Pituitary carcinoma in an Airedale terrier - Puente, Sharon
A 6-year-old Airdale terrier showed behavioral changes for 1 mo, progressing to neurological signs that included proprioceptive deficits, circling, anisocoria, and head pressing. A large, invasive, pituitary carcinoma was diagnosed at postmortem.
Physeal dysplasia with slipped capital femoral epiphysis in a cat - Burke, Julie
A 14-month-old, intact male cat presented with acute onset, severe right hind limb lameness. Pelvic radiographs, excision of the femoral head, and histopathologic examination resulted in a diagnosis of physeal dysplasia with slipped capital femoral epiphysis. The cat rapidly regained use of the affected limb.
Surgical removal of a mammary adenocarcinoma and a granulosa cell tumor in an African pygmy hedgehog - Wellehan, James F.X.; Southorn, Erin; Smith, Dale A.; Taylor, Michael
A 3-year-old, female African pygmy hedgehog (Atelerix albiventris) was referred with a history of hematuria. Hyperglycemia and glucosuria were found at presentation. Mammary adenocarcinoma and a granulosa cell tumor were found and removed surgically. Glucosuria and hematuria resolved, and the hedgehog has done well for 10 mo postoperatively.
Esophageal achalasia and secondary megaesophagus in a dog - Boria, Pedro A.; Webster, Cynthia R.L.; Berg, John
A 5-year-old, castrated male, golden retriever was presented with a history of regurgitation. An esophagram revealed normal peristalsis with failure of the lower esophageal sphincter to open, supporting the diagnosis of esophageal achalasia. Prior to surgery, the dog developed megaesophagus. Heller's esophagomyotomy resolved the clinical signs and the esophageal dilation.
Prevalence of Salmonella in dairy herds in Alberta - Sorensen, Ole; McFall, Margaret; Manninen, Ken
Fifty dairy herds in Alberta were tested for the presence of Salmonella. Four (8%) dairy herds had at least 1 cow shedding Salmonella.
