Newborn foals are entirely dependent on antibodies absorbed following ingestion of mare’s  colostrum for protection against infectious diseases. After 24 hours a foal is considered to have failure of transfer of passive immunity (FTPI), if circulating immunoglobulin levels are less than 400 mg/dl. FTPI occurs in 10 to 20% of newborn foals (i). It is the most common immunodeficiency disorder in horses and associated with an increased risk of infectious disease and mortality, which is why routine monitoring is recommended, to allow early detection and treatment (ii).
