Measurement of systemic immunoglobulin (Ig) concentrations in horses and camelids is important for early and accurate diagnosis of immunodeficiencies in order to provide proper medical intervention. As a consequence, there is a demand for up-to-date, economic, rapid and precise diagnostic assays for...

One of the major limitations of the use of optoacoustics (OA) for the imaging of prostate cancer is the relatively low resolution when performed in real time. The work presented in this thesis aims to address this limitation by applying frequency-based analyses, which contribute additional informati...

This report describes previously unreported upper airway abnormalities encountered in a 5-month-old American miniature horse colt presented for elective surgery. Caution should be exercised when administering general anesthesia or heavy sedation to individuals of this breed that present with multipl...

OBJECTIVE: To evaluate use of infrared spectroscopy for diagnosis of traumatic arthritis in horses. ANIMALS: 48 horses with traumatic arthritis and 5 clinically and radiographically normal horses. PROCEDURES: Synovial fluid samples were collected from 77 joints in 48 horses with traumatic arthritis....

Blood supply to the intestine can suddenly be interrupted. Acute mesenteric intestinal ischemia often requires invasive surgery to restore blood supply to the intestine. Early correction of vascular insufficiency is the most important factor in improving patient survival when confronted with acute m...

In North America, there are few representative data about the effects of management practices on equine welfare. In a randomized survey of 312 nonracing horses in Prince Edward Island (response rate 68.4%), owners completed a pretested questionnaire and a veterinarian examined each horse. Regression...

Near infrared spectroscopy (NIRS) is a convenient noninvasive method for measuring both tissue oxygenation and total hemoglobin. The utility of this method was investigated using a porcine model for detecting areas of ischemia and monitoring intestinal hemodynamics. Sections of the small intestine w...

An equine abuse policy was developed as an adjunct to an equine management survey. If at least 3 of 5 categories caused concern, a report to the authorities was indicated. The policy was not used but, in the absence of other guidelines, it might assist veterinarians considering potential abuse cases...

A 4.5-kg urachal abscess involving the umbilical arteries was diagnosed in a 12-week-old Holstein heifer. The urinary bladder wall was adhered to the mass, and there were multiple adhesions of the jejunum, which were associated with incomplete extra-mural obstruction. Adhesiolysis was completed. One...

There are no detailed, representative, horse-level data about equine management practices in different parts of Canada. To help address this, the demographics, management, and welfare of 312 nonracing horses in Prince Edward Island were examined in a randomized, horse-level survey during summer 2002...

Humeral fractures are rare and usually carry a guarded prognosis in adult horses. This paper describes the evaluation and the successful surgical management of a fracture of the lateral supracondyloid crest and part of the epicondyle of the humerus in an adult quarter horse.

OBJECTIVE: To determine concentrations of tritiated polysulfated glycosaminoglycans (3H-PSGAG) in serum, urine, and the superficial digital flexor tendon (SDFT) of rabbits after IM administration and molecular weight of 3H-PSGAG recovered from the SDFT. ANIMALS: Twenty-five 12-week-old New Zealand W...

OBJECTIVE: To evaluate the effect of pubic symphysiodesis (PS) on pelvic development in skeletally immature dogs. STUDY DESIGN: Prospective randomized clinical trial. ANIMALS: Eight 4 month-old, sexually intact female Greyhounds. METHODS: Initial PS was performed at 4 months of age using a powered s...

The clinical features, radiographic findings, treatment, and outcome in 51 draft horses with osteochondritis dessicans (OCD) or subchondral cystic lesions (SC) are reported. Clydesdale and Percheron were the most commonly affected breeds, and affected animals represented only 5% of the hospital popu...

A calf was treated for chronic infectious arthritis and osteomyelitis of the carpus and metacarpus by carpal bone excision, debridement, and cancellous bone graft placement in the metacarpal medullary cavity. Following 6 weeks of limb immobilization, carpal-metacarpal arthrodesis was achieved. The h...

The use of representative in vitro models has been favoured for the study of biologic and pharmacologic responses of the equine superficial digital flexor tendon (SDFT). The objectives of this study were to determine the effects of exogenous sodium hyaluronate (NaHA) and polysulfated glycosaminoglyc...

OBJECTIVE: To compare the effects of different commercial nutrient media and sera on protein synthesis and maintenance of cellular density in cultures of the equine superficial digital flexor tendon (SDFT). ANIMALS: 8 healthy 2- to 4-year-old horses. PROCEDURE: First Dulbecco's modified Eagle's medi...
