Treatment of acquired nasopharyngeal stenosis using a removable silicone stent.
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....
Exploration of paclitaxel (Taxol) as a treatment for malignant tumors in cats: a descriptive case series.
Paclitaxel, an effective chemotherapeutic agent in human oncology, has received little evaluation in feline patients. The diluent used to solubilize paclitaxel, polyoxyethylated castor oil (Cremophor EL), causes anaphylactoid reactions in human and dogs, which limits enthusiasm for use of this agent...
Molecular study on selected vector-borne infections in urban stray colony cats in northern Italy.
Feline vector-borne diseases can be caused by a range of pathogens transmitted by arthropods. Many of these infections have zoonotic implications, and stray cats are potential sentinels for human and pet health. This study investigated the prevalence of selected vector-borne infections in stray colo...
Assessment of five formulae to predict post-transfusion packed cell volume in cats.
This retrospective study aimed to identify the most accurate formula for estimating the increase in packed cell volume (PCV) after whole blood transfusion of cats, as several formulae have been reported but not validated. Forty cats, of varying breeds and gender, were included from two referral inst...
Inflammatory joint disease in cats: diagnostic approach and treatment.
Osteoarthritis, a degenerative non-inflammatory joint disease, is common in cats, usually causing gradual changes in behavior and lifestyle rather than severe lameness. Inflammatory arthritis occurs much less frequently and is nearly always associated with debilitating lameness. It may have an infec...
Case series of feline panleukopenia virus in an animal shelter.
The aim of this study was to describe a series of confirmed and suspected cases of feline panleukopenia virus (FPV) and in-contact cats in an adoption-guarantee shelter in an FPV-endemic area by reviewing shelter records over a 10-month period (January-October 2010). Cats were divided into three gro...
Cystourethroscopy in the cat: What do you need? When do you need it? How do you do it?
Diagnostic and therapeutic cystourethroscopy has become very popular in the diagnosis and treatment of canine lower and upper urinary tract disease in the past 5-7 years. As expertise is expanding, the use of similar techniques in feline patients is growing. This is a brief overview of the indicatio...
Comparison of high-definition oscillometry -- a non-invasive technology for arterial blood pressure measurement -- with a direct invasive me...
These results suggest that HDO met the validation criteria defined by the American College of Veterinary Internal Medicine consensus panel and provided a faithful measurement of SBP in conscious cats. For DBP, results suggest that HDO tended to underestimate DBP. This finding is clearly inconsistent...
Xanthine urolithiasis causing bilateral ureteral obstruction in a 10-month-old cat.
Xanthine urolithiasis was diagnosed in a 10-month-old intact female domestic shorthair cat presented with acute renal failure due to bilateral ureteral obstruction. Ultrasonography revealed the presence of multiple uroliths in both kidneys and ureters that were not detectable on previous survey radi...
Feline CKD: Diagnosis, staging and screening - what is recommended?
Feline chronic kidney disease (CKD) is frequently encountered by veterinarians. Timely diagnosis and staging may facilitate the initiation of adequate therapy and improve the prognosis for patients. Feline CKD is diagnosed based on the presence of compatible clinical signs and renal azotaemia, which...
