No health problems in search and rescue dogs from September 11,2001
This is the result of an ongoing study of the University of Pennsylvania School of Veterinary Medicine: They evaluated the incidence of cancer and respiratory diseases of 97 search and rescue dogs that worked at sites September 11, 2001.

The test results of 97 search and rescue dogs were compared to a control group of dogs that did not. The tests showed higher levels of certain toxins and the immune systems were working harder in search dogs than the control groups earlier in the study.

As time progressed, the levels decreased.

The dogs will continue to be monitored, but researchers from the university are saying it is good news for human and dog rescue workers that there is no clear evidence of adverse effects.

Overall the lack of clear adverse medical or behavioral effects among the 9-11 dogs is heartening, says Dr. Cynthia Otto, associate professor of critical care in Pennsylvania´s School of Veterinary Medicine.

SMALL ANIMAL PRACTICE

Correlation of direct in-house cerebrospinal fluid cytology with commercial pathology results
In-house diagnostics are commonly used in veterinary practices, often allowing a quick diagnosis and thus the start of an adequate therapy. The aim of this online published new study was to investigate the correspondence between in-house direct cytological assessment of cerebrospinal fluid and results from a commercial veterinary pathology laboratory.
