Accurate prediction of the parturition date in dogs
Many dog owners or breeders want to know the parturition date of their bitch as precise as possible. Unfortunately, the length of gestation is highly variable when measured from the day of mating, thus prediction of parturition may be greatly inaccurate when determined from this point. This brandnew study from Italy can be of enormous help: The colleagues found a precise method to determine the exact date via ultrasound measurements.

The ability to precisely predict the duration of pregnancy is of practical importance for managing parturition or planning caesarean section and this review analyses the methods that can be used to accurately forecast the day of parturition.

At the time of breeding, determination of the luteinizing hormone surge and the initial rise in progesterone provide reliable information on gestational length of the bitch, but when pregnancy is ascertained, ultrasonography is the most useful tool to predict the delivery day.

In fact, by ultrasonographic measurements of the extra-foetal and foetal structures an accurate prediction can be made both in early and late pregnancy. Details what to measure can be found in the full article.

Acute echocardiographic effects of sotalol in dogs with ventricular arrhythmias
Sotalol is a commonly used antiarrhythmic drug that may alter ventricular function. The objective of this recently published study was to determine the effect of sotalol on echocardiographic indices of ventricular systolic function in dogs with ventricular arrhythmias.
Thirty‐five client‐owned dogs with ventricular arrhythmias were enrolled.

  • Proteasome inhibitors for canine and human osteosarcomamembers
  • Pharmacokinetics of a novel mirtazapine transdermal ointment in catsmembers
  • Bacterial contamination in 50% dextrose vials after multiple puncturesmembers
  • Sotalol and the ventricular systolic function in dogs with ventricular arrhythmiasmembers
  • Life-threatening arterial haemorrhage during nephrectomymembers
  • Update to the chinchilla retinamembers
  • Vocal fold granulomas in brachycephalic dogsmembers
  • Extracellular vesicles in mammary cancer of dogs and catsmembers
  • Immunocytochemical assay using aqueous humor to diagnose feline infectious peritonitis members
  • Microbiota of traumatic, open fracture wounds and the mechanism of injury members
  • False-positive CT and radiography results for bronchial collapse in healthy dogsmembers
  • Variability of SDMA in apparently healthy dogsmembers
