Classification system for cleft lip and palate in dogsmembers
An easy-to-use classification that enables an accurate record of canine cleft lip and palate is fundamental for effective communication between professionals and researchers and optimal use of published information. The authors present how a classification system for human cleft lip and palate can be used to register spontaneous cases in dogs, highlighting its advantages.

Crystalloid Solutions and the Acid-Base Balance in Domestic Animals
Intravenous fluid therapy can alter plasma acid-base balance. The Stewart approach to acid-base balance is uniquely suited to identify and quantify the effects of the cationic and anionic constituents of crystalloid solutions on plasma pH. The plasma strong ion difference (SID) and weak acid concentrations are similar to those of the administered fluid, more so at higher administration rates and with larger volumes. This recently published study describes the effect of intravenously administered crystalloid solutions on acid-base balance in domestic animals.

Biuret versus refractometry methods to measure serum total proteins in ruminantsmembers
Determination of serum total protein concentration is commonly performed by the biuret method. Refractometric measurement is a faster and less expensive alternative but its accuracy has not been determined in ruminants. The purpose of the study was to compare the serum total protein concentrations in cattle, sheep, and goats measured by the biuret method with those obtained by refractometry. More than 200 samples were analyzed.

Atypical hemolymphoid neoplasia causing aberrant CD3 expression in a dogmembers
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. This is the first reported case of a monoclonal gammopathy secondary to a gastric EMP coupled with aberrant expression of CD3 in an aggressive plasmacytic tumor, and highlights the utility of molecular diagnostics for classifying atypical hemolymphoid neoplasms.

Cell-Free DNA and DNase Activity in Dogs with IMHAmembers
Immune-mediated hemolytic anemia (IMHA) in dogs has a high risk of thrombosis and is associated with marked neutrophilia and necrosis. Cell death and release of neutrophil extracellular traps contribute to increased serum concentrations of cell-free DNA, and in human autoimmune disease reduced DNase activity further increases cell-free DNA. Free DNA in blood has prothrombotic properties and could contribute to hypercoagulability in IMHA. The objective of this study was to evaluate if the cell-free DNA is elevated and DNase activity reduced in dogs with IMHA compared to healthy dogs.


Chronic Diarrhea in Dogs members
Chronic diarrhea (CD) is common in dogs, and information on frequency and distribution of primary and secondary causes is lacking. The objective of this retrospective study including 136 thirty-six client-owned dogs with CD (≥3 weeks duration) was to evaluate underlying causes and predictors of outcome in dogs with CD. A practice-relevant new publlication from Berlin.

Safety of a benazepril and pimobendan combination tablet in healthy dogsmembers
Both ACE inhibitors and pimobendan are commonly used in older dogs with myxomatous valve disease, and it has been discussed over a long period which drug may be superior. This recently online published study is extremely relevant for daily small animal practice since the objective of the study was to investigate the safety of a combination tablet of benazepril and pimobendan.

Pharmacokinetics of quinocetone in ducks after two routes of administrationmembers
Quinocetone (QCT), an antimicrobial growth promoter, is widely used in food-producing animals. However, information about pharmacokinetics (PK) of QCT in ducks still remains unavailable up to now. In this study, QCT and its major metabolites (1-desoxyquinocetone, di-desoxyquinocetone and 3-methyl-quinoxaline-2-carboxylic) in ducks were studied using a simple and sensitive UHPLC-MS/MS assay.

Tear fluid collection with ophthalmic sponges in dogs and catsmembers
The collection of tear fluid for diagnostic purposes is often very difficult in dogs and cats. This new study enrolling 10 healthy dogs and 10 healthy cats was to compare the use of two ophthalmic sponges for tear collection in dogs and cats. Can they be recommended?
