  1. Ectopic ureters in dogs: clinical features, surgical techniques and outcome.

    Veterinary Surgery 41(4):515 (2012) PMID 22486391

    To compare clinical features of ectopic ureter (EU) in male and female dogs and outcome after neoureterostomy with resection restricted to the intravesical part of the ureter for intramural ectopic ureter (iEU) or of ureteroneocystostomy for extramural ectopic ureter (eEU). Retrospective case series...
  2. Apgar score after induction of anesthesia for canine cesarean section with alfaxalone versus propofol.

    Theriogenology 80(8):850 (2013) PMID 23932170

    The effects of alfaxalone and propofol on neonatal vitality were studied in 22 bitches and 81 puppies after their use as anesthetic induction agents for emergency cesarean section. After assessment that surgery was indicated, bitches were randomly allocated to receive alfaxalone 1 to 2 mg/kg body we...
  3. Gonadectomy in cats and dogs: a review of risks and benefits.

    Reproduction in Domestic Animals 44 Suppl 2:29 (2009) PMID 19754532

    The necessity, and in particular the timing, of gonadectomy in dogs and cats is still controversial. This is mainly because gonadectomy confers a mixture of benefits and adverse effects that depend upon the age at neutering, sex, species and breed. In this paper, the long-term risks and benefits of...
  4. Rhinitis/Bronchopneumonia syndrome in Irish Wolfhounds.

    Journal of Veterinary Internal Medicine 17(6):843 (2003) PMID 14658722

    This study describes the clinical, immunologic, genetic, and pathologic features of Irish Wolfhounds with rhinitis/bronchopneumonia syndrome. The dogs examined were from Belgium, The Netherlands, UK, Canada, Germany, and Switzerland. Signs included transient to persistent mucoid or mucopurulent rhin...
  5. Prolactin--to be reconsidered in canine mammary tumourigenesis?

    Veterinary And Comparative Oncology 12(2):93 (2014) PMID 22738741

    Mammary tumours represent the most common neoplastic disease of the female dog, and the incidence in female dogs is much higher than in women. Whereas the influence of sexual steroids on breast cancer (BC) development in dogs has been studied, very little is known about the role of prolactin (PRL)....
  6. Luteal and placental function in the bitch: spatio-temporal changes in prolactin receptor (PRLr) expression at dioestrus, pregnancy and norm...

    Reproductive Biology and Endocrinology 9 (1):109 (2011) PMID 21812980 PMCID PMC3171325

    Endocrine mechanisms governing canine reproductive function remain still obscure. Progesterone (P4) of luteal origin is required for maintenance of pregnancy. Corpora lutea (CL) are gonadotrop-independent during the first third of dioestrus; afterwards prolactin (PRL) is the primary luteotropic fact...
  7. [Pros and cons of gonadectomy in female and male cats].

    Schweizer Archiv fuer Tierheilkunde 152(6):273 (2010) PMID 20533200

    Gonadectomy irreversibly prevents reproduction by removing germ cells as well as gonadal hormones. Moreover, consequences of gonadectomy include metabolic alterations influencing the incidence of diseases, phenotype and behavior. The desirable and undesirable effects of castration on different organ...
  8. Comparative quantitative assessment of GnRH- and LH-receptor mRNA expression in the urinary tract of sexually intact and spayed female dogs.

    Theriogenology 67(6):1134 (2007) PMID 17276503

    Ovariectomy interrupts the regulatory loop in the hypothalamus-pituitary-gonad axis, leading to a several-fold increase in gonadotropin levels. This rise in hormonal secretion may play a causal role in ovariectomy-related urinary incontinence. The purpose of this study was to examine the effect of o...
  9. Alfaxalone or ketamine-medetomidine in cats undergoing ovariohysterectomy: a comparison of intra-operative parameters and post-operative pai...

    Veterinary Anaesthesia & Analgesia 41(6):644 (2014) PMID 24674016

    To compare post-operative pain in cats after alfaxalone or ketamine- medetomidine anaesthesia for ovariohysterectomy (OHE) and physiologic parameters during and after surgery. Prospective 'blinded' randomized clinical study. Twenty-one healthy cats. Cats were assigned randomly into two groups: Group...
  10. Changes in plasma gonadotropin concentrations and urethral closure pressure in the bitch during the 12 months following ovariectomy.

    Theriogenology 62(8):1391 (2004) PMID 15451248

    Urinary incontinence due to acquired urethral sphincter incompetence is a common side effect of spaying, for which the underlying cause remains unknown. Spaying not only results in a significant reduction in the urethral closure pressure within 1 year but also in an increase in the plasma gonadotrop...
