An Introduction to the NEW Foal IgG test

The latest edition to the VeraSTAT-V testing menu is the foal IgG test. Essential IgG antibodies are not transferred maternally to a foal within the womb, meaning the foal is born with no immune system to defend itself from potential bacterial infections outside the womb. Low IgG levels can lead to further complications such as pneumonia and arthritis.

The new born foal only has 24-48 hours in which its intestinal mucosa remains permeable enough to absorb the antibodies, it is therefore crucial to measure whether a foal has received enough IgGs during this timeframe to protect its immune system until it is old enough to produce its own.

Why this test is essential 

The VeraSTAT-V device measures quantitative levels of IgG in blood to determine whether a sufficient transfer of antibodies have been achieved. Ideally the IgG levels should exceed 800mg/dL2. Levels below 400 mg/dL indicate inadequate passive transfer and the need for IgG supplementation.

Foals with low IgG levels are usually unable to fight infection and are therefore more likely require veterinary intervention. In this case immunoglobins should be tested regularly to ensure that enough antibodies have been received before the foal can be discharged.

An Introduction to the NEW VeraSTAT-V

The latest edition to the Randox Veterinary diagnosis panel is the VeraSTAT-V, a convenient stable-side device designed to detect the earliest signs of inflammation. The VeraSTAT-V measures levels of Serum Amyloid A (SAA), the fastest blood marker to rise in response to inflammation, quickly and accurately.

The VeraSTAT-V device measures quantitative levels of SAA in blood distinguishing systematic infection from injury prone inflammation. Highly accurate results help owners to make informed decisions about the next course of action.

Working examples include monitoring potential inflammatory injuries of a competition horse which has undergone a rigorous training schedule, while high levels of SAA have been detected in foals with sepsis or localised infections, allowing for the early detection of any abnormalities.

Superior Performance & Unique Diagnostic Veterinary Reagents

CRP (C-Reactive Protein) is an acute phase protein produced by the liver in response to tissue injury, infection, or other inflammation. In animals, serum levels increase within 4-6 hours of such events, making CRP a much earlier indicator than other acute phase reactants.

Canine CRP is used when inflammation is suspected and allows the extent of inflammation to be determined. Used in conjunction with physical examination of signs and symptoms. It can be used to determine acute inflammatory conditions and to detect a relapse of an immune mediated disease or flare-up of a chronic inflammatory disease.

Bile acids are compounds that are made in the liver and stored in the gall bladder. Bile acids help with digestion of foods, particularly fat. Bile acids are measured to determine liver function and performance; elevated levels of bile acids in the blood are a result of ineffective reabsorption by the liver after digestion, and as such indicate that the liver cells are not functioning well. Randox Bile Acids test allows for liver function issues to be detected quickly, allowing early treatment and enabling the liver to regenerate before irreversible damage occurs.

D-3 Hydroxybutyrate (Ranbut) is a major ketone body in the blood produced when fatty acids in the liver are metabolised for energy. Elevated levels of ketones are referred to as ketosis, and occur when insufficient energy intake results in negative energy balance; ketosis can be toxic and damaging to the kidneys and liver. Many animals suffer an increased risk of ketosis as a result of high energy demands during lactation, pregnancy and birthing.

A major complication associated with ketosis is pregnancy toxemia in ewes or twin lamb disease, a metabolic disorder caused by insufficient nutrients and severe energy shortage.

Glutathione Peroxidase is an antioxidant enzyme that helps protect the body from free radicals. It contains selenium, an important trace element that is essential for enabling selenium-containing proteins, such as glutathione peroxidase, to function correctly.

The Randox Ransel test is used to measure glutathione peroxidase activity to determine functional selenium deficiency; it is considered more accurate than measuring selenium levels directly as low selenium concentration does not necessarily mean an animal is selenium deficient.

Total Antioxidant Status (TAS) is the assessment of the overall antioxidant function in the body. This is determined with the measurement of the total amount of antioxidants circulating the body. Different forms of antioxidants include those which inhibit the formation of free radicals, those which destroy free radicals, and those which repair the cells damaged as a result of free radical attack; a reduction in either of these components can compromise the body’s total antioxidant capacity.

Assessing an animals total antioxidant status is crucial as a reduction in total antioxidant status inhibits defence.
