Unusual manifestation of salmonellosis in a young foal (case report)
Diarrhea in a foal which is caused by Salmonella typhimurium is not unusual in foals. But this foal developed other clinical signs which are not obviously associated with the diarrhea, e.g. ischemic necrosis of distal limbs. A very interesting although fatal case!

A 5-month-old mixed-breed filly presented with diarrhea due to Salmonella typhimurium infection and subsequently developed pneumonia in addition to ischemic necrosis of distal limbs.

Pulmonary lesions were characterized by numerous discrete, disseminated pyogranulomas with intralesional fungal hyphae.

The morphologic characteristics of fungal hyphae were consistent with Aspergillus spp., and large numbers of A fumigatus were isolated from lung tissue via fungal culture.

Lesions in all 4 limbs were similar in distribution, duration, and severity and were characterized by coagulation necrosis accompanied by occasional thrombi in small vessels without evidence of thrombosis of larger limb arteries.

Thus, limb lesions are consistent with symmetrical peripheral gangrene, a potential complication of sepsis.

The farrier role in supporting horse owners to prevent laminitismembers
Emerging research highlights how, due to demographic changes in horse owner populations in Western societies, complex owner–horse relationships are leading to inappropriate horse care, including overnutrition, which in turn can lead to laminitis. Farriers, due to their regular visits, may be in a position to support owners in dealing with this problem. This study explored whether UK farriers have a role in working with horse owners to support horse welfare and prevent laminitis.
