Prevalence of bacteremia in dairy cattle with APMmembers
Acute puerperal metritis (APM) affects 30% of postpartum dairy cattle. Bacteremia negatively impacts survival in cattle with coliform mastitis. However, the prevalence of bacteremia in dairy cattle with APM is unknown. Is it true that bacteremia is detectable in a large proportion of cattle with APM? A prospective case-control study including 17 dairy cows with APM and 17 healthy dairy cattle tried to find an answer.

Chiari-Like Malformation and Syringomyelia in a non-Spaniel breedmembers
Although Chiari-like malformation (CM) and syringomyelia (SM) have been described in many small breed dogs, the prevalence and clinical manifestations of this complex have not been documented in a large cohort of American Brussels Griffon (ABG) dogs. This study aimed to characterize the clinical and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) features of CM and SM in the ABG breed.

Maropitant versus acepromazine in hydromorphone premedicated dogsmembers
Vomiting is a common complication associated with the use of hydromorphine for pre-emptive analgesia in dogs. The ideal anti-emetic protocol for prevention of this complication has not been established. Can maropitant administered concurrently or before hydromorphone reduce the incidence of vomiting, signs of nausea, ptyalism, and increased panting compared to administration of acepromazine or a 0.9% saline control?

Angiogenesis and its markers in dogs with congenital portosystemic shunts members
Dogs with congenital portosystemic shunts (CPSS) have hypoplasia of the intrahepatic portal veins. Surgical CPSS attenuation results in the development of the intrahepatic portal vasculature, the precise mechanism for which is unknown, although new vessel formation by angiogenesis is suspected. Is the degree of portal vascular development and the increase in portal vascularization after CPSS attenuation significantly associated with hepatic vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) and VEGF receptor 2 (VEGFR2) gene expression and serum VEGF concentration?

Effects of slow intravenous injection of tramadol, romifidine or both in poniesmembers
Especially the anti-nociceptive and sedative effects of slow intravenous (IV) injection of tramadol, romifidine, or a combination of both drugs in ponies was evaluated in this only online published within-subject blinded study including 20 ponies (seven male, 13 female, weighing mean ± SD 268.0 ± 128 kg). Very informative, especially the role of tramadol to reduce the occurrence of adverse behavioural side effects.


Cardiopulmonary effects of dexmedetomidine infusions in dogs undergoing isoflurane anesthesiamembers
This prospective, randomized, crossover Experiment on six adult intact female mixed-breed dogs weighing (mean ± SD [range]) 23.3 ± 3.8 (17.8–29.4) kg was performed to determine the cardiopulmonary changes associated with intravenous (IV) infusions of dexmedetomidine at equipotent isoflurane-dexmedetomidine concentrations compared with isoflurane alone. A very important and relevant study for the small animal practice since both drugs are commonly used for anesthesia in dogs.

Fentanyl constant rate infusion in isoflurane-anaesthetized sheepmembers
This recently published prospective, randomised, ‘blinded’ controlled study on twenty healthy sheep (weight mean 41.1 ± SD 4.5 kg) was undertaken to determine the anaesthetic and cardiorespiratory effects of a constant rate infusion of fentanyl in sheep anaesthetized with isoflurane and undergoing orthopaedic surgery.

Oxidative stress in acute versus chronic glaucomamembers
Does oxidative stress occur early in the pathogenesis of glaucoma in dogs? An interesting hypothesis. Sections from eight control retinas and 25 retinas from dogs with primary glaucoma were examined to test this.

Complications After Perineal Urethrotomy in Equidsmembers
Urolithiasis is the main indication for perineal urethrotomy in horses. This recently published article reports the clinical findings, incidence of complications, and outcome associated with perineal urethrotomy in 27 equids. Very informative!
