Imbalances of the mineral metabolism and limb deformalities in the new born-foal

Published: 2002-12-31

Brief content of the article
The authors studied the possible relationship between imbalances in mineral metabolism of the growing foetus, new-born foal or the mare and the occurence of correctable limb deformalities in the foal. The study was executed with seven foals and fiv mares from a thoroughbred stud with a high incidence of limb deformalities. Mineral balances for especially cupper and zinc are discussed. The nutrition of the mare s was also evaluated.
Keywords: foals; mares; Zinc; cupper; limb deformalities.
