The term periodontal disease (paradontosis, periodontitis, parodontopathy, pyorrhoea) covers several pathological conditions, specifically gingivitis and periodontitis, which in its turn is classified in various degrees. Periodontal disease is probably the condition encountered most often in domestic carnivores; over eighty percent of dogs are affected by it and it is commonly present also in the...
Liver diseases often represent a real diagnostic challenge. The clinical signs present may be nonspecific and no single test is available for the identification of the underlying problem. The liver has an enormous reserve capacity and clinical signs may not appear until significant liver abnormalities are present.

Domestication is a human-controlled evolutionary process which has been the cause of genetic, morphological and behavioural modifications necessary for the adaptation process to the human environment. Wolves and dogs have major phylogenetic as well as behavioural differences, to the extent that they can be considered as two distinct species. Recent studies have shown that adult dogs have specific...
AETIOLOGY AND EPIDEMIOLOGY The term "Lyme disease" is derived from the name of a small town in Connecticut, Old Lyme, where, in 1975, numerous cases of arthritis of suspected infectious origin were detected in the majority of both the adult and paediatric population. The disease has also been described in the European literature since quite some time.
The descent of the testes from the abdominal cavity where they originate is the characteristic feature of animal species defined as having externalised testes. In such animals the prepubertal location of the testes outside the abdomen ensures an intratesticular temperature 3-5°C lower than body temperature, a condition necessary for spermatogenesis. Abnormal testicular descent refers to the lack...
