First gastric carcinoid in a cat
An old cat with chronic vomitus and chronic renal failure. Nothing else to diagnose?! Not in this cat: it was suffering from a gastric carcinoid, and the complete excision stopped the vomitus immediately, but unfortunately did not improve the kidney function. A very interesting case description!

A geriatric domestic shorthair cat was presented for evaluation of chronic vomiting. Chronic renal failure was diagnosed on the basis of physical examination findings and results of a serum biochemical profile and urinalysis.

Endoscopically obtained gastric biopsies were suggestive of a carcinoid tumor.

Subsequently, an exploratory celiotomy with partial gastrectomy was performed.

Histopathological and electron microscopic analysis of surgical biopsy specimens confirmed the diagnosis of a gastric carcinoid, which has not been previously reported in the cat.

Following complete excision, the cat remained clinically stable and free of signs of gastrointestinal disease for 4 months before requiring treatment for progressive renal failure.

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.
