  1. Treatment of acquired nasopharyngeal stenosis using a removable silicone stent.

    Journal of Feline Medicine & Surgery 17(2):117 (2015) PMID 24820997

    The aim of this prospective study was to characterise patient characteristics and the histories of cats with acquired nasopharyngeal stenosis (ANS), and to describe the use of a removable silicone stent for treatment. ANS was diagnosed in 15 cats with clinical signs present for a median of 4 months....
  2. DNA mutations of the cat: The good, the bad and the ugly.

    Journal of Feline Medicine & Surgery 17(3):203 (2015) PMID 25701860

    The health of the cat is a complex interaction between its environment (nurture) and its genetics (nature). Over 70 genetic mutations (variants) have been defined in the cat, many involving diseases, structural abnormalities and clinically relevant health concerns. As more of the cat's genome is dec...
  3. Syndrome of inappropriate antidiuretic hormone secretion in a cat with a putative Rathke's cleft cyst.

    Journal of Feline Medicine & Surgery 16(12):1010 (2014) PMID 24657877

    An 11-year-old spayed female domestic shorthair cat was evaluated for anorexia, lethargy and weight loss of 6 days' duration. Bilateral mydriasis, absent menace response, slow-to-absent pupillary light reflexes, bilateral retinal detachment, intermittent horizontal nystagmus, intermittent ventral st...
  4. Molecular characterisation and phylogenetic analysis of feline astrovirus in Korean cats.

    Journal of Feline Medicine & Surgery 16(8):679 (2014) PMID 24226753

    Astroviruses (AstVs) are important pathogens associated with enteric diseases in humans and other animals. However, most animal AstVs, including feline astrovirus (FAstV), are poorly understood. The aim of the present study was to investigate the prevalence and association of FAstV with enteric dise...
  5. Clinical evaluation of alfaxalone to induce and maintain anaesthesia in cats undergoing neutering procedures.

    Journal of Feline Medicine & Surgery 16(8):609 (2014) PMID 24305470

    This study looked at the use and efficacy of alfaxalone for total intravenous anaesthesia (TIVA) in cats. Following intramuscular medetomidine (20 μg/kg) and morphine (0.3 mg/kg) premedication, anaesthesia was induced and maintained with intravenous alfaxalone. Patients were breathing 100% oxygen. H...
  6. Biological variation and reference change values of feline plasma biochemistry analytes.

    Journal of Feline Medicine & Surgery 16(4):317 (2014) PMID 24217705

    This is the first report concerning biological variation and reference change values of feline plasma biochemistry components in the peer-reviewed literature. Biological variation refers to inherent physiological variation of analytes. The ratio of individual biological variation to group biological...
  7. Screening diabetic cats for hypersomatotropism: performance of an enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay for insulin-like growth factor 1.

    Journal of Feline Medicine & Surgery 16(2):82 (2014) PMID 23828811

    Screening diabetic cats for feline hypersomatotropism (HS) is currently dependent on using a radioimmunoassay (RIA) for measurement of growth hormone or insulin-like growth factor 1 (IGF-1), both of which require radioactivity, are costly and have limited availability. Performance of an enzyme-linke...
  8. Prevalence of intestinal parasites in pet shop kittens in Japan.

    Journal of Feline Medicine & Surgery 15(10):908 (2013) PMID 23635413

    The present study examined the prevalence of intestinal parasites in kittens from five pet shops in East Japan. Fresh faecal samples were collected from 555 kittens (aged 1-3 months) on a single occasion. The samples were tested for the presence of Giardia species coproantigen using a commercially a...
  9. Use of pheromones to reduce stress in sheltered cats.

    Journal of Feline Medicine & Surgery 15(9):829 (2013) PMID 23966008

  10. Chondroma of the vertical ramus of the feline mandible.

    Journal of Feline Medicine & Surgery 14(12):924 (2012) PMID 22718952

    A 5-year-old, castrated male, domestic shorthair cat presented with firm swelling in the right temporal region of the skull. The cat's jaws were almost locked in the closed position. Radiographs showed a mass with an irregular mineralized matrix superimposed on the caudal right mandible and temporom...
