  1. 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...
  2. 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...
  3. 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...
  4. Herniation of the urinary bladder through a congenitally enlarged inguinal canal in a cat.

    Schweizer Archiv für Tierheilkunde 149(12):559 (2007) PMID 18225412

    A two-year-old, castrated male Main Coon cat was referred because of chronic, recurrent pollakiuria, haematuria, and acute vomiting. On clinical examination, a smooth, soft-tissue mass, suspected to be the urinary bladder, was palpable outside of the abdominal wall in the inguinal area. On radiograp...
  5. 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...
  6. [The frequency of coccidial infection in dog families of different husbandry and breeds in south Germany].

    Tierarztliche Praxis 18(4):407 (1990) PMID 2219110

    Oocysts and/or sporocysts were detected in 50 litters and 37 bitches of 100 coproscopically examined dog families in Southern Germany. Oocysts of Isospora spp. were excreted by 41 of the 50 positive litters, 36 and 16 litters shedding oocysts of Isospora ohioensis/burrowsi and I. canis, respectively...
  7. FSH and LH plasma levels in bitches with differences in risk for urinary incontinence.

    Theriogenology 63(8):2164 (2005) PMID 15826681

    To determine whether the height of the plasma gonadotropin levels after spaying is associated with urinary incontinence, the concentrations of plasma follicle stimulating hormone (FSH) and luteinizing hormone (LH) were determined once in 191 intact and 308 spayed bitches. The bitches were grouped ac...
  8. [Spectrum of species and infection frequency of endoparasites in bitches and their puppies in south Germany].

    Tierarztliche Praxis 18(1):61 (1990) PMID 2326798

    Toxocara canis, Toxascaris leonina, hookworms, Trichuris vulpis, Strongyloides, Hammondia heydorni, Sarcocystis spp., Isospora canis and Isospora ohioensis and/or Isospora burrowsi of at least 9 species were detected in 100 randomly selected dog families in Southern Germany. Examinations carried out...
  9. [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...
  10. 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...
