Caude equina syndrome in dogs - who is at risk?
Cauda equina syndrome (CES) is a common orthopedic problem in dogs, affecting especially male dogs and large breeds. This very informative study including several thousand dogs gives interesting new informations: For example, a lumbosacral transitional vertebra predisposes for CES, and German Shepherds are eight times more likely to develop the CES than other breeds...

The association between the occurrence of a lumbosacral transitional vertebra (LTV) and the cauda equina syndrome (CES) in dogs was investigated.

In 4000 control dogs without signs of CES, 3.5% had an LTV, while in 92 dogs with CES, 16.3% had an LTV.

The lesion causing CES always occurred between the last true lumbar vertebra and the LTV.

Dogs with an LTV were eight times more likely to develop CES than dogs without an LTV.

German Shepherd dogs were eight times more likely to develop CES compared with other breeds.

Male dogs were twice as likely to develop CES than females.

Dogs with an LTV develop CES 1–2 years earlier than dogs without an LTV.

Long-term outcome of dogs with primary immune-mediated thrombocytopeniamembers
Primary immune‐mediated thrombocytopenia (IMTP) is a life-threatening condition which is occasionally seen in dogs. Also many of them respond to intensive therapy, the incidence of relapse may be underestimated. The objectives of this new study were to determine the incidence of relapse after discharge from the hospital in dogs with a diagnosis of presumed primary immune‐mediated thrombocytopenia, risk factors associated with relapse and whether or not indefinite use of immunosuppressive medication influences risk of relapse.
