Abstract

Present research work was conducted on 51 horses of either sex. The carotene values in
buttress foot (231.00±18.08 μg/dl), contraction of flexor tendon (231.00±18.08 μg/dl), navicular
diseases (228.00 ± 10.44 μg/dl), osselets (209.75± 9.04μg/dl), ringbone (220.00 ± 6.02 μg/dl) and
sidebone (219.44 ± 5.06 μg/dl) were found to be significantly higher (P£0.05) than the mean value
(204.35 ± 6.20 μg/dl) of the normal animals. The vitamin-A values in buttress foot (7.75±0.22μg/
dl), contraction of flexor tendon (7.75± 0.22μg/dl), navicular diseases (7.69±0.13μg/dl), ringbone
(7.78±0.07μg/dl) and sidebone (7.84±0.06μg/dl) were found significantly lower (P ≤ 0.05) than the
mean values (7.99 ± 0.07 μg/dl) of the normal animals.
