In the presence of clinical signs of disease, haematological examinations, performed on sequestrated (EDTA) blood samples, may reveal abnormalities suggesting anaemia, haemoconcentration, bacterial or viral infections, parasitic or allergic conditions. These examinations may also be valuable as part of a preventive medicine programme for groups of horses, when examined on a regular routine basis, and interpreted carefully. This approach may provide useful information which can be used as a basis for advice to trainers of race and performance horses.
