Archives Highlights:
Dog bite wounds in cats: a retrospective study of 72 cases.
The study included 72 cats diagnosed with canine bite wounds (with the dog attacks having been witnessed). Seventy-one percent of cats suffered multiple injuries, and there was a significant association between the number of injured body areas and survival, and between severity of injury and survival. Fifty percent of cats were treated conservatively, 32% by local surgical debridement, and 18% of cats required an exploratory procedure. Fifty-seven cats (79%) survived to discharge.

Laparoscopic Castration Using Bipolar Forceps vs. Orchiectomy in Dogs: A Comparison of Two Techniques.
