Clostridium difficile was isolated from horses with diarrhoea at a veterinary medical teaching hospital. The disease course in these horses paralleled that seen in human patients with antibiotic-associated diarrhoea. Previous antibiotic use was significantly higher in C. difficile-positive horses with diarrhoea compared to C. difficile negative horses. Survival was significantly lower in C. difficile-positive horses.
