of mare's milk during this time period. S. westeri has been investigated and is not believed to be the etiologic agent of foal heat diarrhea. Because foals eat hay and grain and practice coprophagia by 5 to 7 days of age, new bacterial flora and more fiber may be introduced into the gut and changes in fecal consistency may be produced.
Most foal heat diarrheas are mild and require no specific therapy. Continued diarrhea, fever, or depression with signs of reduced sucking activity on the mare should be evaluated carefully, and a complete blood count (CBC) and electrolyte and acid-base determinations performed. Appropriate fluids should be administered orally or intravenously. In some persistent cases of foal heat diarrhea, intestinal protectants may be beneficial. Younger foals with profuse diarrhea require more aggressive evaluation and treatment because of the risk of septicemia associated with diarrhea.
