Chronic or recurrent UTI in dogs - review of 383 cases
Chronic or recurrent urinary tract infections (UTI) are a common problem in dogs, caused by a variety of reasons. This large study gives interesting new input, e.g. the most commonly isolated bacteria and the most prevalent breeds. Very informative!

Laboratory records of bacterial urine cultures from 383 dogs with recurrent or persistent urinary tract infections (UTI) diagnosed at the University of California Veterinary Medical Teaching Hospital (VMTH) between 1969 and 1995 were reviewed retrospectively to characterize the bacteria involved and their association with age, gender, and breed of dogs affected.

Sixty-eight breeds and a mixed-breed group were represented.

Escherichia coli was the most common isolate, although mixed-bacterial infections were seen in 58% of the female and 55% of the male dogs.

Recurrent and persistent UTI were most prevalent in middle-aged to older German shepherd dogs, miniature/toy poodles, and Labrador retrievers, with no apparent sex predilection.

Criteria fitting recurrent and persistent UTI were present in 0.3% of all dogs seen at the VMTH during this 26-year period.

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.
