  3. Feline systemic hypertension:Classification and pathogenesis

    Journal of Feline Medicine & Surgery 13(1):25 (2011) PMID 21215946

    Practical relevance The increased availability of indirect blood pressure monitoring devices in clinical practice over the past decade has highlighted the significance of systemic hypertension in the feline population. Without routine monitoring and appropriate intervention, cats with ...
  4. Lower respiratory tract infections in cats:Reaching beyond empirical therapy

    Journal of Feline Medicine & Surgery 13(5):313 (2011) PMID 21515220

    Practical relevance Lower respiratory tract infections (LRTIs) in cats can be due to bacteria, parasites, fungi and viruses. This review details the practical investigation of these infections and highlights specific therapy where possible. The aim is to avoid the all-too-frequent temp...
  5. Uncontrolled study assessing the impact of a psyllium-enriched extruded dry diet on faecal consistency in cats with constipation

    Two field trials, involving 66 cats (15 trial 1; 51 trial 2) were conducted to assess the efficacy of a psyllium-enriched diet for management of constipation in cats. After investigations and faecal evacuation (by enema if required), all cats were fed on a moderate fibre, psyllium-enriched,...
  6. Anaphylactic events observed within 4 h of ocular application of an antibiotic-containing ophthalmic preparation: 61 cats (1993–2010)

    Journal of Feline Medicine & Surgery 13(10):744 (2011) PMID 21906985

    This study describes signalment, history, antibiotic administered, clinical signs observed, therapy, and outcome of anaphylactic events within 4 h following ophthalmic administration of an antibiotic to cats. Data came from survey responses (45 cats) or Federal Drug Administration reports (...
  7. Sensitivity of cytopathological examination in the diagnosis of feline sporotrichosis

    Journal of Feline Medicine & Surgery 13(4):220 (2011) PMID 21131220

    Sporotrichosis is caused by Sporothrix schenckii. The cat is the animal species most affected by this mycosis and plays an important role in the zoonotic transmission of this disease. The definitive diagnosis is made by isolation of the fungus in culture; however, cytopathological ex...
  8. Congenital diaphragmatic eventration in two closely related British Shorthair cats

    Journal of Feline Medicine & Surgery 13(4):276 (2011) PMID 21239200

    Two closely related British Shorthair cats, which died after surgery performed in the dorsal position, were presented for dissection. In both, a thin, flaccid, enlarged transparent tendinous diaphragmatic portion protruded cranially into the thoracic cavity, forming a cupola in which left, ...
