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...
Haematological and biochemical reference intervals of four feline breeds.
Many feline breeds have been generated from a small number of ancestors. Thus, breed-specific peculiarities can be expected, which could include haematological and biochemical measurements. Despite this, there are only a few reports on breed-specific reference intervals (RI). This information is ess...
Mineral metabolism in growing cats: changes in the values of blood parameters with age.
Our results, showing changes in most parameters of mineral metabolism during growth, reinforce the need to use adequate age-related reference values for diagnostic purposes....
Induction of scratching behaviour in cats: efficacy of synthetic feline interdigital semiochemical.
The aim of the study was to evaluate the effects of synthetic feline interdigital semiochemical (FIS) on the induction of scratching behaviour in cats during a standardised behavioural test. The trial was a randomised blinded study on a single group of subjects, following a crossover design. The scr...
Feline CKD: Current therapies - what is achievable?
Treatment of feline chronic kidney disease (CKD) tends to focus on minimising the adverse effects of reduced renal function, rather than addressing an underlying cause. Despite this, and the progressive nature of CKD, treatment can improve quality of life and enable many cats to have long survival t...
Aspergillosis in cats: ABCD guidelines on prevention and management.
Aspergillosis is a sporadic mycosis that occurs worldwide in mammals and birds and leads to a usually chronic, and only rarely acute, disease that mainly affects the nasal cavity and sinuses. Aspergillus species infections are commonly associated with predisposing local or systemic factors. Local di...
Mammary Tumours in the Cat: Size matters, so early intervention saves lives.
Practical relevance: Mammary tumours are among the most common neoplasms in both cats and dogs, but the prevalence of malignant histological types is far higher in cats (ratio of malignant:benign is at least 4:1). Clinical challenges: The more aggressive nature of mammary neoplasia in cats poses cha...
