Diarrhoea is defined as the increase of frequency and decrease in consistency of manure.
Diarrhoea is defined as the increase of frequency and decrease in consistency of manure. Two main types of diarrhoea are differentiated: acute (over the course of a few days) and chronic (more than 3 weeks). A sudden change in diet (turn out to pasture in spring) and parasitism are common causes of acute diarrhoea.
The severity of the affection depends on the cause of disease, however determining the exact diagnosis is often challenging. One has to keep in mind that foals are at higher risk as severe diarrhoea can quickly cause dehydration.
