Abstract

High-pressure injection injury to the hand is a rare but very serious clinical entity, considered by plastic and hand surgeons as a surgical emergency. Diagnosis of these injuries is frequently delayed due to the initial benign appearance of the wound and the lack of knowledge of the seriousness of this injury.

Archives Highlights:
National Dog Survey: Describing UK Dog and Ownership Demographics.
The online survey was completed by a total of 354,046 respondents owning dogs in the UK, providing data for 440,423 dogs. The results of this study highlight dog demographics, including acquisition and veterinary factors, as well as owner demographic and household information. This dataset serves as an up-to-date baseline for future study comparisons to continue to monitor trends and patterns of the dog population and dog owners going forwards.
Attitudes and Beliefs of a Sample of Australian Dog and Cat Owners towards Pet Confinement.
Dog owners showed the strongest support for confining dogs to the owners' property whenever unsupervised (98% agreement) and less support for confining dogs inside the house at night (54% agreement), and only 23% believed dogs had a negative impact on wildlife. Cat owners showed the strongest support for confining cats inside the house at night (89% agreement). Cat owners' non-supportive attitudes toward cat confinement were partly because of higher concern for cat quality of life and lower concern about their cats' predation behaviours, compared to non-cat owners.
Equine herpesvirus myeloencephalopathy
A fever spike usually precedes the clinical onset of EHM. Clinical signs may include lethargy; mild to severe ataxia; weakness of the hind limbs to tetraplegia; edema of the distal limbs; urinary incontinence or urinary retention; prostration; and death.
Delayed embryonic development or a long sperm survival in two mares-A registration conundrum.
Donor mares were inseminated with semen from one stallion during one oestrous cycle and semen from a different stallion on the subsequent oestrous cycle. Embryo(s) were collected 8?days after ovulation during the second oestrous cycle and transferred into synchronised recipient mares. Genetic testing was performed to determine parentage of the two foals. For both foals, DNA parentage testing excluded the second stallion as the genetic sire and confirmed that the first stallion, whose semen was inseminated on the previous oestrous cycle, was the actual genetic sire.
Immunosuppressant Therapy in Small Animal Medicine: What, When, and Why
Immunosuppressant drugs are categorized into steroid medications (e.g., prednisone, prednisolone, dexamethasone, budesonide), calcineurin inhibitors (e.g., cyclosporine), antiproliferative medications (e.g., azathioprine, mycophenolate, leflunomide), and mechanistic target of rapamycin inhibitors (not currently used routinely in veterinary medicine). This article focuses on the first 3 categories.
