英文摘要: Abstract(#br)The purpose of this study was to determine whether lactate dehydrogenase (LDH) activity in abdominal fluid could be used as a prognostic indicator in horses with colic. Lactate dehydrogenase activity was measured in 27 abdominal effusions from horses with colic presented to Murdoch University Veterinary Teaching Hospital using three different LDH test methods. Lactate in effusions was also measured in 11 of the horses. Lactate dehydrogenase activity was significantly different for each test method used—the ratio of Randox wet chemistry LDH lactate to pyruvate:Randox wet LDH pyruvate to lactate (P-L):IDEXX dry chemistry P-L was approximately 1:2:4. Lactate dehydrogenase activity in the abdominal effusions was significantly higher with all methods in the horses that died or...
