Common vasopressor drugs in septic shock-induced hypotension members
Are the commonly used vasopressor drugs like norepinephrine, dopamine, epinephrine and vasopressin really indicated to treat septic shock-induced hypotension in volume replete animals? An important question in intensive care medicine! The aim of this study was to review and appraise common vasopressor drugs used for this indication as well in human aas in veterinary medicine.

Exposure of pigs to lead from contaminated zinc oxide members
High levels of lead, up to 3.3 mg/kg fresh weight, were detected in pig liver in Western Australia at the beginning of 2008. This followed the detection of lead at above the maximum level (ML) in a pig liver through the National Residue Survey (NRS). The contamination source was traced back to a zinc oxide feed additive used early post-weaning that contained in excess of 8% lead. The aim of this study was the confirmation of the source of lead contamination was obtained by comparing lead isotope ratios for the zinc oxide and the pig livers.

Hypothyroidism and dilated cardiomyopathy in Doberman Pinschersmembers
Hypothyroidism and dilated cardiomyopathy (DCM) are both common diseases in Doberman Pinschers. A possible influence of hypothyroidism on the etiology and progression of DCM is controversial. This recently published study tries to evaluate the role of hypothyroidism in etiology and progression of DCM in a total of 175 Doberman Pinschers.

Seven methods for continuous therapeutic cooling of the equine digitmembers
Digital hypothermia may be effective for laminitis prophylaxis and therapy, but the efficacy of cooling methods used in clinical practice requires evaluation. The objective of this recently published study was to use hoof wall surface temperature (HWST) to compare several cooling methods used in clinical practice.
The study was designed as an experimental crossover design with a minimum washout period of 72 h.

Innovative emulsion of medium chain triglycerides against canine and feline periodontopathogensmembers
Medium chain triglycerides are used for various indications in human medicine. Are they also effective against canine and feline periodontopathogens which are often very hard to treat? This recently online published study tests the in vitro antimicrobial efficacy of a non-toxic emulsion of free fatty acids against clinically relevant canine and feline periodontopathogens - maybe a therapeutic alternative to antibiotics in the future?


Standing removal of an elbow fracture in an adult horsemembers
A 12-year-old 450 kg Argentine polo mare presented with a dropped elbow and an unwillingness to bear weight after being kicked by another horse on the lateral aspect of the upper left forelimb. The mare was subsequently diagnosed with a displaced olecranon fracture that did not readily conform to the standard classification systems. Referral for surgical treatment involving open reduction and internal fixation was declined due to financial constraints.

Retrobulbar and peribulbar regional techniques in catsmembers
Retrobulbar and peribulbar injections are commonly used in small mammals but only occasionally in cats or dogs. This prospective randomized masked study, performed on ten cat cadavers (20 eyes), compares injectate distribution and potential complications of retrobulbar and peribulbar injections at least in dead animals.

Pulmonary hypertension in dogs naturally infected with Angiostrongylus vasorummembers
The outcome in dogs with pulmonary hypertension associated with natural Angiostrongylus vasorum infection is unclear. This study aimed to report long-term outcome of dogs with A. vasorum and pulmonary hypertension, and to evaluate factors associated with pulmonary hypertension development. It was hypothesised that dogs with pulmonary hypertension had a shorter survival time than dogs without pulmonary hypertension.

TNT testing in the donkeymembers
Donkeys are not small horses, and also the TNT (thermal nociceptive threshold) has to be evaluated separately for them. This study on 16 male donkeys was performed to evaluate a thermal nociceptive threshold (TNT) testing device in the donkey, and the influence of potential confounding factors on TNTs. Is this test reliable for donkeys?
