Body Weight, Body Condition, and Muscle Condition in Cats with Hyperthyroidismmembers
Hyperthyroidism is the most common endocrinopathy in cats. Still the contribution of fat loss versus muscle wasting to the loss of body weight seen in hyperthyroid cats is unknown, and so the objective of this study was to investigate body weight, body condition score (BCS), and muscle condition score (MCS) in almost 500 hyperthyroid cats.

Effects of intravenous terbutaline on various vital parameters in anesthetized horses members
Terbutaline is used for various indications in horses. Which effects does intravenous (IV) administration of terbutaline have on PaO2, PaCO2, pH, heart rate (HR) and arterial pressures in healthy, laterally recumbent horses breathing ambient air under total intravenous anesthesia (TIVA)?

EHV-3-infection and associated ocular lesions in a fillymembers
A 3-month-old Quarter Horse filly presented with corneal ulceration in the right eye with extensive coalescing periocular ulcerations, erosions, and cutaneous crusts. Similar periocular lesions were present around the left eye, on the gingival mucosa, and on the cutaneous and mucosal surfaces of the lips. The first description of an EHV-3-infection in a filly as well as in the dam - and an important differential diagnosis for vesicular lesions.

Prevalence of impinged spinous processes in asymptomatic dogsmembers
One hundred and ninety lateral thoracic radiographs of asymptomatic dogs radiographed for reasons other than spinal pain, were retrospectively reviewed by two board-certified radiologists. Images were assessed for impinged spinous processes and graded for narrowing, sclerosis or remodelling of the spinous processes.
How is the prevalence of impinged spinous processes in this group of dogs?

Intraocular pressure curve protocol for use in dogsmembers
Elevated intraocular pressure has to be monitored in regular intervals, but unfortunately recommendations for intraocular pressure curve protocols are missing. The objective of this new study was to establish an intraocular pressure curve protocol that is safe for corneal health and detects harmful elevations of intraocular pressure outside normal clinic hours as well as to determine inter-user variability and if repeated measurements affect intraocular pressures.


Atopic dermatitis and the intestinal microbiota in dogs and menmembers
The prevalence of human and canine allergic diseases is commonly perceived to be increasing. Suggested predisposing factors in people and dogs include increased allergen load, increased exposure to pollutants, reduced family size, reduced microbial load and less exposure to infection at a young age, increasingly urbanised environment, and changes in dietary habits. Genetic make-up may provide a template for phenotypic predisposition which is strongly influenced by our diet and environment leading to constant regulation of gene expression. One way in which diet can alter gene expression is via its effects on the gut flora or microbiota, the collection of microbes residing in the gastrointestinal tract. A very interesting new aspect in the pathogenesis of atopic Dermatitis in both humans and dogs!

Clean Hands Save Horses - adapted to the WHO´s Clean Hands Save Lives initiativemembers
Even before the discovery of germs, the practice of hand hygiene had revealed itself as a crucial element in the fight against infectious diseases. In fact, supported by the historical discoveries and more recent evidence based data, the World Health Organization considers hand hygiene as the pillar of infection control, particularly when related to nosocomial infections. Therefore, the World Health Organization has a strong focus on “Clean Hands Save Lives” campaigns, a principle that is easily translatable into “Clean Hands Save Horses”.

Bacterial contamination and DNA quantification in stored blood units members
Blood transfusions in veterinary medicine have become increasingly more common and are now an integral part of lifesaving and advanced treatment in small and large animals. Important risks associated with transfusion of blood products include the transmission of various infectious diseases. Several guidelines suggest what infectious agents to screen for in canine and feline transfusion medicine. However, while the risk of bacterial contamination of blood products during storage and administration has not been documented in veterinary medicine, it has emerged as a cause of morbidity and mortality in human transfusion medicine. The results described in this case report of two blood banks are alarming!

Measurement of serum cobalamin and folate concentrations in pigs with commercially assaysmembers
Cobalamin (vitamin B12) and folate (vitamin B9) are important for the amino acid metabolism and nucleic acid synthesis. Immunoassays for the measurement of both vitamins in serum are routinely used in people, cats, and dogs, serving as indicators for clinical disorders including cobalamin and/or folate deficiency, small intestinal dysbiosis, or inadequate dietary supply of these vitamins. The analysis of these analytes may also be clinically useful in pigs.
So the purpose of this study was to analytically validate immunoassays for the measurement of cobalamin and folate concentrations in porcine serum, and to determine serum cobalamin and folate concentrations in healthy newborn pigs pre- and postweaning.
