Abstract

This paper reviews the literature on the effect of diet on plasma total carbon dioxide concentration ([TCO2]) in horses. Several studies have shown that dietary cation-anion difference (DCAD) influences plasma [TCO2], with a DCAD greater than 300mEq/kg been associated with metabolic alkalosis. However, there is no evidence to show that died alone is sufficient cause an elevation in plasma [TCO2] that is sufficient to result in an offence under the rules of racing.
