Selected emergency conditions of male and female reproductive tracts in horses are described, including injuries affecting the external genitalia of male horses and emergent conditions arising during gestation in mares. Conditions affecting male horses are discussed in the context of breeding stallions, but kicks or other mechanisms of trauma in the groin can also affect geldings. Priapism, paraphimosis, trauma to the scrotum and testicles, and penile injury are discussed. In mares, traumatic vestibular injury, placentitis, hydropsic conditions, prepubic tendon and abdominal wall compromise, and uterine torsion are included. Clinical recognition of the problem, diagnostic procedures, and treatments are summarized.

Effect of Clostridium butyricum on Gastrointestinal Infections.|
Owing to its preventive and ameliorative effects on gastrointestinal infections, C. butyricum MIYAIRI 588 (CBM 588) has been used as a probiotic in clinical and veterinary medicine for decades. C. butyricum is widely effective against Clostoridioides difficile, the causative pathogen of nosocomial infections; Helicobacter pylori, the causative pathogen of gastric cancer; and antibiotic-resistant Escherichia coli. C. butyricum is expected to be one of the antimicrobial-resistance (AMR) countermeasures for the One-health approach.
Top 5 Goals for Management of Diabetes Mellitus|
Optimal glycemic control can be a moving target in dogs and cats, depending on how control is defined. Studies that examine insulin efficacy and safety use several methods to assess glycemic control, including assessing clinical signs, maintaining glycated proteins in a target range, and determining the insulin time–action profile (ie, glucose curve). Each assessment method has advantages and disadvantages, and no single method is clearly superior.
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.
Ischemic Dermatopathy in Dogs|
Some dermatologists have subtyped ischemic dermatopathy into 5 groups: familial dermatomyositis, juvenile-onset dermatomyositis-like disease in atypical breeds, post-rabies-vaccine–associated panniculitis, generalized vaccine-associated ischemic dermatopathy, and generalized idiopathic ischemic dermatopathy.
