Abstract

Plasma biochemical values were determined in 380 samples obtained from 22 clinically normal Brasileiro de Hipismo fillies from birth to 24 months old. Statistical analysis showed higher concentrations of cholesterol between 0-4 hours and 24 hours after birth, while glucose and triglycerides with 3-4 days of age. Glucose concentrations decreased until nine months old, then remained fairly constant. Cholesterol and triglycerides decreased gradually with advancing of age until 13 months and then stabilized. It was concluded that the plasma biochemical values were influenced by age, particularly in the newborn foals considered in the study.
