Parasagittal fractures of the proximal phalanx in Thoroughbred racehorses members
Thirty years have elapsed since the last published review of outcome following fracture of the proximal phalanx in Thoroughbred racehorses in the UK and contemporary results are needed to be able to advise of expected outcome. The objectives of this study were to collect and analyse outcome data following repair of fractures of the proximal phalanx in Thoroughbred racehorses in the UK. Of course, data are relevant only to Thoroughbred racehorses in the UK. But the results are also interesting for other horses and veterinarians dealing with such a fracture.

Classification of Involuntary Movements in Dogsmembers
Involuntary movements in dogs are not too rare in daily practice, but often there is a lack of knowledge in their correct classification. This recently published rview is very helpful especially in characterising myoclonus and myotonia.

Benazepril and the Survival of Dogs with Chronic Kidney Diseasemembers
Chronic kidney disease (CKD) is an important cause of morbidity and mortality in dogs. Various studies have been performed to evaluate the use ACE inhibitors to prolong survival time in chronic heart diseases. This recently online published study enrolling 49 client-owned dogs with CKD evaluates the efficacy in prolonging survival and safety of benazepril administration to dogs with CKD.

Standardised exercise testing in reining horsesmembers
Exercise testing can be useful to evaluate poor performance, as a preventative medicine tool, and in the assessment of training progression. A comprehensive exercise testing protocol that simultaneously evaluates common causes of poor performance has not been described in reining horses. The objective of this study was to describe the results of a standardised exercise testing protocol in reining horses.

Atypical hemolymphoid neoplasia in an old dog members
A 10-year-old crossbred dog was presented with a 6-week history of hematemesis, melena, anorexia, and lethargy. Clinical evaluation revealed a gastric mass with a regional lymphadenomegaly as well as a monoclonal gammopathy manifesting as hyperglobulinemia. How do these findings fit together?


Visual outcome after corneal transplantation in horsesmembers
Corneal perforation and iris prolapse are the most common indication for corneal transplantation in horses. This study looks at the results, especially the visual outcome of horses presented with iris prolapse and treated with penetrating keratoplasty alone and penetrating keratoplasty in combination with overlying conjunctival or amniotic membrane grafting.

Glaucoma associated with uveal cysts and goniodysgenesis in three American Bulldogsmembers
The authors present a series of three American Bulldogs with clinical signs of glaucoma and intraocular inflammation accompanied by bilateral uveal cysts and abnormal gonioscopic findings. All dogs proved refractory to medical management and were enucleated. Histopathologic findings were similar in all three cases. An underdiagnosed disease in this breed?

Radiography and sonography of the abdomen in healthy ferretsmembers
Ferrets have become very popular pets over the last decades, and most owners ask for the same diagnostic procedures like ultrasonography and radiography as in other pets. Unfortunately, there is a lack of informations especially regarding the diagnostic Imaging of the Spleen and the abdominal lymphnodes. The aim of this new study was to describe the radiographic and ultrasonographic characteristics of the spleen and abdominal lymph nodes in more than 50 clinically healthy ferrets.

Diffuse leptomeningeal histiocytic sarcoma in the cerebrospinal fluid members
Two adult male castrated dogs were evaluated for progressive paraparesis and ataxia. Neurologic examination showed severe ataxia, delayed proprioceptive placement in the pelvic limbs, pain upon palpation of the lumbar spine as well as facial paresis in one dog, and decreased withdrawal reflex of the pelvic limbs in the other dog. Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) in both dogs showed diffuse meningeal and intramedullary lesions. However, no evidence of a mass was found. Biopsies could not be performed safely due to the location of the lesions.
These cases emphasize the potential critical importance of CSF analysis in providing an antemortem diagnosis of neoplasia in neurologic patients.
