Burns in horses

Burns in horses can be caused by a horse being trapped within a burning barn/stable, a road traffic accident, electrocution or lightning strike, or contact with hot water or chemicals.

Severe burns are followed by “burn shock”, which resembles hypovolemic shock, with a dramatic increase in vascular permeability and release of various mediators (cytokines, prostaglandins, NO, vasoactive leukotrienes, serotonin, histamine and ROS).
