Percutaneous drainage of liver abscesses in small animals
Hepatic abscesses are rare and difficult to diagnose in dogs and cats. Ultrasonographic examination is essential to thoroughly examine hepatic abnormalities, and it may also help in the localization of hepatic abscesses. Also the treatment of these abscesses, once diagnosed, can be very difficult. Percutaneous drainage as descriced in this brandnew article seems a very good option.

In this retrospective study, five dogs and one cat with focal hepatic lesions compatible with a hepatic abscess were treated with percutaneous ultrasound-assisted drainage and alcoholization using 95% ethanol. The procedure was performed rapidly under injectable anesthesia and provided excellent results in all animals. No complications or relapses were noted for 120 days following the procedure. The technique of percutaneous ultrasound-assisted drainage and alcoholization of hepatic abscesses in the dog and cat is also described.

Toceranib phosphate (Palladia®) in canine gastrointestinal stromal tumorsmembers
Gastrointestinal stromal tumors (GISTs) are uncommon intestinal neoplasms in the dog. Literature regarding adjunctive therapy for GISTs in dogs is sparse. High‐risk GISTs in humans respond to tyrosine kinase inhibition in the adjuvant setting. This recently online published study reviews cases of toceranib phosphate use in dogs with GISTs and provides initial assessment of possible biological activity. A secondary aim was to evaluate patient and tumor characteristics for possible prognostic value.
