Reference intervals for blood parameters in Shetland Sheepdogsmembers
Several breeds have physiological peculiarities that induce variations in reference intervals (RIs) compared with the general canine population. Shetland sheepdogs (SSs) are reported to be more predisposed to different diseases (eg, hyperlipidemia, gallbladder mucocele, and hypothyroidism). Consequently, a breedā€specific approach is more often required. Thus, the aim of this study was to determine whether the RIs of the general canine population could be applied to that of SSs, and to generate breedā€specific RIs, where appropriate.

Pasteurella multocida diversity in poultry and pigs in Australiamembers
This recently published study investigates the genotype and diversity of Pasteurella multocida present in pig herds and determines the extent of overlap with isolates from poultry flocks in Australia. Do the isolates vary? A very interesting study not only for Australia.

TheilerĀ“s disease in a Trakehner caused by contaminated tetanus vaccinemembers
An 11ā€yearā€old Trakehner gelding was presented for evaluation of lethargy, decreased appetite, mild icterus, and elevated hepatic enzyme activities. Physical examination, serum chemistry results, and liver biopsy histopathologic findings were supportive of Theiler`s disease. Polymerase chain reaction (PCR) testing results of serum and liver tissue were positive for nonprimate (equine) hepacivirus (NPHV) and a novel equine parvovirusā€hepatitis virus (EqPVā€H). A serious and finally fatal problem, caused by contaminated vaccine.

Punica granatum associated with hepatotoxicosis in cattlemembers
The ingestion of pomegranates was associated with the deaths of 9 of 35 young cattle; 8 were found dead without any prior clinical signs being noted and 1 animal was observed to be weak with paleā€pink mucous membranes. This case report describes also gross pathological and histopathological signs of the affected cattle and discusses the question which toxic principle was underlying in this case.

Toceranib phosphate (PalladiaĀ®) in canine gastrointestinal stromal tumorsmembers
Gastrointestinal stromal tumors (GISTs) are uncommon intestinal neoplasms in the dog. Literature regarding adjunctive therapy for GISTs in dogs is sparse. Highā€risk GISTs in humans respond to tyrosine kinase inhibition in the adjuvant setting. This recently online published study reviews cases of toceranib phosphate use in dogs with GISTs and provides initial assessment of possible biological activity. A secondary aim was to evaluate patient and tumor characteristics for possible prognostic value.


Radioactive iodine uptake in hyperthyroid cats after rh-TSHmembers
Radioactive iodine therapy is considered the treatment of choice for hyperthyroidism in cats, but the availability of this modality is limited by costs and hospitalization requirements. Administration of recombinant human thyroid stimulating hormone (rhā€TSH) to humans with thyroid neoplasia or nodular goiter can increase thyroidal iodine uptake, thereby allowing the use of lower radioactive iodine doses for treatment. Veterinary studies of this subject are limited, and results are conflicting. Thus, the objective of this study was to investigate the effects of rhā€TSH administration on thyroidal iodine uptake in hyperthyroid cats.

Hypoechoic tissue changes in dogs with malignant prostatic lymphomamembers
Neoplasia of the prostate is relatively uncommon in dogs with adenocarcinoma being the most common type. Nonā€epithelial tumors are rare and only individual cases of malignant lymphoma affecting the prostate have been reported. The purpose of this multiā€institutional, retrospective, descriptive study was to characterize the ultrasonographic features of canine prostatic lymphoma. Inclusion criteria were an abdominal ultrasound and cytological/histological diagnosis of malignant prostatic lymphoma.

Emphysematous gastritis in dogs and catsmembers
Gastric pneumatosis is an imaging finding defined as the presence of gas foci in the gastric wall. In humans, this imaging feature can result from one of two separate clinical entities: lifeā€threatening emphysematous gastritis or clinically benign gastric emphysema. This retrospective case series study describes the clinical and imaging features in five animals diagnosed with spontaneous gastric pneumatosis without gastric dilatationā€volvulus.

Primary pulmonary histiocytic sarcoma in dogsmembers
Primary pulmonary histiocytic sarcoma (PHS) has been reported, but is not well characterized. The aim of this retrospective study was to describe clinical characteristics, characterize prognostic factors and report the outcome of a larger group of dogs with primary PHS. It took 11 institutions and 15 years to collect the 37 patients with this rare tumor disease - a very interesting article!
