  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. 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)....
  3. 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...
  4. 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...
  5. 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...
  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. [Toxocara canis: frequency of detection and extent of infection in bitches of various breeds and husbandry and their litters in South German...

    Tierarztliche Praxis 18(3):293 (1990) PMID 2377994

    Epidemiological investigations of 100 randomly selected dog families in Southern Germany revealed eggs of Toxocara canis in 67% of the litters and in 45% of the bitches. Eggs were isolated from litters at the earliest on the 16th day and at the latest on the 55th day post partum, in bitches on the 1...
  8. 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...
  9. [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...
  10. [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...
