Acute granulocytic ehrlichiosis in a dog (case report)
Acute granulocytic ehrlichiosis is not too rare in dogs. But did you know that it can resemble an acute pancreatitis? A very interesting case report that has been published recently!

Acute granulocytic ehrlichiosis was identified in a 6-year-old rottweiler that was presented for possible pancreatitis.

Intracytoplasmic inclusion bodies were identified within neutrophils on a peripheral blood smear. Serology was ineffective in identifying the disease in the acute state.

The diagnosis and identification of the organism were confirmed by polymerase chain reaction (PCR) and deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA) sequencing.

Based on elevations in amylase and lipase and the presence of right cranial-quadrant abdominal pain, concurrent pancreatitis was diagnosed.

It is unknown if there was any association between the acute granulocytic ehrlichiosis and the pancreatitis.

The dog recovered well following doxycycline therapy.

Prognostic factors in cats with HCMmembers
Left atrial (LA) enlargement, congestive heart failure (CHF), and aortic thromboembolism (ATE) are associated with decreased survival in cats with hypertrophic cardiomyopathy (HCM), but the prognostic value of echocardiographic variables has not been well characterized. Do LA echocardiographic variables and assessment of left ventricular (LV) diastolic and systolic function have prognostic value in cats with HCM?
