Schirmer’s test is normally used to measure the aqueous component of the tear film. It must be performed BEFORE any other ophthalmological examination requiring the use of drugs that interfere with tear secretion (reduced by local anaesthetics and parasympatholytic mydriatics, increased by parasympathomimetics). When it is necessary to perform the test AFTER administration of the above-...
Feline immunodeficiency virus (FIV) is a lymphotropic lentivirus that causes an acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (AIDS) in domestic felidae. Although antigenically distinct, FIV is morphologically and biochemically correlated to human immunodeficiency virus (HIV). Both viruses exhibit a similar pathogenesis, characterized by a long period of clinical latency during which the functions of the...

The dog’s face has a tragic expression. Large clumps of hair...

With this method, surgery to the mandible and maxilla can be carried out more conservatively, with less trauma to the patient and a better post-operative recovery in comparison to traditional surgery using periosteal...
Laryngeal paralysis (LP) is a well recognised and potentially life threatening condition seen predominantly in older large-breed dogs. However, it is increasingly being recognised also in cats. The condition results either from dysfunction of the caudal laryngeal nerves, which are terminations of the recurrent laryngeal nerves, or from damage to the dorsal cricoarytenoid muscles. The caudal...
