Exercises in canine physical rehabilitation: range of motion of the forelimb during stair and ramp ascent.
To evaluate overall joint range of motion of the forelimb in healthy dogs ascending stairs compared with incline slope walking. Normal canine forelimb kinematics (range of motion, flexion and extension) were compared during ascent of stairs or a ramp, and compared to unimpeded trotting on a flat sur...
Urine concentrations of xanthine, hypoxanthine and uric acid in UK Cavalier King Charles spaniels.
Xanthine urolithiasis and asymptomatic xanthinuria have been diagnosed in Cavalier King Charles spaniel dogs suggesting that primary xanthinuria may be a breed-related disorder, although its prevalence remains unclear. The hypothesis of this study was that asymptomatic xanthinuria is common in Caval...
An ex vivo investigation of the effect of the TATE canine elbow arthroplasty system on kinematics of the elbow.
To devise a kinematic technique to objectively ascertain the location and orientation of the centre of rotation of the canine elbow and to compare this axis following arthroplasty with the first generation TATE™ prosthesis in an ex vivo model. Five pairs of cadaveric forelimbs were obtained and prox...
Biological effects of short-term salmon oil administration, using distinct salmon oil sources in healthy dogs.
To assess the short-term effects of feeding distinct salmon oil sources in healthy dogs. A diet containing chicken fat as major fat source was fed to 17 dogs for 14 days. For the next 14 days, dogs received one of two diets, both with 1% of chicken fat exchanged for 1% salmon oil; Norwegian or Scott...
A new method of computing the vertebral heart scale by means of direct standardisation.
The aim of this study was to describe and compare a simplified vertebral heart scale computation method (Objective VHS) with the original Buchanan method (Buchanan VHS). The Objective VHS was compared to the Buchanan VHS method in 42 dogs including 14 healthy dogs and 28 dogs with mitral insufficien...
Calcium and phosphate homeostasis in hyperthyroid cats: associations with development of azotaemia and survival time.
Two hundred and seven hyperthyroid cats were included. Elevated plasma parathyroid hormone concentrations, hyperphosphataemia, decreased plasma fibroblast growth factor-23 concentrations and hypocalcaemia were documented; however, all parameters returned to reference intervals following treatment of...
Total hip replacement for the treatment of atraumatic slipped femoral capital epiphysis in dogs.
Fifteen cases were identified; 14 were affected unilaterally, 1 bilaterally. Median age at presentation was 13 months (range 6 to 30); median weight was 35 kg (range 10 to 66). Radiographically, proximal femoral sclerosis was evident in 13 of 16 hips. Thirteen hybrid and three cemented total hip rep...
Pharmacological options for intra-operative and early postoperative analgesia: an update.
The motto of the 2011 Global Year Against Acute Pain was 'Anticipate, Assess, Alleviate'. Recent advances in acute pain management include novel applications of widely used drugs, new techniques, as well as further development in our knowledge of pain scoring in veterinary patients....
Rhinolithiasis in two miniature dogs.
This case report describes two dogs, a Chihuahua and a Pekingese each with rhinolithiasis. Both dogs were presented with chronic nasal obstruction and discharge. Rhinoliths were noted on computed tomography scans in both animals, and removed via endoscopic extraction in one case and...
Toggle rod stabilisation of coxofemoral luxation in 14 cats.
Fourteen cats were included. All of the cats had reported unilateral craniodorsal hip luxation. Nine cats (64·3%) had additional orthopaedic injuries. Luxations were stabilised with a 3·2-mm toggle rod (2·7-mm toggle rod in one cat) and two loops of four-metric polydioxanone (five-metric polydiox...
