Novel technique for cementless total hip replacement in juvenile dogs
Cementless total hip replacement is performed in young dogs for many years. This new article describes the outcome after a minimum of 1 year for total hip replacement (THR) using BioMedtrix BFX™ biologic fixation implants in 20 skeletally immature dogs (6–10 months of age).

Medical records (November 2007–June 2010) of 20 dogs, 6–10 months old that had cementless THR were reviewed.

Preoperative, immediate, 6-week and >1-year postoperative radiographs were compared.

Clinical examination was performed at 6 weeks and >1 year postoperatively.

Owner questionnaire was obtained at final follow-up.

Cementless THR using BFX™ implants was performed because of debilitating coxofemoral pain, resulting from canine hip dysplasia, after unsatisfactory outcome with medical management.

Radiographs taken immediately, 6 weeks and at a mean of 29.8 months (range, 12–48 months) postoperatively revealed satisfactory implant positioning and stability.

Significant change in measured cranial–caudal femoral stem fill and level (P < .001 and P = .006, respectively) were recorded at 6 weeks postoperatively without clinical significance.

No further change in stem positioning occurred.

Acetabular cup orientation remained unchanged throughout follow-up.

Complications requiring further surgical intervention were not encountered.

One minor superficial infection was recorded and treated.

Lameness and pain on manipulation of the affected hip had greatly improved in all dogs by 6 weeks postoperatively.

Cementless THR can safely be performed in skeletally immature dogs, providing satisfactory return to normal joint function and implant survivability for at least a mean of 29.8 months.

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.
