Effects of ileocolic junction resection in dogs and cats

Written by

  • Long-term diarrhea, weight loss, and muscle loss were common consequences
ileocolic junctionThe aim of the study was to evaluate the effects of ileocecocolic junction (ICJ) resection on gastrointestinal signs, biochemical parameters, and nutritional variables in dogs and cats.Medical records of dogs and cats that underwent ICJ resection were reviewed, and clinical signs, laboratory abnormalities, and nutritional information were obtained. Additional follow-up information was obtained by contacting primary care veterinarians or owners. A subset of dogs ...

Sentinel lymph node mapping for canine mast cell tumour

Written by

  • Lymphangiography allowed the detection of the sentinel lymph node in 90% of MCTs
linfangiogr mastMast cell tumour (MCT) is a common cutaneous and subcutaneous neoplasia in dogs. It can metastasise to lymph nodes (LNs), and this adversely affects the prognosis and treatment. The study aims to evaluate the sentinel lymph node (SLN) mapping of MCTs with radiographic indirect lymphography. Dogs that underwent clinical staging were prospectively enrolled. Lipiodol was injected around the MCT or the surgical scar. After 24 h, LNs that picked up contrast were rad...

Effect of the administration of meloxicam on rabbit lymphocytes

Written by

  • A significant decrease in T: B cell ratio was found in all samples
rabbit meloxicamMeloxicam is a commonly used analgesic in rabbits. However, its possible impact on lymphocyte subpopulations remained unknown. The aim of the study was to investigate a possible effect of long-term administration of meloxicam on rabbit lymphocyte subpopulations. The study included 8 rabbits given meloxicam orally once daily (1 mg/kg BW) for 14 days and 8 rabbits as a control group. Peripheral blood samples were collected on day 0 (before the first dose of melox...

Feline lymphoma of the nervous system

Written by

  • Tumors developed as an extra-axial mass in 50% of cases
feline nervous lymphomaThe authors of this study aimed to describe the specific localization and anatomical pattern of 24 feline lymphomas of the nervous system for which the immunophenotype was identified by immunohistochemistry investigations to support the potential specific correlation between subtypes and anatomical patterns. Data showed that 10 tumors affected the spinal cord, 8 the brain, 4 the peripheral nerves, 1 involved both the brain and the spinal cord, and...

Amino acids metabolism in canine chronic hepatitis

Written by

  • Proline, phenylalaine and tyrosine progressively increased with the histological severity
chronic epatiteIn humans, chronic liver disease may cause alterations in amino acids (AAs) metabolism, with serum branched-chain AAs (BCAAs) decreasing and aromatic AAs (AAAs) increasing. A reduced Fischer ratio (BCAAs/AAAs) has been found to be associated with hepatic fibrosis and is useful for assessing prognosis in human patients. In veterinary medicine, few studies have been performed, and in contrast to human patients, dogs with different kinds of hepatopathy tend to show both ...

Postoperative complications in equine colic surgery

Written by

  • There was a substantial lack of classifications of postoperative complications
equine colicPostoperative complications frequently occur following equine colic surgery but there is a lack of consistency in their definitions and reporting. The aim of this study was to perform a scoping review to identify current evidence on the definitions and classifications of postoperative complications in equine colic surgery.A scoping review was conducted in CAB, Web of Science, Scopus and PubMed databases using a PCC (Population-equids, Concept-complications, adverse events, ...
