Ion acid-base disturbances and associated mortality in dogs
Acid–base abnormalities are frequently encountered in veterinary emergency and critical care, but information regarding the prognostic value of these findings is limited. Several systems for analysing acid–base disturbances have been reported, but the prognostic abilities of these systems have not been compared in dogs. The objectives of this retrospective study were to determine if the commonly used acid–base interpretation methods (Henderson–Hasselbalch, Stewart and semi‐quantitative) have prognostic value, and to compare the performance of the three methods. A very interesting study, enrolling more than 1000 dogs.

A novel herpesvirus associated with serious eye problems in a great horned owl
Owls are not the classical patients seen in veterinary practices, but they are occasionally seen and need to be examined and treated if possible. An adult great‐horned owl (Bubo virginianus; GHOW) presented with a history of recurrent corneal ulceration of the right eye (OD). Findings included ulcerative superficial keratitis, proliferative conjunctivitis, and iris pigmentary changes. Finally, a novel herpesvirus was identified that caused the signs and was critical to choose the appropriate theray.

Giardia duodenalis in primatesmembers
Giardia duodenalis colonizes the gastrointestinal tract of a wide range of hosts, including humans and other primates. It is grouped into eight different Assemblages and, beyond that, into a number of sub‐Assemblages, defined ad hoc on the basis of genetic differences; these various groups are often considered to be associated with a specific restricted host range. The aim of this study was to use publicly available genotyping data to investigate the relatedness of human and non‐human primate (NHP) Giardia isolates in order to evaluate the usefulness of current taxonomic classification and to assess whether there is potential for zoonotic transmission between humans and NHP.

Unilateral cervical plexus block for prosthetic laryngoplasty in horses
Locoregional anaesthetic techniques can facilitate certain surgeries being performed under standing procedural sedation. The second and third spinal cervical nerves (C2, C3) are part of the cervical plexus and provide sensory innervation to the peri‐laryngeal structures in people; block of these nerves might permit laryngeal lateralisation surgery in horses.
This study describes the anatomical basis for an ultrasound‐guided cervical plexus block in horses and compares this block with conventional local anaesthetic tissue infiltration in horses undergoing standing prosthetic laryngoplasty.

Exercise-induced pulmonary haemorrhage in Thoroughbred racehorses
Exercise induced pulmonary haemorrhage (EIPH) is considered a progressive disease based on histopathology, but it is unknown if tracheobronchoscopic EIPH severity worsens over time. The aim of this study was to examine tracheobronchoscopic EIPH changes over time in a population of Thoroughbred racehorses. A secondary aim was to identify factors that affect changes in tracheobronchoscopic EIPH severity between observations.


PCV-3 in pig serum samples from Spainmembers
Porcine circovirus 3 (PCV‐3) is an emerging circovirus species that has recently been reported in different countries around the world, suggesting a widespread circulation. In this study, sera samples originating from 654 pigs of different production phases and clinical/pathological conditions, submitted for diagnostic purposes between 1996 and 2017, were randomly selected. How common is it?

Oral extended release hydrocodone as analgesia after TPLOmembers
Tibial plateau leveling osteotomy (TPLO) is a very popular technique to treat ruptured cranial cruciate ligaments in dogs, and it requires a balanced analgesia regimen after surgery. The aim of this study was to determine the efficacy of oral extended‐release hydrocodone compared with oral firocoxib for analgesia following tibial plateau leveling osteotomy surgery in dogs in a hospital setting.

25OH vitamin D3 serum concentration in dogs with acute polyradiculoneuritismembers
Do dogs with acute polyradiculoneuritis have lower serum 25‐hydroxy vitamin D3 concentration compared to a control group of dogs with idiopathic epilepsy? A very interesting question that was answered in this retrospective case–control study of 21 dogs with acute canine polyradiculoneuritis and 21 control dogs with idiopathic epilepsy.

Type 1 immune mediated polyarthritis in dogs and temporal relationship to vaccination members
The aim of this very interesting retrospective case–control study was to investigate whether there is a temporal relationship between vaccination and the onset of type 1 immune‐mediated polyarthritis in dogs - an important question which is often raised by the owners of affected dogs.
