Treatment of septicaemia and severe bacterial infections in foals with a new cefquinome formulation: a field study.
A multicentre field study was conducted in accordance with VICH Guideline on Good Clinical Practice (VICH 2000) to confirm the efficacy and safety of a new formulation of cefquinome for the treatment of naturally occurring severe bacterial infections and septicaemia in foals. Thirty-nine foals suffe...
[A case of a congenital high-grade hydrocephalus internus and Dandy-Walker syndrome in a black and white German Holstein calf].
A black and white female German Holstein calf showed a highly deformed cranium. The animal was not able to stand. Further findings were bilateral strabismus divergens and negative pupillary light reflexes. Magnetic resonance imaging and pathological-anatomical examination showed that the cerebrum wa...
[Congenital hydrocephalus internus of the dog: clinical, computed tomographic and pathomorphological features of six cases].
The present study rates the value of different investigative procedures used to diagnose a congenital hydrocephalus internus of the dog. Six dogs, aged between two and ten months, were presented in our clinic with neurologic signs because of a congenital hydrocephalus internus. After taking a neurol...
[Detection of psittacid herpesvirus 1 in Amazon parrots with cloacal papilloma (internal papillomatosis of parrots, IPP) in an aviary of dif...
We may speculate that there is correlation between the infection with PsHV-1 and the development of cloacal adenomas, adenocarcinomas in the pancreas and carcinomas of the bile ducts. Our results indicate that there may be a higher susceptibility in certain amazon species, while other species may no...
[Training of dogs--legal assessment of the use of electric collars].
The use of an electric collar for training dogs is fundamentally forbidden. The verdict of the Federal German Administrative Court dated February 23, 2006 (ref. 3 C 14.05) provides legal clarity and indicates the approach to be taken to enable exceptions from the fundamental ban on electric collars....
[Transmission of agents of the porcine respiratory disease complex (PRDC) between swine herds: a review. Part 2--Pathogen transmission via s...
The transmission of PRDC-pathogens (PRRSV, influenza virus A, PCV2, M. hyopneumoniae, A. pleuropneumoniae) between swine herds, which was summarized in the first part of the review, mainly occurs via pig movement. The risk of pathogen transmission by insemination with contaminated semen plays only a...
[Transmission of agents of the porcine respiratory disease complex (PRDC) between swine herds: a review. Part 1--diagnosis, transmission by ...
Knowledge on the different ways of transmitting PRDC pathogens (PRRSV, influenza virus A, PCV 2, M. hyopneumoniae, A. pleuropneumoniae) between swine herds is of special interest for the development of biosecurity measures or the retrospective risk analysis in the framework of activities of the cons...
[Origin, structure and distribution of dioxins].
Polychlorinated dibenzo-para-dioxins (PCDD) and polychlorinated dibenzofurans (PCDF) are generated as unintentional by-products in a number of thermal and chemical-industrial processes. Biogenic formation through dimerization of chlorinated precursors, such as chlorophenols, is know but does not pla...
[Effects of different liver diseases on the platelet count in dogs].
Changes of the platelet count in liver diseases are described in humans. Thrombocytopenia was observed more frequently than thrombocytosis. There are only a few investigations on platelet counts in liver diseases in dogs. The goal of the present study was to investigate the influence of different li...
A versatile flow cytometry-based immunofluorescence inhibition assay for the detection of bovine viral diarrhea virus-specific antibodies.
A fast, sensitive and reliable flow cytometry-based (FACS = fluorescence activated cell sorting) immunofluorescence inhibition assay (FACS-IFI) for the detection of virus-specific antibodies in sera is described. The method was evaluated using sera from cattle experimentally infected with bovine vir...
