Serum antibodies to βA1-crystallin and cataract formation in Cocker spanielsmembers
Can antibodies for lens βH-crystallins in the serum from the American Cocker Spaniel (ACS) presenting with and without cataracts and with and without uveitis be detected? A very interesting aspect of the pathogenesis. 73
American Cocker Spaniels and six normal Beagles were included in this study.

Canine osteosarcoma cells and aurora kinase inhibitorsmembers
Aurora kinase Inhibitors belong to the new generation of medications in treating tumor cells like canine osteosarcomaa. The authors of this new study evaluated the effect of Aurora kinase inhibitors AZD1152 and VX680 on canine osteosarcoma cells.

Survival and subsequent fertility of mares treated for uterine torsionmembers
Previous surveys have reported that mare and foal survival after correction of uterine torsion (UT) varies from 60 to 84% and from 30 to 54%, respectively. Furthermore, resolution via a standing flank laparotomy (SFL) has been associated with better foal, but not mare, survival. This recently online published study aimed to compare the success of SFL with other correction methods (e.g. midline or flank laparotomy under general anaesthesia; correction per vaginam). With interesting results!

Long-term compassionate use of oclacitinib in dogs with allergic skin diseasemembers
Oclacitinib is safe and effective for treating dogs with pruritus associated with allergic and atopic dermatitis, based on randomized clinical trials of up to 4 months duration. But unfortunately, allergic diseases currently can be managed but not cured, and in most cases a long-term therapy is indicated. This study assessed long-term safety, efficacy and quality of life of oclacitinib-treated dogs enrolled in a compassionate use programme including nearly 250 dogs.

Portable oxygen concentrator for treatment of hypoxemia during equine field anesthesiamembers
Hypoxemia is common during equine field anesthesia. The authors´ hypothesis was that oxygen therapy from a portable oxygen concentrator would increase PaO2 during field anesthesia compared with the breathing of ambient air. Fifteen yearling (250 – 400 kg) horses during field castration were included in this prospective clinical study.


Leptospirosis - the European consensus statementmembers
Leptospirosis is a zoonotic disease with a worldwide distribution affecting most mammalian species. Clinical leptospirosis is common in dogs but appears to be rare in cats. Both dogs and cats, however, can shed leptospires in the urine. This is problematic as it can lead to exposure of humans. The control of leptospirosis, therefore, is important not only from an animal but also from a public health perspective. The European consensus statement has been published recently.

Optimised injection technique for the navicular bursa in horsesmembers
Injection of the navicular bursa is commonly performed from the palmar aspect of the limb, which results in penetration of the deep digital flexor tendon (DDFT), possibly leading to lesions and infections. This prospective clinical and cadaveric study reports a radiographic guided injection from the lateral aspect of the limb that avoids puncture of the DDFT and assesses synovial and soft tissue penetration by the needle.

Common vasopressor drugs in septic shock-induced hypotension members
Are the commonly used vasopressor drugs like norepinephrine, dopamine, epinephrine and vasopressin really indicated to treat septic shock-induced hypotension in volume replete animals? An important question in intensive care medicine! The aim of this study was to review and appraise common vasopressor drugs used for this indication as well in human as in veterinary medicine.

Exposure of pigs to lead from contaminated zinc oxide members
High levels of lead, up to 3.3 mg/kg fresh weight, were detected in pig liver in Western Australia at the beginning of 2008. This followed the detection of lead at above the maximum level (ML) in a pig liver through the National Residue Survey (NRS). The contamination source was traced back to a zinc oxide feed additive used early post-weaning that contained in excess of 8% lead. The aim of this study was the confirmation of the source of lead contamination was obtained by comparing lead isotope ratios for the zinc oxide and the pig livers.
