The interpretation of clinicopathologic data from the equine athlete.

Author information

Department of Veterinary Clinical Medicine and Surgery, Washington State University, College of Veterinary Medicine, Pullman.


It is the purpose of this article to review much of the information that is available regarding the adjunctive use of clinicopathologic data in evaluations of performance horses by veterinarians. Wherever possible, distinctions are made between findings that pertain to racehorses and those that apply most specifically to horses involved in "submaximal" events like combined training and endurance races. It is hoped that the material presented will clarify some of the problems associated with the interpretation of this data, and possibly stimulate the dissemination of additional information that will further assist practitioners in this aspect of their work.
