Gastric Outflow Obstruction After Ingestion of an Industrial-Strength Wood Glue in a Dog
Ingestion of foreign bodies happens very often in dogs, leading to obstruction of the gastric outflow and requiring surgery in the majority of the cases. This case report describes an uncommon foreign body, but it seems to be more common than previously thought: the ASPCA reports 14 of these cases.

A 2-year-old, male, mixed-breed dog presented with a 12-day history of vomiting, depression, and weight loss after ingestion of industrial-strength wood glue containing diphenylmethane diisocyanate as its active ingredient.

A diagnosis of gastric foreign body was made from survey abdominal radiographs.

A large aggregate of solidified wood glue was surgically removed, and the dog recovered uneventfully.

Fourteen other cases have been reported to the Animal Poison Control Center at the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (ASPCA). Eight of those 14 cases required surgical intervention. All cases recovered completely.

SMALL ANIMAL PRACTICE

Staining hair samples with a modified Wright-Giemsa stain to diagnose feline dermatophytosismembers
Direct examination of the hair is a simple diagnostic test for the diagnosis of dermatophytosis; training is needed to use this test. This study tried to evaluate whether use of modified Wright–Giemsa blue stain and/or photographic images of infected and uninfected hairs improved the user`s ability to identify infected or uninfected hairs. Ten cats with, and 10 cats without, dermatophytosis due to Microsporum canis (n = 20) were enrolled.
