Enalapril versus placebo in canine idiopathic glomerulonephritis
Enalapril is a well-known blocker of the ACE system in dogs and cats. Is it also effective in the therapy of naturally occurring, idiopathic glomerulonephritis in dogs?

Twenty-nine adult dogs were included in a blinded, multicenter, prospective clinical trial with membranous (n = 16) and membranoproliferative (n = 13).

Dogs were randomly assigned to receive either EN (0.5 mg/kg PO q12-24h; n = 16) or placebo (n = 14) for 6 months (1 dog was treated first with the placebo and then with EN). All dogs were treated with low-dose aspirin (0.5-5 mg/kg PO q12-24h) and fed a commercial diet. At baseline, serum creatinine (SrCr), systolic blood pressure (SBP), and glomerular histologic grade were not different between groups, but the urine protein/creatinine ratio (UP/C) was greater in the EN group compared with the placebo group (8.7 +/- 4.4 versus 4.7 +/- 2.3).
After 6 months of treatment, the change in UP/C from baseline was significantly different between groups (EN = -4.2 +/- 1.4 versus 1.9 +/- 0.9 in the placebo group). When data were adjusted for changes in SrCr (SrCr X UP/C) a similar significant reduction was noted ( 2.2 +/- 15.2 versus 8.4 +/- 10.1). The change in SBP after 6 months of treatment also was significantly different between groups (EN = -12.8 +/- 27.3 versus 5.9 +/- 21.5 mm Hg in the placebo group).

Response to treatment was categorized as improvement (assigned a value of 2), no progression (assigned a value of 1), and progression (assigned a value of 0).

Response was significantly better in the EN group (1.4 +/- 0.8) compared with the placebo group (0.3 +/- 0.5).
These results suggest that EN treatment is beneficial in dogs with naturally occurring idiopathic GN.

Toceranib phosphate (Palladia®) in canine gastrointestinal stromal tumorsmembers
Gastrointestinal stromal tumors (GISTs) are uncommon intestinal neoplasms in the dog. Literature regarding adjunctive therapy for GISTs in dogs is sparse. High‐risk GISTs in humans respond to tyrosine kinase inhibition in the adjuvant setting. This recently online published study reviews cases of toceranib phosphate use in dogs with GISTs and provides initial assessment of possible biological activity. A secondary aim was to evaluate patient and tumor characteristics for possible prognostic value.
