Brief content of the article
The objective of this study was to assess the relationships between serum parameters of breeding horses when fed with additional micronutrients along with their traditional feeding regime, i.e. hay/grains ration. The relationship between serum proteins and serum urea; and the relationship between serum lipids and either serum glutamic oxaloacetic transaminase (GOT) or glutamic pyruvic transaminase were studied. A fulltext article in slovenian and an English abstract is available on: http://www.bfro.uni-lj.si/zoo/publikacije/zbornik/PDF/82-2003-1-37-46.pdf. The level of significance should be considered when reading the article.
