Congenital lipoblastoma in a neonate calf
Lipoblastoma is a rare benign tumour of adipose tissue that usually occurs in young children. Although around 100 cases of lipoblastoma have been reported in humans, no report has been previously described in animals - until now!

This case report describes the clinical and histopathological findings of a congenital lipoblastoma located at the tail base of a 2-day-old male calf.

Grossly, the mass was pink with a partly ulcerated and haemorrhagic surface.

The calf showed no neurological deficits. Radiographs of the vertebral column revealed no abnormalities, and surgical excision was performed.

Histopathology of the mass was consistent with lipoblastoma.

The calf was followed up for 13 months and found to be healthy with no signs of recurrence.

To the best of the authors’ knowledge, this is the first case of lipoblastoma in the veterinary literature.

Lipoblastoma should thus be considered in the differential diagnosis list for congenital adipose tissue tumours in animals.

Milk/plasma ratio and milk and plasma pharmacokinetics of amoxicillin in lactating cowsmembers
This study was conducted to determine the passage ratio of amoxicillin into milk and its pharmacokinetics in milk and plasma after intramuscular administration. Five healthy dairy cows (Holstein, weighing 450–500 kg, aged 2–4 years) were used in this study. They received single intramuscular amoxicillin at a dose of 14 mg/kg body weight.
