Laparoscopic-assisted Gastropexy and the Gastrointestinal Transit Time in Dogsmembers
Prophylactic gastropexy has been promoted as a means of preventing gastric volvulus during gastric dilatation and volvulus (GDV) syndrome. Little is known about the impact of gastropexy on gastrointestinal transit time. Does the commonly used Laparoscopic-assisted gastropexy (LAG) alter gastrointestinal transit times when comparing gastric (GET), small and large bowel (SLBTT), and whole gut transit times (TTT) before and after surgery?

Transpalpebral ultrasonographic evaluation and measurement of the optic nerve members
The optic nerve is hard to evaluate by diagnostic imaging. The objective of this online published new prospective, observational study was to develop a reference range for ultrasonographically measured optic nerve sheath diameter (ONSD-US) in dogs. The authors hypothesized that ONSD-US can be measured reliably and is associated with weight but not age, sex, or body condition score (BCS), and that the relationship between weight and ONSD-US in dogs is allometric due to canine size variations.

Squamous cell carcinoma mimicking orbital myofibroblastic sarcomamembers
Squamous cell carcinomas are quite commen in dogs, and the localisation at the orbita is not rare. The objective of this recently published study was to describe the clinical presentations of patients diagnosed with ocular adnexal or orbital squamous cell carcinoma (SCC), which possess features similar to feline restrictive orbital myofibroblastic sarcoma (FROMS).

Unusual case of feline acute corneal hydropsmembers
A 1-year-old, female spayed, domestic shorthair cat presented for blepharospasm of the right eye. Slit-lamp biomicroscopic examination showed focal corneal ulceration and presumptive keratomalacia of the right eye. Examination of the left eye was normal apart from a focal endothelial opacity. And, unfortunately, the problem was bilateral.

Penile and preputial squamous cell carcinoma in the horse members
Squamous cell carcinoma (SCC) is the most common tumour of the penis and prepuce of the horse and is found mainly in older animals. Reports on breed predilection for penile tumour formation are equivocal but castration, coat colour, poor genital hygiene and various infectious agents have been suggested to predispose to the development of SCC. This review describes the clinical and pathological features of penile and preputial SCC in the horse and proposes a standard staging system.


Shock index in identifying acute blood loss in healthy dogsmembers
Does the shock index (SI) increase following blood donation and is it a more sensitive assessment of acute blood loss as heart rate (HR), blood pressure, and plasma Lactate? An interesting question! 20 client-owned clinically normal dogs were enrolled in this prospective study.

Correlation of direct in-house cerebrospinal fluid cytology with commercial pathology results members
In-house diagnostics are commonly used in veterinary practices, often allowing a quick diagnosis and thus the start of an adequate therapy. The aim of this online published new study was to investigate the correspondence between in-house direct cytological assessment of cerebrospinal fluid and results from a commercial veterinary pathology laboratory.

3 Serological Tests for Early Detection Of Leptospira-specific Antibodies members
Leptospirosis in dogs is a disease of global importance. Early detection and appropriate therapeutic intervention are necessary to resolve infection and prevent zoonotic transmission. However, its diagnosis is hindered by nonspecific clinical signs and lack of rapid diagnostic tests of early infection. Recently, 2 rapid point-of-care tests (WITNESS Lepto [WITNESS Lepto, Zoetis LLC, Kalamazoo, MI, USA] and SNAP Lepto [SNAP Lepto, IDEXX Laboratories, Westbrook, ME, USA]) for detection of Leptospira-specific antibodies in canine sera were developed. This recently online published article compares three systems for early diagnosis.

CT diagnosis of fatigue fracture of Mt 3 in young adult horsesmembers
Two young adult endurance horses were presented for investigation of sudden-onset forelimb lameness during competition. Clinical examination revealed a severe forelimb lameness and pain on palpation of the proximal palmar metacarpal area. Initial radiographic survey of the affected forelimb was unremarkable in both cases. A week of box rest resulted in only a mild improvement in the lameness. A second radiographic examination did not reveal any significant abnormalities. The history is very suspicious for a fracture, especially a fatigue fracture. How was it diagnosed and treated finally?

  • Optimizing MRI results of the spinemembers
    Magnetic resonance (MR) imaging is generally considered to be the best imaging modality for the spine because of its excellent tissue contrast and multiplanar imaging capability; however, good technique is vital in order to avoid nondiagnostic or even misleading images. This publications gives a variety of helpful advices to optimize the results!
