Development of a Mule Grimace Scale and Use of Smart Halters to Recognize Pain in Mules Post-Castration
Researchers will define behavioral signs of pain in mules using a facial expression scale and a new technology, the Smart Halter™.
Researchers will validate an owner questionnaire designed to help them recognize and monitor the signs of chronic osteoarthritis pain in horses to improve care for horses suffering from this condition.
Researchers will investigate the effect of a commonly administered intravenous fluid, called hydroxyethyl starch, in horses undergoing surgery for colic, specifically looking at microcirculation, blood pressure and cardiac output.
Researchers will collect preliminary bench-top data on a novel oncolytic therapy for equine sarcoid tumors using a genetically modified virus that infects and breaks down cancer cells but not normal cells.
Researchers will quantify how horses adapt muscle function and limb and upper body movements to cope with lameness, providing a greater understanding of clinical signs that can guide assessment and earlier intervention.
Researchers will determine if stem cells from horse bone marrow can reduce bacterial biofilm formation and associated inflammation that cause treatment failure and tissue damage in horses with orthopedic infections.
