Osteomyelitis associated with Bartonella henselae infection in a cat

Written by

  • Bartonella henselae DNA was amplified by PCR from peripheral blood
osteomielite1A 1-year-old male intact domestic shorthair cat was evaluated for acute onset non-weightbearing left forelimb lameness and generalized peripheral lymphadenopathy. CT identified a monostotic aggressive bone lesion with an incomplete fracture of the left radial metaphysis. Bone aspirates yielded osteoblasts with minimal nuclear atypia. Abdominal ultrasound revealed a nodular spleen and lymphadenopathy; cytologically, both contained lymphoid hyperplasia. A ...

Metaphyseal osteopathy in dogs: clinical signs and outcome

Written by

  • The most commonly recorded clinical signs were pyrexia, lethargy, pain, and being non-ambulatory
downloaddogThe aim of the present study was to describe the presenting signs, concurrent conditions, treatment and outcome of dogs with metaphyseal osteopathy.Multi-centre retrospective review of medical records from January 2009 to September 2018 at four referral centres to identify dogs with a radiographic diagnosis of metaphyseal osteopathy....

Relative adrenal insufficiency in hospitalized foals

Written by

  • Plasma ACTH concentrations were higher in septic and premature foals on admission compared to healthy controls
TAY3G1 new born foalSepsis is a major cause of morbidity and mortality in neonatal foals. Relative adrenal insufficiency (RAI), defined as an inadequate cortisol response to stress, has been associated with sepsis, prematurity, and poor outcome in newborn foals. In addition to cortisol, the adrenal gland synthesizes several biologically important steroids and steroid precursors, including aldosterone, androgens, and progestogens. However, concentration of these hormones du...

Diagnostic data of cats with chronic enteropathy

Written by

  • Hypoproteinemia was revealed in 24% of cats
enteropatia catFew studies have investigated total protein (TP) and serum protein electrophoresis (SPE) in cats with chronic enteropathy (CE). Cats diagnosed with CE were evaluated to investigate the relationships between TP, SPE and endoscopy, histopathology, and extraintestinal involvement. ...

Comparison of four different hematocrit assays in dogs

Written by

  • Albumin values outside reference limits can affect the conductivity method
ematocritoClinical decisions are influenced by hematocrit values. Centrifugation (reference standard), conductivity, optical and impedance methods are often used interchangeably to measure hematocrit. The effects of albumin, which are known to affect conductivity methods, have not been evaluated for limits of agreement (LOA) between hematocrit assays in small animals. ...

The utility of bile acids for the diagnosis of liver disease in exotic animals

Written by

  • Bile acid concentrations should be interpreted in context with other liver function parameters
acidi biliari esoticiThe synthesis of bile acids occurs during the degradation of cholesterol in hepatocytes. Thus, this analyte is expected to be a sensitive indicator of hepatocellular dysfunction or alterations in portal circulation. Bile acids can be quantified via an enzymatic reaction to a highly conserved moiety across species....
