Insulin-secreting beta cell neoplasia in a 10-year-old dog - Vallee, Ian K.
A 10-year-old collie-cross presented with intermittent episodes of pelvic limb weakness and collapse. Hypoglycemia, secondary to an insulin-secreting beta cell tumor, was suspected on the basis of clinical signs and serum biochemistry. Conservative dietary therapy consisted of multiple small meals, limited exercise, and avoidance of foods containing simple sugars.
Laparoscopic colopexy in a horse - Butt, Troy D.; Wilson, David G.
An 11-year-old Trakehner gelding required 2 ventral midline celiotomies for correction of a large colon volvulus and a large colon displacement, respectively. Laparoscopic colopexy was performed 50 days following the 2nd celiotomy. Delayed laparoscopic colopexy is minimally invasive and does not disrupt the ventral midline incision following abdominal exploration.
Efficacy of a paste formulation of omeprazole for the treatment of naturally occurring gastric ulcers in training standardbred racehorses in Canada - Doucet, Michèle Y.; Vrins, André A.; Dionne, Rachel; Alva, Roberto; Ericsson, Glenn
The efficacy of a paste formulation of the H+, K+, -ATPase inhibitor omeprazole was evaluated in standardbred racehorses for the treatment and prevention of gastric ulcers. Twenty standardbred racehorses in training, aged 2 to 9 years, were enrolled from 2 training centres in this field trial. Endoscopic examinations confirmed the presence of gastric ulcers in all horses, prior to allocation and treatment and on day 0. Lesions were scored on a scale of 0 to 3 (intact epithelium to extensive ulceration). Replicates were formed, based on training level and location. Within replicates, 1 horse was assigned to group 1 and...
