Obesity can be defined as an “increase in body weight to a level superior to that considered normal for a given size and build of an animal” (W. R. Fenner). A body weight that is 20% or more over the normal standard is generally considered an indication of obesity. Obesity can be secondary to concomitant organic diseases (Fig. 1) or related to an excessive intake of calories. The main causes of...
Organophosphates and carbamates are commonly used as pesticides in the household environment, in agriculture, in industry and as parasiticides in veterinary medicine. The two groups of compounds share a common mechanism of action and have similar toxic effects on animals. Both groups include compounds with relatively low toxicity and others that are extremely toxic or lethal (nerve gases).
Lead (Pb) is a heavy metal that can be found in its metallic form or as a salt. It can be found in old house paints, products for art work, upholstery accessories, welding, battery components, golf balls, oil used in petrol-run engines/machinery, lead casts and tiles. Lead poisoning (saturnism) occurs through: Licking paints; Eating food stored in lead-containing recipients; Drinking water...
Arterial thromboembolism (ATE) or cardiogenic ATE (CATE) is an acute ischaemic disease resulting from the spontaneous formation of a clot in the heart chambers (usually in the left atrium) which, through the circulation, reaches the most peripheral arteries, obstructing them. Arterial thromboembolism is usually associated with heart disease and more rarely can be the consequence of trauma,...
Inappropriate micturition consists of the emission of substantial amounts of urine in large puddles on horizontal, usually adsorbent and “modifiable” substrates in various parts of the house (rather than in the litter box). The sequence of elimination is as follows: the cat explores the substrate by smelling it, digs a hollow with its forelimbs, turns on itself, progressively “crouching”, empties...
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...
All the research carried out so far has clearly demonstrated that Canine parvovirus-2 (CPV-2)  [3]is an antigenic derivative of Feline panleucopenia virus (FPV) which developed around 1970. Indeed the amino acid homology of CPV-2 and FPV is more than 98%. The diagram below shows the probable evolution of CPV-2 over time: CPV-2 was initially spread among various different species of wild...
