The function of the vestibular apparatus is to translate gravitational forces and movement into nerve impulses that the brain can process in order to determine the position of the head in space and, therefore, co-ordinate movements of the head with the motor reflexes responsible for stability and the position of the eyes. The functions of the vestibular apparatus are categorised under the name of...
The frequency of infestation by D. immitis in the cat is related to that in the dog living in the same area, but the prevalence is usually lower. Given that cats are two to four times less attractive to mosquitoes than are dogs and that 25% of cats are naturally resistant to infestation by D. immitis, the prevalence in the cat is about 10% that found in dogs [3](data verified in the field by...
Among the many congenital abnormalities found in the dog and cat, cleft lip, cleft palate or the concomitant presence of both of these malformations are among the most common; however, no precise data on their incidence in these species is available. In the dog, the reported frequency varies from 1/1000 to around 27%; in the cat, no official publication on the subject is available. Although...

Prostatic diseases include benign or cystic hyperplasia, squamous metaplasia, paraprostatic cysts, prostatitis and prostatic neoplasias. In view of their greater sensitivity to genital and urinary tract infections and the presence of prostatic hyperplasia the predisposition for prostatic diseases is greater in dogs than in cats.   ANATOMY AND PHYSIOLOGY
