Prevalence of dermatophytes and other superficial fungal organisms in asymptomatic guinea pigs in Southern Italy.
Guinea pigs have been indicated as a potential source of zoophilic dermatophytes that cause human dermatomycosis. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the prevalence of dermatophytes as well as saprophytic fungi in asymptomatic pet guinea pigs in Southern Italy. Two-hundred pet guinea pigs were...
Complete uterine prolapse without uterine mucosal eversion in a queen.
A five-year-old female cat weighing 3 kg was presented by the owner after noticing a large pink, bilobed mass protruding through the vulva during labour. The cat was in good condition, with appropriate lactation, and the newborn kittens were nursing normally. The uterus was not reverted or invaginat...
Diagnostic performance of P wave duration in the identification of left atrial enlargement in dogs.
One hundred and fifty-six dogs were included in the study. Average P wave durations of 20, 30, 40 and 50 milliseconds yielded sensitivities of 100, 85, 68 and 40% and specificities of 0, 16, 64 and 93%, respectively, for the diagnosis of Left Atrial Enlargement by echocardiography. The estimated are...
Familial subvalvular aortic stenosis in golden retrievers: inheritance and echocardiographic findings.
Thirty-two of 73 dogs were affected and their aortic velocities were as follows: range 2·5 to 6·8 m/s, median 3·4 m/s and standard deviation 1·2 m/s. Echocardiographic characteristics of 32 affected dogs were distributed as follows: left ventricular hypertrophy 12 of 32, aortic insufficiency 20...
Primary care veterinary usage of systemic glucocorticoids in cats and dogs in three UK practices.
Overall, 1877 (16·68%) cat consultations and 2913 (14·55%) dog consultations resulted in systemic glucocorticoid therapy. Cats received higher parenteral (P<0·0001) dose levels than dogs. Pathophysiological indication, age, skin condition, sex and clinic attended were signifi...
Magnetic resonance imaging enhancement of intervertebral disc disease in 30 dogs following chemical fat saturation.
To describe the patterns of enhancement of extradural intervertebral disc on chemically fat saturated gadolinium-enhanced magnetic resonance images and to investigate the clinical and pathological associations with enhancement. Medical records and magnetic resonance i...
A prospective study of systolic ejection murmurs and left ventricular outflow tract in boxers.
Presence and intensity of heart murmurs varied in the same dog and between dogs, but flow velocities did not change. Estimated effective orifice diameter (EOD) and indexed EOD was significantly narrower than measured subvalvular and valvular diameters. Clinical Significance: The variability in prese...
Static and dynamic ultrasonography for the early diagnosis of canine hip dysplasia.
To determine the feasibility of sonographical examination of hip joints in non-sedated puppies and to assess the value of static and dynamic ultrasonography for the early diagnosis of canine hip dysplasia (CHD). Prospective study was carried out. Five hundred and sixty-six puppies between the ages o...
