Open-label trial of a multi-strain synbiotic in cats with chronic diarrhea.
This study was designed to test the hypothesis that in cats with chronic diarrhea the daily administration of a proprietary synbiotic (Proviable-DC) would result in an improvement in stool character, as assessed by the owner. Adult cats with chronic diarrhea were recruited for the st...
Survey of the feline leukemia virus infection status of cats in Southern Germany.
Most studies that investigate the prevalence of infections with feline leukemia virus (FeLV) are based on the detection of p27 antigen in blood, but they do not detect proviral DNA to identify the prevalence of regressive FeLV infections. The aim of the present study was to assess th...
A fresh face and a new chapter.
Aplastic anemia in cats - clinicopathological features and associated disease conditions 1996-2004.
A retrospective study of 128 feline bone marrow reports identified 13 cases of aplastic anemia. Clinical diagnoses included chronic renal failure (n=5), feline leukemia virus infection (n=2), hyperthyroidism treated with methimazole (n=1) and idiopathic aplastic anemia (n=5). In some cats, starvatio...
Management of carpal hyperextension injury in a cat using combined temporary transarticular internal and external skeletal fixation.
This report describes the successful management of a carpal hyperextension injury in a cat using combined temporary transarticular internal and external skeletal fixation, without performing an arthrodesis. To our knowledge, there have been no previous reports of management of feline carpal hyperext...
Comparison of serum fatty acid concentrations in cats with hypertrophic cardiomyopathy and healthy controls.
n-3 fatty acids have some benefits in humans and dogs with cardiac disease, and plasma n-3 fatty acid concentrations have been shown to be decreased in dogs with congestive heart failure (CHF). However, there are no published studies reporting fatty acid concentrations in cats with cardiac disease....
Per-endoscopic trans-tympanic traction for the management of feline aural inflammatory polyps: a case review of 37 cats.
Feline aural inflammatory polyps are benign growths originating from the tympanic cavity or the Eustachian tube. They usually occur in young cats, which present either signs of otitis externa and otitis media, or respiratory signs, depending on the direction of polyp growth. Neurological signs are a...
Evaluation of low-dose metronomic (LDM) cyclophosphamide toxicity in cats with malignant neoplasia.
I gastrointestinal toxicity during the first month of treatment, which was controlled with antiemetics. Overall, 2/24 cats (8%) showed grade I haematological toxicities and 1/24 (4%) showed grade I renal toxicity in the first 4 weeks. Median follow-up for all cats was 30 days (range 30-360 days). Fo...
Pyogranulomatous mural folliculitis in a cat treated with methimazole.
An 11-year-old spayed female domestic shorthair cat was presented for polydipsia, hyperactivity and bilateral thyroid gland enlargement. Total T4 (TT4) was in the upper interval range; therefore, an early hyperthyroidism was suspected. A treatment trial with methimazole was started, as the owner ref...
Prevalence and risk factor analysis of feline haemoplasma infection in New Zealand domestic cats using a real-time PCR assay.
Haemotropic mycoplasmas (haemoplasmas) are small epierythrocytic bacteria that have the potential to cause severe, life-threatening haemolytic anaemia. The aim of the current study was to evaluate feline haemoplasma prevalence using real-time polymerase chain reaction (PCR) from a convenience sample...
