AbstractThe aim of the study is to investigate the effect of running at different speeds (walk, trot, canter, and gallop) on the synovial fluid constituents which had been aspirated from the mid- carpal joint of each horse before and after running. The study was conducted on ten Iraqi Arabian horses in Arabic horses' center, Al-Qadisiya University. The synovial fluid samples were drawn aseptically and transferred directly to the clinical pathological laboratory examinations. Many physical and biochemical markers was studied, clarity, color, pH, viscosity, spontaneous clot formation, glucose (mg/dl), total protein (g/dl), alkaline phosphatase enzyme (IU/L) and WBC count. The results showed turbidity, dark yellow color, low pH, low viscosity and increase of spontaneous clot information in various degrees especially in case of canter and gallop. The glucose was decreased, while total protein, alkaline phosphatase and (WBCs) count was increased significantly at (p<0.05). .
