Robenacoxib for Pain Management in Cats with Chronic Musculoskeletal Disease
NSAIDs can alleviate musculoskeletal pain in cats, but many clinicians are wary of potential adverse effects with long-term use. A pooled analysis of 4 clinical trials asks if those worries are overblown.
Findings & Prognosis for Refeeding Syndrome in Cats
Refeeding syndrome can cause severe metabolic derangements as well as neurologic, cardiovascular, and GI dysfunction that may require intensive care. Explore the clinicopathologic findings, management, and outcomes of this complex condition.
Long-Term Outcomes of Cats with Idiopathic Cystitis
Although feline idiopathic cystitis (FIC) usually self-resolves, periuria and recurrence may lead to extreme outcomes (eg, surrender, euthanasia). Discover the long-term rates of recurrence and mortality in cats diagnosed with FIC.
Adverse Effects of Mycophenolate Mofetil in Dogs with Immune-Mediated Disease
An increasingly popular immunosuppressive drug, mycophenolate mofetil, can cause GI, hematologic, and dermatologic adverse effects. Discover the likelihood of each as well as the time to onset and resolution of the most common one.
Ophthalmic Screening for Systemic Hypertension in Cats
Fundic lesions can help diagnose both ocular and systemic diseases, but can nonspecialty-trained clinicians realistically detect these sometimes subtle changes? A recent graduate was put to the test examining cats suspected of systemic hypertension.
Dexamethasone Sodium Phosphate Solution for Control of Feline Pruritus
Although glucocorticoids effectively control feline hypersensitivity dermatitis, there are no liquid oral options labeled for pruritus management in cats. Discover whether injectable dexamethasone sodium phosphate can be given orally to provide relief to atopic cats.
Resection of Thyroid Tumors with Vascular Invasion in Dogs
For humans with thyroid carcinoma, vascular invasion is an indicator of a worse prognosis, but the situation isn’t so clear in our canine patients. This retrospective study looked at 73 dogs treated for thyroid carcinoma to better understand the behavior of this slow-growing tumor.
Cytology & Clinical Signs of Eosinophilic Keratoconjunctivitis in Cats
Corneal cytology is an important tool in diagnosing feline eosinophilic keratoconjunctivitis. A new study looked at the microscopic findings from 15 cats to identify any potential correlation between cytology results and severity of clinical disease.
