The open wound shown on the hindlimb of this large mixed-breed dog (65a) started as a large necrotic lesion, probably toxic epidermal necrolysis or the result of a spider bite. An outline of care was given to the owner. The wound progressed well and is shown three weeks later (65b). At this time, reconstructive surgery was recommended. The dog was not returned for further care for four months...
The use of the high-dose dexamethasone suppression test (HDDS test) on blood is recommended when the low-dose dexamethasone suppression test (LDDS test) has not been able to differentiate adrenal-dependent hypercorticism (ADH) from pituitary-dependent hypercorticism (PDH). As a matter of fact, a pituitary tumour that does not respond to a dose of 0.01 mg/dl (low dose) of dexamethasone might...

Measurement of the urinary cortisol/creatinine ratio (UCCR) is based on the principle that if renal function is normal, the excretion of urinary creatinine remains fairly constant. Therefore, the cortisol/creatinine ratio eliminates the bias that the urine volume would have if the amount of cortisol in the urine were to be considered as an absolute value. In addition, regardless of the urine...
Behavioural changes secondary to organic diseases are relatively common and justify a careful clinical examination during a consultation for behavioural problems (Fig. 1). In the light of the model proposed by P. Pageat, the diagnosis of a behavioural disorder is a differential diagnosis, not a “hold all” diagnosis when an organic disease cannot be identified. An organic disease should be...
