Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

This Special Issue of Animals is aimed at providing open access availability to the latest information for clinicians and investigators regarding intensive and critical care of sick equine neonates. Equine neonatology is of special interest to many of our most talented veterinarians, and we will tap into their expertise and expanded knowledge base to publish both broad and specific review articles, original hypothesis-driven research, retrospective studies of interest and case series that introduce new topics or problems. The goal of this special focus section is to provide a platform for scientists and clinical researchers to share recent advances in understanding equine newborn and neonatal disorders.

Topics for this call for papers include but are not restricted to:

  • The epidemiology, pathophysiology, diagnosis and treatment of equine newborn/neonatal sepsis and neonatal encephalopathy, including endocrine transitions
  • Causes of and fetal/newborn problems associated with prematurity
  • Renal transition from fetus to newborn to neonate
  • Cardio-respiratory transition from fetus to newborn to neonate
  • Gastrointestinal function in health and disease including studies of ‘gut closure’ and development of the GI microbiome
