Surgical biopsy of the canine and feline pancreas - complications and results
Taking good pancreas biopsies can be a real challenge - postoperative and intraoperative complications are common and the result of the histopathological examination is sometimes disappointing. This new study assesses the immediate postoperative complications associated with pancreatic biopsy in dogs and cats and review the clinical relevance of biopsy findings.

Twenty-four dogs and 19 cats that had surgical pancreatic biopsy had sufficient detail in their clinical records and fulfilled the inclusion criteria.

Postoperative complications were seen in 10 cases of which 5 were suggestive of post-surgical pancreatitis.

Two patients were euthanased within 10 days of surgery because of the underlying disease; neither suffered postoperative complications.

Pancreatic pathology was found in 19 cases, 7 cases showed no change other than benign pancreatic nodular hyperplasia, and no abnormalities were seen in 18 cases.

Complications may be encountered following surgical pancreatic biopsy, although the risk should be minimal with good surgical technique.

Pancreatic biopsy may provide a useful contribution to case management but it is not clear whether a negative pancreatic biopsy should be used to rule out pancreatic disease.

Dogs were more likely to have no significant pathology found on pancreatic biopsy than cats, where chronic pancreatitis was the most common finding.

Reference intervals for blood parameters in Shetland Sheepdogsmembers
Several breeds have physiological peculiarities that induce variations in reference intervals (RIs) compared with the general canine population. Shetland sheepdogs (SSs) are reported to be more predisposed to different diseases (eg, hyperlipidemia, gallbladder mucocele, and hypothyroidism). Consequently, a breed‐specific approach is more often required. Thus, the aim of this study was to determine whether the RIs of the general canine population could be applied to that of SSs, and to generate breed‐specific RIs, where appropriate.
