Diffuse leptomeningeal histiocytic sarcoma in the cerebrospinal fluid members
Two adult male castrated dogs were evaluated for progressive paraparesis and ataxia. Neurologic examination showed severe ataxia, delayed proprioceptive placement in the pelvic limbs, pain upon palpation of the lumbar spine as well as facial paresis in one dog, and decreased withdrawal reflex of the pelvic limbs in the other dog. Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) in both dogs showed diffuse meningeal and intramedullary lesions. However, no evidence of a mass was found. Biopsies could not be performed safely due to the location of the lesions.
These cases emphasize the potential critical importance of CSF analysis in providing an antemortem diagnosis of neoplasia in neurologic patients.

Fluconazole and the pharmacokinetics of cyclosporin A in healthy dogs members
The concommittant application of ketoconazole and cyclosporin A leads to a decreased metabolism of cyclosporin A and was sometimes used to save costs when cyclosporin A had to be given to large dogs. Is the same true for fluconazole? The aim of this study was to describe the effect of fluconazole on the pharmacokinetics of cyclosporin A in healthy dogs when investigated as a single dose and at steady-state.

Feline Temporal Lobe Epilepsymembers
Accumulating evidence suggests that epileptic seizures originating from the temporal lobe (TL) occur in cats. Typically, affected animals have clinically focal seizures with orofacial automatisms including salivation, facial twitching, lip smacking, chewing, licking, and swallowing. Motor arrest and autonomic and behavioral signs also may occur. An excellent review of a fascinating and probably underdiagnosed disease!

Management of respiratory failure from tick paralysis - a reviewmembers
Dogs and cats with tick paralysis may develop respiratory failure despite management with tick antiserum. Prompt recognition and effective support strategies should improve the survival of these patients. The primary objective of this review is to improve the recognition and management of respiratory failure in dogs and cats treated for tick paralysis in veterinary practice.

Use of vascular closure device in a dog with impaired hemostasismembers
A 6-year-old female spayed Kai Ken Tora dog presented after vehicular trauma. A routine case? Not at all, the patient was suffering from a severe coagulation disorder. Thus the use of a vascular closure device (VCD) to provide rapid arterial hemostasis following percutaneous femoral arterial catheterization and diagnostic angiography in a thrombocytopenic and coagulopathic dog was initiated - the first description of a VCD for arterial closure following percutaneous access in a dog with impaired hemostasis.


Surgical repair of a chronic, oronasal fistula in a horse members
An 8-year-old Andalusian stallion was presented to the Equine Hospital with a 1.5 year history of an oronasal fistula measuring approximately 2 cm long (caudal to rostral) by 1.5 cm wide following an oral extraction of the right second maxillary premolar (106). The technique of repair using an alveolar bone flap is described in this very informative case report.

Hepatic AA amyloidosis in a cat - cytological findingsmembers
A 3-year-old, spayed female, Domestic Shorthair cat presented with anorexia, lethargy, vomiting, probable hemoabdomen, and multiple masses on the right lateral liver lobe. Clinicopathologic and imaging abnormalities included anemia, azotemia, icterus, and hepatomegaly with hypoechoic masses. Can a fine-needle aspiration be useful for diagnosis?

Urinary Biomarkers for Acute Kidney Injury members
Routinely, kidney dysfunction and decreased glomerular filtration rate (GFR) are diagnosed by the evaluation of changes in the serum creatinine (SCr) and blood urea nitrogen (BUN) concentrations. However, neither of these tests is sensitive or specific enough for the early diagnosis of impaired kidney function because they are both affected by other renal and nonrenal factors although they are offered by many laboratories. This update is very useful for daily practice!

Aspirin resistance in healthy adult warmblood horsesmembers
The reasons for this prospective experimental study were to determine a dosing scheme with loading and maintenance dose of aspirin inducing inhibition of platelet function measured by whole blood impedance aggregometry. Is aspirin an option for prevention and therapy of diseases with increased platelet activation as endotoxaemia or laminitis?
