Effect of varying initial drink volume on rehydration of horses.

Published: 2003-12-01

The effect of dietary energy source on serum concentration of insulin-like growth factor-I growth hormone, insulin, glucose, and fat metabolites in weanling horses.
Feeding diets high in soluble carbohydrates to growing horses has been implicated in the development of orthopedic diseases; as a result, substitution of dietary fat for soluble carbohydrates has received attention. Because IGF-I is integral to growth and cartilage development and because it is influenced by nutrition, the authors evaluated the effect of dietary fat substitution on metabolic endpoints and circulating GH and IGF-I in growing horses.
