Normal gait  in the dog and cat depends on the functional integrity of the cerebral cortex, the brainstem, cerebellum, spinal cord (ascending and descending pathways), peripheral nerves (sensory and motor), neuromuscular junctions and muscles. A voluntary movement is initiated by nerve impulses generated in the cerebral cortex or brainstem. The cerebellum co-ordinates these voluntary movements...
Tick-borne encephalitis (TBE) is an infection caused by an arbovirus called TBEV (Tick-Borne Encephalitis Virus). Arboviruses belong to different viral families that share the characteristic of being transmitted by arthropod vectors such as mosquitoes (Class Insecta) and ticks (Class Arachnida).1
Pyelonephritis is defined as an inflammatory process of the renal parenchyma and pelvis: the structures that can be involved are, therefore the renal papilla, cortex and medulla. Inflammation of only the pelvis is called pyelitis and, in the dog, is more common than pyelonephritis.1,2 Pyelonephritis may be unilateral or bilateral: in the former case the animal is usually asymptomatic and the...
Haemostasis is the consequence of a balanced interaction between blood cells, the vascular system, plasma proteins and low molecular weight substances. The body maintains the haemostatic system in continuous equilibrium in order that blood can circulate freely without alterations rendering it excessively dense (which would cause thrombosis) or fluid (which would cause haemorrhage). PERFECT...
The term euthyroid sick syndrome is used to describe the condition in animals which, in response to a pathological process, have a decrease in levels of circulating thyroid hormones despite an apparently normal thyroid gland.
Haemangiosarcoma of the bone is a rare malignancy, accounting for less than 5% of bone tumours. It affects middle-aged to elderly animals of different sizes, but in dogs it is more common among Boxers, Great Danes and German Shepherd dogs. It probably derives from the supportive connective tissue of the bone marrow. It is a very aggressive tumour, metastasising to numerous organs including the...
The human eye is capable of recognizing hypoxia only when it is severe enough to cause cyanosis. Even under ideal conditions, trained observers cannot detect hypoxaemia until saturation is less than 80%. The difficulty that physicians have, in detecting hypoxaemia, was exemplified in a study of over 14,000 patients being evaluated at the UCLA Emergency Department. Patients were monitored with...
