Archives Highlights:
A longitudinal study of the persistence of increased creatinine and concordance between kidney biomarkers in cats and dogs.
The study included 4517 cats and 4576 dogs with increased T1 creatinine concentrations and 54,295 cats and 125,403 dogs with T1 creatinine at or below the URL. The probability of a persistently increased creatinine at T2 was approximately 58% for cats and 49% for dogs after a T1 increase. For animals without a T1 increase the probability of increased creatinine at T2 was only 7% for cats and 3% for dogs. For cats and dogs with persistently increased Cr, the probability of an increased SDMA concentration at T1 was 70-75%. By 24 months, that probability rose to 94% for cats and 88% for dogs.
Laparoscopic Castration Using Bipolar Forceps vs. Orchiectomy in Dogs: A Comparison of Two Techniques.
The use of high-frequency bipolar forceps allowed quick and uneventful laparoscopic procedures. The laparoscopic group had significantly lower pain scores, cortisol, and PCR values than the orchiectomy group. No complications were seen in any group.
Effect of age, sex, and body size on the blood biochemistry and physiological constants of dogs from 4 wk. to >‚ÄČ52 wk. of age.
The results of this study showed that ALT, total protein, albumin, globulin, urea, creatinine, and body temperature levels were lower in puppies than in adult dogs, while the enzymatic activity of ALP, LDH, glucose concentration, and heart rate were higher. Whereas sex, body size, and the interaction did not show a significant effect.
Non-blinded treatment of aural -hematoma with oral prednisolone as a monotherapy in privately-owned dogs.
Clinicians treated 24 privately-owned dogs suffering from aural hematoma with oral prednisolone at 1?mg/kg/day for 14 days, followed by 0.5?mg/kg/day for another 14 days. The success was assessed subjectively after 14 days by the owner and after 28 days by a clinician or specialist. In 21 of 24 dogs, oral prednisolone treatment for 28 days led to a subjective clinical improvement of at least 80%.
Managing Compulsive Disorders in Cats
Treatment of compulsive disorder is aimed at reducing the frequency, intensity, and duration of compulsive episodes so that alternative behaviors can be trained and reinforced instead. Clients should be aware that treatment of these disorders will often require lifelong care to ensure that the cat maintains a good quality of life.
