Parvovirus enteritis and other risk factors associated with persistent gastrointestinal signs in dogs later in life: a retrospective cohort study.
The prevalence of persistent GI signs was significantly higher in post-parvo dogs compared to control dogs (57% vs 25%). Markers of disease severity at the time of hospital admission such as neutropenia, low body temperature (BT), and treatment with an antiemetic medication (metoclopramide) were significant risk factors for persistent GI signs in post-parvo dogs.

Comprehensive analysis of retracted journal articles in the field of veterinary medicine and animal health.
Two-hundred-forty-two articles retracted between 1993 and 2019 were included in the study. Over this period, the estimated rate of retraction increased from 0.03/1000 to 1.07/1000 veterinary articles. Median time from publication to retraction was 478 days (range 0-3653 days). Veterinary journals had disproportionately more retractions than nonveterinary journals. Authors/groups with =2 retractions accounted for 37.2% of retractions. Authors were affiliated with a faculty of veterinary medicine in 59.1% of retracted articles.
