Abstract

Road transport and physical exercise represent stressful stimuli which can lead to homeostasis disruption with direct impact on animal health status, welfare and physical performance of the athletic horse. Acupuncture is recognized as a practice modulating the physical well-being of athletes. In the present study the effect of acupuncture treatment on some hematochemical parameters in 5 Thoroughbred horses after road transport and exercise was evaluated. Horses competed in two official races. For each race animals were transported from their stables to the racetrack. Horses transported and competed in the first race represent the control group (CG). Two weeks later the same horses competed in the second race. Before road transport they were treated with acupuncture (AG). From animals blood samples were collected at rest (TPRE); after unloaded (TPOST), 30 minutes after unloaded (TPOST30), at rest in the transit stall (RPRE), at the end of the race (RPOST) and 30 minutes after the race (RPOST30).
