Cabergoline to shorten interestrous intervals in dogs
Cabergoline is used in canine medicine for a few years. Is it also possible to shorten interestreous intervals in dogs which is desirable especially in breeding dogs? A study in 23 dogs shows: The mean number of days of cabergoline treatment until the onset of proestrus was 21.4Ā±2.9!

Two consecutive interestrous intervals (n=46) were recorded in 23 bitches of different breeds.

At varying times after day 100 from the onset of the second proestrus, cabergoline (5 Āµg/kg per os q 24 hours) was administered from early (n=11), mid- (n=10), and late (n=2) anestrus until 2 days after the beginning of the following proestrus.

Interestrous intervals (IEI) were significantly shorter in the cabergoline-treated time periods when compared to the nontreated IEI (184Ā±4.5 days versus 239Ā±4.5 days; P<0.01). The mean number of days of cabergoline treatment until the onset of proestrus was 21.4Ā±2.9 (least square means and standard error of the mean [LSMĀ±SEM]).

Mean cabergoline treatment durations beginning in early, mid-, and late anestrus were 27.4Ā±3.7, 17.6Ā±3.8, and 5Ā±3 days (LSMĀ±SEM), respectively.

A significant correlation was found between the stage of anestrus in which the treatments began and the duration of the treatments required to induce estrus (0.51, P=0.01).

Storage temperatures and container types and the urine protein : creatinine ratios
Preanalytic protein adsorption to polymer and glass container surfaces may decrease urine protein concentration measurements and urine protein: creatinine ratios (UPC). Does urine stored in PC or glass containers have lower UPC than urine stored in HP containers? The specific objective was to determine whether clinically relevant differences in UPC would be detected after storage in glass, PC, or HP containers using common storage times and temperatures. Twelve clientā€owned dogs with proteinuria helped to answer these important questions.
