Dietary hyperparathyroidism in a herd of Andalusian horses
Hyperparathyroidism is a rare phenomenon in equine practice. In this article, a complete herd showed signs of a secondary hyperparathyroidism due to a mineral imbalance in the diet (low calcium and high phosphorus intake). All age groups were affected - even a three week-old suckling foal showed severe problems.

The herd of Andalusian horses clinical history and the laboratory findings were compatible with a diagnosis of Mares showed a marked increase in serum parathyroid hormone (PTH) approximately 10 times normal levels.

Serum PTH was marginally elevated in foals.

Clinical signs (unthriftiness, painful joints, lameness in one or more limbs, and stiff gait) were more pronounced in foals than in mares.

Two foals died and necropsy of one of them revealed extensive soft-tissue mineralization of arterial walls and pulmonary parenchyma.

Clinical signs in mares and foals resolved by 4 weeks after diet adjustment.

Novel therapeutic approach for mares with suspected uterine tubal blockagemembers
Prostaglandin E2 is one of the traditional therapeutics in horses with suspected uterine tubal blockage. This study describes a modified approach: the laparoscopic transection of restrictive bands of the mesosalpinx as a useful adjunct to the topical application of prostaglandin E2. Can it be recommended?
