Bilateral salivary adenocarcinoma with multiple metastases in a cat
Salivary gland tumors sometimes occur in dogs but they are very rare in cats. The patient described in this case report was presented with very unspecific clinical signs like coughing and dysphagia so that the diagnosis was difficult to do. Very informative case report from Italy.

A 9-year-old neutered male domestic shorthair cat was presented because of coughing, dysphagia, and prostration. Examination revealed firm bilateral anterocervical swellings extensively adhered to the surrounding tissues.

Anisocoria with left-side miosis was also evident.

X-ray and ultrasound examinations along with a fine-needle aspiration biopsy were performed.

Slides were stained with May-Grunwald Giemsa, and a diagnosis of salivary gland carcinoma was made. At surgery, the tumor was found to involve both submandibular salivary glands as well as adjacent lymph nodes and surrounding tissues.

The cat was euthanized and necropsy was performed.

The majority of tissues and organs examined histologically, including mandibular and retropharyngeal lymph nodes, soft palate, laryngopharynx and lungs, contained neoplastic cells whose appearance was consistent with adenocarcinoma.

Bilateral salivary adenocarcinoma has not previously been reported in cats, and extensive metastases are rare.

Variability of SDMA in apparently healthy dogsmembers
Symmetric dimethylarginine (SDMA) is a screening tool for early kidney dysfunction and monitoring treatment in cases of chronic kidney disease (CKD). There are no current studies describing the suitability of this test for use with published population‐based reference intervals. The objectives of this study were to determine the components of biological variability, the index of individuality (IOI), the critical difference between sequential measurements (CD) and the number of measurements required to assess the homeostatic set point (HSP), for both SDMA and serum creatinine (sCr), in apparently healthy dogs.
