Pituitary-adrenocortical adjustments to transport stress in horses with previous different handling and transport conditions
Aim: The changes of the hypothalamic pituitary adrenal (HPA) axis response to a long distance transportation results in increase of adrenocorticotropic hormone (ACTH) and cortisol levels. The purpose of the study was to quantify the level of short-term road transport stress on circulating ACTH and cortisol concentrations, related to the effect of previous handling and transport experience of horses. Materials and Methods: The study was performed on 56 healthy horses after short-term roaddoi:10.14202/vetworld.2016.856-861 pmid:27651674 fatcat:mv74segasbfhnlych5hjgqjvvq
