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....
DNA mutations of the cat: The good, the bad and the ugly.
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...
Syndrome of inappropriate antidiuretic hormone secretion in a cat with a putative Rathke's cleft cyst.
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...
Molecular characterisation and phylogenetic analysis of feline astrovirus in Korean cats.
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...
Clinical evaluation of alfaxalone to induce and maintain anaesthesia in cats undergoing neutering procedures.
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...
Biological variation and reference change values of feline plasma biochemistry analytes.
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...
Screening diabetic cats for hypersomatotropism: performance of an enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay for insulin-like growth factor 1.
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...
Prevalence of intestinal parasites in pet shop kittens in Japan.
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...
Use of pheromones to reduce stress in sheltered cats.
Chondroma of the vertical ramus of the feline mandible.
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...
