Erythrocyte vitamin B, and B6 dependent enzymes in adult and newborn Thoroughbred horses

AbstractIn order to assess the Thoroughbred horses nutritional status as to riboflavin and pyridoxine, 10 adults and 30 newborns were investigated. In both adults and newborns, riboflavin intake was sufficient to meet their nutritional
needs; however, a moderate pyridoxine deficiency was detected amongst the adult horses, but not in the newborns. This findings suggests that a pyridoxine supplementation to adult horses may be necessary to keep their nutritional poise.
