Plasma vitamin and mineral concentrations in Greater Flamingos as influenced by diet change

Written by

  • Plasma concentrations of selected vitamins, minerals and total protein were measured
Flamant rose. Famille des PhoenicoptÈridÈs. Ordre : PhoenicoptÈriformesThe greater flamingo (Phoenicopterus roseus) is often maintained in managed care. Although values for plasma concentrations of minerals and vitamins have been published for this species, limited studies investigate the effects of diet changes on these values.Plasma concentrations of selected vitamins (A [and the provitamin A carotenoid β-carotene] and E), minerals (Ca, Cu, Fe, K, Mg, Mn, Na, ...

Outcome in dogs surgically treated for hepatic abscessation

Written by

  • Peritoneal effusion was documented in 32/38 dogs preoperatively
hepatic disease in dogsThe aim of this study was to report outcomes following surgical treatment of hepatic abscessation in dogs.Records from 6 institutions were evaluated for dogs undergoing surgical treatment for hepatic abscessation between 2010 and 2020. Signalment, clinical signs, medical therapy, surgical treatment, and postoperative outcome was obtained from medical records. Long-term outcome was recorded when possible. Median survival time was asse...

Serum amyloid A and other clinicopathological variables in cats with lymphoma

Written by

  • Median SAA concentrations were significantly higher in non-nasal compared with nasal lymphoma
image 71061 800Serum amyloid A (SAA) concentrations are increased in cats with lymphoma vs healthy cats; however, the association between SAA concentrations and prognosis in cats with lymphoma is unclear. The aim of this study was to evaluate if SAA concentrations were different in cats with nasal vs non-nasal lymphoma, if SAA concentrations are prognostic in patients treated with high-dose chemotherapy and if SAA concentrations are correlated with other clinicopa...

Evaluation of serum concentration of acute-phase proteins in foals with rhodococcosis

Written by

  • Rhodococcosis increased the serum concentration of haptoglobin and serum amyloid A
foal sleeping in pastureEarly detection of Rhodococcus equi pneumonia in foals is essential for horse health and for veterinarians. This study aimed to demonstrate the usefulness of assessing the serum concentration of acute-phase proteins (APPs) in the early diagnosis of pneumonia.The study evaluated APPs in 19 Arabian foals with R. equi pneumonia and compared them with 18 normal Arabian foals in equestrian clubs in Tabriz, Iran. Affected foals were iden...

Written by

  • The common presenting complaint for dogs with large NFSM causing mass effect was mentation changes
ipofisi caneThe aim of this study was to characterize the clinical features, neurological examination findings, diagnostic imaging results, histopathological findings, and outcome following transsphenoidal hypophysectomy (TSH) in dogs with nonfunctional sellar masses (NFSM).Medical records of dogs that underwent TSH for a NFSM were reviewed for clinical signs, physical and neurological examination findings, diagnostic imaging results, endocrine testing, surgery report...

Primary intranasal perivascular wall tumors in cats

Written by

  • To describe the pathologic and immunohistochemical features of 2 cases of feline intranasal mesenchymal tumors
cat nose 624x442Perivascular wall tumors (PWTs) are common well-known canine mesenchymal tumors. The term PWT has not yet been applied to cats; only 2 cases of feline soft tissue hemangiopericytomas (HEPs) are available. In human medicine, sinonasal HEP-like tumor/glomangiopericytoma (SHPCL/GP) and intranasal solitary fibrous tumor (SFT) are well-known mesenchymal tumors with staghorn vasculature and low malignant potential; however, these entities have not been ...

Hemangiosarcoma of the nasal planum in cats

Written by

  • Palliative radiation therapy was used to decrease the risk of recurrence
emangiosarcoma gattoNasal planum tumors are rare in cats, with squamous cell carcinoma over-represented. Other skin tumors have been reported in this location and though hemangiosarcoma frequently occurs on the skin of the head, these tumors localized to the nasal planum have not been specifically reported. The objectives of this study were to report the clinical findings and outcomes in cats diagnosed with hemangiosarcoma of the nasal planum. Medical records from four dif...

Retrospective study of sternal lymphadenopathy in dogs

Written by

  • Sarcoma was the most common tumor type
tc dog sternale linfoSternal lymph nodes (SLNs) drain a multitude of regions in dogs, including the pectoral and shoulder region, the thoracic wall and mammary glands, the mediastinum, thymus, diaphragm, and the ventral abdominal wall and peritoneal cavity. Neoplastic conditions of these regions can lead to sternal lymphadenopathy. The aim of this study was to assess the most frequent localizations of the primary neoplasia and the most frequent tumor types in dogs with sternal...

Complications and long-term outcomes for limb fractures in pet rabbits

Written by

  • Long bone fractures accounted for the majority of all fractures
coniglio fratture arti copiaLimb fractures represent the most common orthopaedic disease in pet rabbits. However, only a few studies have evaluated therapeutic details of limb fractures. There are no data available for long-term outcomes of limb fracture treatment.The medical records of six institutions were reviewed retrospectively to identify cases of traumatic limb bone fractures in pet rabbits between 1999 and 2020. The medical records (n = 387) were analysed for det...

Radiographic features of cardiogenic pulmonary oedema in cats

Written by

  • Caudal pulmonary artery dilation were found in 77% of patients
edema gattoThe aims of this study were to describe the radiographic features of cardiogenic pulmonary oedema (CPE) in a large group of cats with left-sided cardiac disease, and to determine the association between the radiographic features of CPE and the underlying cardiac disease.Thoracic radiographs of cats with CPE and echocardiographic evidence of left-sided cardiac disease and left atrial enlargement (LAE) were reviewed, and cardiac silhouette, pulmonary vessels and pulmonary paren...
