Collection and characterization of semen from green iguanas (Iguana iguana).
Objective-To determine an efficient method for the collection of semen samples by means of electroejaculation, characterize spermatozoa quality and quantity, and determine the effect of refrigerated storage on motility of spermatozoa obtained from green iguanas (Iguana iguana). Animals-18 adult gree...
Assessment of left ventricular volumes by use of one-, two-, and three-dimensional echocardiography versus magnetic resonance imaging in hea...
To quantify left ventricle (LV) volumes by use of 1-D, 2-D, and 3-D echocardiography versus MRI in dogs. 10 healthy Beagles. During anesthesia, each dog underwent an echocardiographic examination via the Teichholz method, performed on the basis of standard M-mode frames (1-D); the monoplane Simpson...
Effect of hydroxyethyl starch 130/0.4 and 200/0.5 solutions on canine platelet function in vitro.
Objective-To determine whether dilution of blood samples from healthy dogs with 2 hydroxyethyl starch (HES) solutions, HES 130/0.4 and HES 200/0.5, would result in platelet dysfunction as measured by closure time (Ct) beyond a dilutional effect. Sample-Citrated blood samples from 10 healthy dogs wit...
Distribution of 2-deoxy-2-fluoro-d-glucose in the coelom of healthy bald eagles (Haliaeetus leucocephalus).
Objective-To determine 2-deoxy-2-fluoro (fluorine 18)-d-glucose ((18)FDG) biodistribution in the coelom of bald eagles (Haliaeetus leucocephalus). Animals-8 healthy adult bald eagles. Procedures-For each eagle, whole-body transmission noncontrast CT, 60-minute dynamic positron emission tomograph...
Ultrasonographic measurement of the pancreas and pancreatic duct in clinically normal dogs.
Objective-To obtain ultrasonographic reference values for the thickness of the pancreas and the diameter of the pancreatic duct in clinically normal dogs. Animals-242 adult dogs with no clinical signs of gastrointestinal tract disease. Procedures-The maximum pancreatic thickness and the diameter...
Incidence of bacteremia following upper gastrointestinal endoscopy and biopsy in healthy dogs before, during, and after treatment with omepr...
Objective-To determine the incidence of bacteremia, as detected by routine methods for bacterial culture of blood samples, following routine endoscopic biopsy of the stomach and duodenum in healthy research dogs and to determine whether treatment with omeprazole administration affected the incidence...
Effect of calf age and administration route of initial multivalent modified-live virus vaccine on humoral and cell-mediated immune responses...
Objective-To compare immune responses following modified-live virus (MLV) vaccination at weaning after intranasal or SC administration of an MLV vaccine to beef calves at 2 or 70 days of age. Animals-184 calves. Procedures-Calves were allocated to 1 of 5 groups. The IN2 (n = 37) and IN70 (37) gr...
Evaluation of matrix metalloproteinase-2 and -9 in the cerebrospinal fluid of dogs with intracranial tumors.
Objective-To identify matrix metalloproteinase (MMP)-2 and -9 in CSF from dogs with intracranial tumors. Sample-CSF from 55 dogs with intracranial tumors and 37 control dogs. Procedures-Latent and active MMP-2 and -9 were identified by use of gelatin zymography. The presence of MMPs in the CSF o...
Analysis of the transport of and cytotoxic effects for nalbuphine solution in corneal cells.
To assess the in vitro effects of various nalbuphine concentrations on viability and wound healing ability of corneal cells and potential drug transport through the corneal epithelium. Cultured canine and human corneal epithelial cells (CECs) and cultured canine corneal stromal fibroblasts. CECs and...
Association of airborne concentration of virulent Rhodococcus equi with location (stall versus paddock) and month (January through June) on ...
To determine whether the concentration of airborne virulent Rhodococcus equi varied by location (stall vs paddock) and month on horse farms. Air samples from stalls and paddocks used to house mares and foals on 30 horse breeding farms in central Kentucky. Air samples from 1 stall and 1 paddock were...
