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...
Management of bilateral ureteral trauma using ureteral stents and subsequent subcutaneous ureteral bypass devices in a cat.
This report describes a cat that presented with abdominal pain and worsening azotaemia following unknown trauma. Further diagnostic investigations and surgery confirmed bilateral ureteral trauma. The cat was initially managed surgically by bilateral ureteroureterostomy over ureteral stents. The clin...
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...
Idiopathic generalised tremor syndrome in two cats.
Two male neutered domestic shorthair cats were evaluated for generalised tremors. On neurological examination both cats showed whole-body tremors, worsening with stress. A mainly cerebellar disorder was suspected. Blood examination, cerebrospinal fluid analysis and electrophysiological examination o...
Cloprostenol treatment of feline open-cervix pyometra.
Treatment with cloprostenol, a prostaglandin synthetic analogue, was evaluated in five queens with open-cervix pyometra. Cloprostenol was administered (5 μg/kg body weight SC) on 3 consecutive days and amoxicillin (20 mg/kg body weight IM) on 7 consecutive days. Transient post-injection reactions ca...
Effect of neutering and breed on femoral and tibial physeal closure times in male and female domestic cats.
The timing of physeal closure is dependent upon many factors, including gonadal steroids, and previous studies have shown that early neutering delays physeal closure. Pelvic and femoral radiographs of 808 cats were analysed and physes at the greater trochanter, proximal femur, distal femur and proxi...
Leptospira species infection in cats: ABCD guidelines on prevention and management.
Leptospirosis is a bacterial disease affecting a variety of domestic and wild animals as well as humans worldwide. Leptospirosis has been reported in over 150 mammalian species. It is considered an emerging infectious disease in humans and in dogs. Subclinically infected wild and domestic animals se...
